BMC INTRODUCES APRON BUS
The market of the APRON buses, the super-wide buses that transport passengers from the airport terminal to the parked airplanes seems limited. Some traditional bus manufactures have withdrawn from this niche market, giving a seemingly monopoly position to the famous Cobus.
BMC, encouraged by the finding that air travel steadily continues to increase, sees opportunities within this niche. Their stand in hall 9 boasts a mature, beautifully finished prototype. 14 meters long, 3 meters wide, fully low floor and space for 96 passengers of which 12 seated. The powertrain of this model includes a 4.5-liter Cummins diesel engine coupled to an Allison transmission. For the future and in response to the market demand, an electric drive will be developed later. BMC is proud of this new APRON and says to be determined to bring about some competition for Cobus.
