BUSWORLD AND A WORLD PREMIERE FROM VAN HOOL: THE EX11
Hall 5, booth 502
At Busworld Europe Van Hool will be presenting the EX11, the fourth model in the EX-range after to the EX15, EX16 and EX17. Just four years ago Van Hool launched the EX-range, a modern, efficient, innovative and comfortable alternative to the ever-increasing competition in the coach world market. Van Hool is exhibiting 8 vehicles at its booth and has 10 coaches available for test drives.
With the new EX11 Van Hool is responding to the increasing market demand to offer a well-equipped and comfortable vehicle in the 11-metre class. Including the L and H variants, with low or standard boarding height, the full EX-range consists of no fewer than 10 versions. All are available with powerful, economical DAF engines of the latest ‘NG’ generation, coupled with a wide range of manual, automated and automatic gearboxes.
The new Van Hool EX11 is available in two versions, 3.545 m high as the EX11L and the EX11H of 3.805 m height. Like all the Van Hool EX coaches, this “short one” is also built in Van Hool’s state-of-the-art factory in Skopje, Macedonia. The EX11L is fitted with a Paccar/DAF MX-11 270kW (367 hp) Euro 6 engine with 1900 Nm or the MX-11 300kW (408hp/2100Nm) and with a manual gearbox GO210(230), a ZF TraXon or the ZF EcoLife. The EX11H can also be equipped with the MX-11 330kW (449hp/2300 Nm) and the same choice in gearboxes.
Van Hool will seize this event to introduce technological innovations on a few of its vehicles. These innovations will be unveiled for the first time now at Busworld Europe 2019. Test vehicles outside the expo are for instance the new EX11 L S with TraXon gearbox, EX16 with TraXon or EcoLife gearbox and the Astronef and Astromega with Allison gearbox.
