July 8, 2022. These are the first units with Euro 6E emissions in Spain. They will be powered by biomethane produced from the waste collected by the Commonwealth itself. Although the gas currently comes from the network (100% from renewable sources), it will soon be the first time that a Spanish city will treat its waste and allocates it as its first use to moving its buses. This acquisition involves the recovery of waste and the reduction of CO2 emissions by more than 90% at the service of more sustainable transport.
The chassis of these buses is lighter (150 kg less) and incorporates the new generation of compressed natural gas (CNG) engines with a power of 340 CV and a torque of 1,500 Nm. It also has an Ecolife II gearbox, a kinematic chain that, together with a low-friction rear axle, maximizes energy and minimizes consumption. In fact, these engines have reduced fuel consumption by 15%. The buses that Moventis TCC has acquired, which will be delivered in the coming weeks, offer drivers a more spacious and adaptable driving position, the seat is heated and has a swivel base; also the new Scania full multiplex dashboard, integral, more ergonomic and with better air conditioning. The handbrake is electro-pneumatic, more accessible and easier to handle, and they incorporate the Start-Stop system and automatic light and rain sensors.
In addition, the articulated models (7 of the 13 Moventis TCC Pamplona units) are equipped with a new ACS6 control system, specifically designed to minimize skidding, whiplash and blockages typical in cold and rainy climates.
The improvements in the chassis have made it possible to create a 10% wider front aisle between wheel arches and improve the passage area by 15%. The rear doors are sliding type and have a double ramp (automatic and manual) from Masats. These 75 vehicles are also equipped with door and reversing cameras, video surveillance equipment and the Mobileeye 8 connect system, which helps prevent collisions thanks to audible and visual alerts to the driver, and which joins Scania’s lateral radars to offer greater safety to passengers.
