VDL Futura FHD 12.2 and 12.9 Metre Euro 6 DDI 1 and 3 now Available to Order

Responding to our customer requests for a coach with the flexibility to cover all types of work, we chose to adapt the Futura FHD to DDA 1 and3.

The parametres we worked to were simple:

No loss of style or looks

No loss of coach specification

No loss of luggage capacity

The advantages of the Futura FHD for this conversion were easy to see.  Proven reliability, lightweight construction, ease of maintenance, effortless to drive , excellent fuel consumption and the best residual value in todays market.

All three Moseley companies contributed to the lift system during its development by VDL around 2013, fitted above the rear axle and mounted internally, avoiding road dirt and water ingress.

Bay Travel of Cowdenbeath, a regular customer, have purchased the first vehicle (pictured) and take delivery in March this year.  They have ordered a second vehicle to be delivered later this year.
