Stuttgart / Rottweil – By acquiring the five S 516 HD buses, Hauser GmbH & Co. KG is taking another huge step in the process of systematically modernising its fleet.
The coach company from Rottweil in the Swabian region is completely switching its fleet to the Setra brand. Currently the family business from Baden-Württemberg's oldest town operates 15 Setra buses throughout Europe. The Hauser company, which celebrated its 70th anniversary last year, uses the luxurious three-axle buses exclusively for their own programme and sometimes employs them abroad.
Classified with 5 stars, the S 516 HD buses are fitted with 42 seats, two attendant's seats and a kitchenette in the rear as well as having the latest Daimler Buses safety systems on-board. These include adaptive cruise control 4, which is the world's first system for buses that warns the driver about a collision with moving pedestrians and also automatically initiates partial braking, as well as the turning assistance system Sideguard Assist with person recognition.
