The touring, urban and regional-service coaches from the 200 series encompass five types – Optimal, International, Rational, Regional and Communal – with various lengths, heights and door configurations. The range even includes special-application coaches, such as export, library, x-ray, and television vehicles, as well as those conceived for prison transport. All in all, between 1976 and 1991, 65 different structural forms are created. This extensive variety of types enables Setra to address the most diverse market requirements both in Germany and abroad.
Over the course of 15 years, a total of 27,680 units are sold throughout Europe. With this series, the standardisation of individual types and construction groups, as well as improved production processes, enable production to be increased to eight buses per day.
