Barrier-free travel.

The LE business' modern low-entry concept fulfils important requirements for barrier-free buses. The low-floor front section ensures all passengers enhanced entry comfort, while the high-floor rear area enables a high number of seats.

We take safety seriously.

More safety for passengers and drivers: UN ECE Regulation 118.

The new version of UN ECE Regulation 118.02 requires newly registered buses from summer 2020 to have additional fire test certificates for materials in the interior, engine compartment, and separate heater compartments. Having the greatest possible safety is a core value for Daimler Buses and compliance with the statutory requirements a self-evident duty. Therefore all materials now used in the interior of our buses are being tested, and  where necessary respecified.

The modifications undertaken for plastics are not noticeable to the eye or touch. As part of qualification in accordance with UN ECE Regulation 118.02 the collection of our seat cover materials is also being changed. The only  restriction will be in the variety of colour shades and patterns (designs) available. The quality requirements of Daimler Buses for the textiles of the seat materials in its collection will remain at the existing high level. We would ask you to be aware that the appearance and feel of the materials illustrated on the website may change due to these design optimisations in the interest of safety.

High-level comfort.

The LE business offers a robust, friendly interior with low-maintenance ceiling and side wall covering, as well as the "Setra Transit" standard seat. The seating is designed for the maximum number of seats in overland transport, which significantly contributes to cost optimisation. Minimised vibrations and road noise increase driving comfort.

Maximum comfort.

The optional “Setra Route” touring seats are as ideally suited to excursions as they are to overland services. They feature extremely robust construction and craftsmanship, while ensuring maximum comfort – thanks to their springmounted seat cushions and intuitive operation.

An ergonomic cockpit.

The cockpit of the LE business is spacious and ergonomically optimised. For example, the steering column can be adjusted in terms of height and angle, and the modern central display enables all important information to be read at a glance.

A driver cab with a door.

An optional driver's cab with door and practical bag storage are available optionally for the MultiClass LE business. Depending on requirements, the driver's workspace can be separated from the passenger compartment.

When it comes to seating, the MultiClass is extremely variable. For example, four individual folding seats can be optionally integrated. When folded up, more space is available for strollers or wheelchairs. The folding seats are fitted with lap safety belts.

The choice is yours. Depending on your requirements, you can select a door with a high or low panel (each an option) or for a fully glazed door (as standard). As an alternative to a double-width door, a wide door for entry 2 is available as an option. Of course, all door variants are available with 2- and 3-axle models.

Choose from a range of different destination displays. LED displays are self-luminous systems, offering a highly visible, strong typeface. Liquid crystal displays (LCD) save on space, are durable – and possess an outstanding font contour. Along with the proven Setra destination displays, many other systems can also be integrated.
