The Setra name has always stood for high safety standards in bus and coach construction. The LE business models also fulfil the promise behind this claim - tailored to their specific application. Their integrated safety concept includes several active and passive systems that assist the driver in critical situations and minimise the impact of an accident should one occur.
A comprehensive safety concept.
Greater safety in times of COVID‑19.
Daimler Buses offers highly developed air-con technology for your buses and coaches, and is working on further innovations to make driving buses even safer.
The Electronic Braking System (EBS) with Brake Assist (BAS) is standard in the MultiClass, as are the Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control System (ASR). Depending on the registration class, the Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS) is also available for the MultiClass. Modern lighting systems further increase the high protection potential – for example the optional xenon light and the standard daytime running light, which is available in LED technology on request. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is also optionally on board. The high body strength according to ECE-R 66.02 ensures even more passive safety.
Safety thanks to ESP®
The LE business models from the MultiClass are available on request with the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®). It significantly reduces the risk of skidding, for instance, by targeted braking of individual wheels to counteract the bus skidding off the road within physical constraints. Two additional active safety systems are included in the ESP®: the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and traction control (ASR).
High structural rigidity.
With their high structural rigidity as per ECE-R 66.02, the LE business models are ideally prepared to meet current requirements. This is ensured by, for instance, the circumferential strength-optimised ring frames and the use of high-strength steels.
Thanks to a high-strength yet lightweight support structure, the consequences of an accident are reduced. The high structural rigidity is ensured through strength-optimised ring frames, new node elements and optimised column cross-sections.
