BMC UK is proposing to bring the tried and tested BMC Procity CNG SLF bus to the UK.
To date, over 300 Procity CNG buses are in service in five major cities in Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland and Slovakia.
Phillip Hodgson, BMC UK head of sales said: “The 12m Procity offers superb drive comfort and safety for all passengers with a roomy interior and flexible seating layout. Easy accessibility is achieved through the super low floor design with the option of one, two or three-door entry/exit system to the stepless passenger compartment. A kneeling function is provided for pavement-level passenger boarding. Depending on the number of doors provided, up to 45 passengers can be seated with 46 standing.
The Procity CNG is powered by a Cummins Westpoint ISL Ge320 Turbocharged and CAC engine driving through a ZF 6HP 604C automatic gearbox. ZF front and rear (Portal) axles are used. Phil Hodgson adds: “Only premium components are used in the manufacture of our products which is why over the last few years we have seen such an increase in sales, particularly in Europe, which is fast becoming our largest export market.
“CNG prices are more stable, allow fixed gas supply prices and give lower maintenance costs for your transport needs together with protecting the environment.”
