Irizar’s new premium luxury coach is securing orders from customers in key global markets

SPAIN Just a few months after introducing its new premium luxury coach, the i8, Irizar has confirmed that the first 100 are now in service with European customers. Student Agency and Lux Express from the Czech Republic and Estonia respectively, Arotrans or Oscar from Poland, Stewarts, Clarkes, Ellisons, Guideline from the UK, Faure and Thermevasion from France, De Wilge from Belgium, Rod Billet from Denmark, Tarsin from Romania, Federico, Liscio, and Canil in Italy, and Esteban Rivas, Agostense, Jesus Abadia, Donato, Autocares Benito, Ramila and Estebanezaja from Spain have all taken deliveries.

The new model has also been well received by European sports teams. Players from West Ham United and Olimpique de Lyon are travelling in i8s while French cycling team AG2R have recently purchased one.

The main reason why this coach is selected by our clients is because they wish to be at the cutting edge as far as their image is concerned and offer their passengers a luxury service that is also unique, safe, modern, personalised and comfortable, says Irizar. The vehicles delivered include fully equipped integrals and on-chassis versions that incorporate a wide range of options and specifications, making each coach unique vehicle for its operator.

The i8 was introduced in Mexico towards the end of November and has generated nearly one thousand orders in a country where all the large operators place their trust in Irizar to cover their high-end service needs. Irizar sees it as the perfect fit due to its design, safety, technology, comfort and reliability.
