Turkish manufacturer Karsan is to deliver 13 12m CNG-powered Citymood buses to the city of Pernik. Working with its Bulgarian distributer Bulbus Trade, Karsan will deliver the buses by the first half of 2021. Muzaffer Arpacıoğlu, Deputy General Director of Karsan Commercial Affairs said: “We are happy to have won the tender with our CNG-powered Citymood buses in the Bulgarian market, where we had already put our foot in the door with our Jest and Atak vehicles. Thanks to the strong relationships we have established with our dealers despite the pandemic and our strict monitoring of the target markets, we steadily continue to receive orders from various cities in Europe and win public transportation tenders. We will continue to reap the fruits of our firm steps and share the news with you.”
The Citymood uses a 7.8-litre CNG engine which produces up to 243 kW of power and a maximum torque figure of 1,300 Nm.
