Always keen to explore new opportunities, and following success with other Higer models, Harris Auto is set to import the first Higer Steeds later this year. Jonathan Welch took one for a drive around the streets of Dublin

The Higer Steed was displayed by Harris Auto at the Busworld exhibition in Brussels, before spending a few days at Harris’ premises to allow prospective customers and interested parties to take a closer look. On the day of my visit, the bus had been on a road trip to showcase it to local dignitaries before being made available to CBW for a test drive. Harris Auto’s Chris Haughton and Patrick Dunne were proud to show off this left-hand drive example, and point out some of its key features before we took it out on the road. It should be stressed that this vehicle was made available due to it having been in Brussels, but does not fully represent the specifications of the initial batch which are due to arrive at Harris’ Dublin premises later this year, this one having been built for eventual use by an operator in Israel.
