Following delivery of 15 PSVAR vehicles during 2019, Weavaway has announced further investment in six more PSVAR-compliant vehicles

After considerable market research Weavaway Travel is investing over £1.4million in six MOBIpeople Explorer-Scania K320 coaches for the coming year. The drive for PSVAR-specification vehicles lead Simon Weaver to review his fleet requirements. The combination of Scania’s known driveline and dealer support plus the proven track record of the MOBIpeople Explorer since its UK launch in 2014 sealed the deal for three new 71-seater and three 59-seater vehicles all fully PSVAR compliant and due for delivery this spring.

General Manager of BASE, Nick Dodgson said: “We are delighted that Simon has decided to invest in our MOBIpeople Explorer product and it represents our largest single Scania order since expanding our chassis range offering. Demand for PSVAR is currently outstripping supply with operators and we are working hard to offer solutions that are robust and financially prudent.”

This investment follows hot on the heels of last summer’s purchase of three brand-new Alexander Dennis Enviro200s with 41 seats feature three-point seatbelts, six DDA compliant Irizar i6S 59-seat integral coaches and six Temsa MD9 integral midi coaches with 34 seats, both models also having a toilet specified.
