Setra S 407

The Setra brand marked its attendance at this year's UMA Motorcoach Expo bus trade show in Tampa, Florida (19 - 23 January 2011), by featuring a newly designed touring coach. At the ceremony to unveil the coach, Lothar Holder, Director of Sales for Setra buses and coaches at EvoBus GmbH, said: "With the new ComfortClass S 407, we are now also positioning ourselves in the US business segment, and are offering coach operators a cost-effective alternative which fully meets all of our customers' requirements with the customary high quality standards expected of Setra."

Unlike the Setra TopClass S 417 which makes use of the European design concept, the new Setra ComfortClass S 407 is a classic touring coach based on North American design concepts. Series production of the vehicle is scheduled to begin in April 2011 in the German production plant in Neu-Ulm.

The visual appearance of the new touring coach is characterised by the standard American mirror system, as well as "Made in the USA" front and rear bumpers (EASB: Energy Absorbing Safety Bumper). Whereas at the rear of the vehicle this mechanism is securely bolted to the framework body, the front bumper can be folded down to provide access to the storage area for the spare wheel. A strong framework structure in the front area as well as the bumpers help to absorb any forces generated in the event of the vehicle being involved in a collision - a design which fully complies with American APTA guidelines. Also complying with the corresponding regulations is the rear bumper, which is fitted beneath a rear light system which has been specially designed for the ComfortClass S 407 and features LED technology. From the very moment production commences, a cathodic dip painting process helps to ensure even coating of the metal surfaces and cavities of the entire framework, therefore guaranteeing optimum surface quality and corrosion protection.
