Scania celebrates its 50th chassis order from BASE Coach Sales

Scania is celebrating its 50th order from Leyland, Lancashire-based BASE Coach Sales for a Scania K-series 4×2 chassis to be equipped with a MOBIpeople Explorer body.  

Scania and BASE Coach Sales began collaborating on sales of the Explorer product in 2018, since when a total of 19 UK customers have taken advantage of the high carrying capacity offered by the vehicle. 

The Scania K-series chassis taken by BASE Coach Sales feature Scania’s 9-litre Euro 6 engine with power outputs of either 320 or 360 horsepower driving through either ZF’s automatic gearbox or Scania’s Opticruise gearbox.  The latest two orders from BASE are for new generation Scania chassis.  

The MOBIpeople Explorer bodywork can accommodate up to 74 passengers in a 3+2 seating configuration and can be specified in a variety of wheelchair lift and carrying options. 

“We are delighted to be celebrating this 50th chassis order from BASE Coach Sales,” comments Martin West, Sales Director – Bus and Coach for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.  

“With the high carrying capacity MOBIpeople Explorer, BASE does an excellent job in serving a specialised niche within our sector.  On behalf of Scania Bus and Coach I congratulate the BASE Coach Sales team on their achievements and look forward to continuing to work with them long into the future.”

Nick Dodgson, General Manager at BASE Coach Sales, says: “The addition of having another quality European chassis option for our clients has been well received from launch at the NEC.  Scania’s strong client relationships and great after-sales support has impressed us and opened our product line to new niche sectors”.
