[IMAGE]Scenic.jpg[/IMAGE]Scenic America Charter & Tours took delivery of the first two Setra S 417 luxury motorcoaches from Daimler Buses North America.

The two new Setra S 417 coaches delivered to Scenic America each feature the TopSky, a unique unobstructed view of the sky that creates an open feeling to the coach. The optional rear window also further enhances the feeling of openness, while passengers experience premium Ambiente seating and wood laminate flooring. Power outlets have also been installed throughout to promote passenger productivity and convenience during travel.

Based out of Northern Virginia, Scenic America offers a variety of tours and charters not only on the East Coast but all over the U.S. and Canada. Its fleet of 20 motorcoaches offers a range of seating options including accommodations for 31, 48 and 57 passengers.

"We are always excited to have a new customer join the Setra family because it means we have been able to help another operator realize the value that the Setra will bring to his business," said Tom Chezem, vice president of sales for Daimler Buses North America. "Scenic America has taken delivery of two Setra S 417 luxury coaches that will help them attract high-end clients, while offering the additional value of Daimler's customer support program and unique product features."
