Samsung purchases Setra coaches

Posted on December 22, 2009

[IMAGE]Setra1.jpg[/IMAGE]Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd, the South Korean manufacturer of freight and container ships, has opted for the top-class ride comfort of the Setra S 411 HD. The Setra coach will provide rides for visitors touring the company's plant site in Geoje or on sightseeing trips to ship christening ceremonies, and also for the company's business partners on their five-hour transfers to and from Seoul airport.

Samsung has outfitted the new S 411 HD to an exclusive VIP specification and is using for customer care services. The front part of the coach, which is fitted with a level floor, features four pivoting first-class leather seats. In terms of their specification and finish, the seats are comparable to those used on long-haul flights.

In the rear of the bus, travellers can sit together in comfort as a group thanks to seven beige-coloured leather seats. This conference area is surrounded by built-in cupboards made of apple wood veneer. There is also a small integrated bar with refreshment beverages.

The entire cockpit area of the vehicle, which is also fitted with a panoramic camera, is finished in high-quality alcantara leather. The vehicle also features a multimedia system with a satellite antenna and 19-inch monitors, and a 39 kW roof-mounted air-conditioning system.

With a length of 10.16 metres, this smallest member of the new TopClass 400 family is also fitted with a variety of safety systems, among other features, including Front Collision Guard, adaptive cruise control with Active Brake Assist and Lane-Keeping Assist.
