The fully-loaded EXPO models integrate an array of available features and upgrades that reflect the latest trends in graphic applications, high-end interior finishes, and enhanced driver functionality, according to the company's news release.
"Passengers expect and demand a luxury transportation experience today", said Roman Cornell, president/CCO of ABC Companies. "These enhanced models demonstrate a fully-immersive passenger experience with features that can be specified on new equipment, or in some cases, retro-fitted to late model coaches to achieve a major impact on riders and create a truly premium experience."
2023 Van Hool C models expand on upgrades in recent years — ranging from a fully restyled cabin interior with relocated lavatory and upgraded passenger entry to an enlarged driver's area with an integrated digital dash.
New features that top off the list for 2023 are driven by customer requests and include Smart Wheel, Predictive Cruise Control, engine-mounted A/C compressor, a relocated holding tank, and electric radiator fans.
The new 2023 Van Hool CX45 also integrates numerous improvements in both interiors (climate control, seat fabrics) and exterior (body, tires, wheels), as well as electrical and lighting upgrades, as well as electronic leveling control.
Onboard the CX35 are modified contoured parcel racks with 23-inch monitors, seating featuring leather inserts and piping, card tables, and USB outlets. Other features include a 360 exterior view camera system, ViriCiti Telematics System, mirrorless rearview cameras, LED sequencing turn signals, docking, fog lights, and more.
