Harris Auto has announced that the first 12m Higer integral coach will arrive at its Dublin base this month and that a battery-electric 33/35-seat midicoach from the Chinese manufacturer with a promised range of 300km is also imminent.
Both developments come as Harris, which has a sales and support presence in the UK, says it is “stepping up operations” in its coach and bus division.
Its work with Anadolu Isuzu on the AOS-branded Visigo rear-engined midicoach (pictured), with the first production models arriving in Ireland last month. They are to touring specification with 33 or 37 seats and include models with a rear floor-level toilet.
A further newcomer will be an Iveco Daily-based midicoach called the Crusader. Built in Turkey, the Crusader will seat 33 and have what Harris describes as “a highly-specified interior.”
