Lakeside takes another Tourismo

Lakeside takes another Tourismo

A new Euro 6 Tourismo has been delivered to Lakeside Coaches, which is based in Ellesmere, Shropshire and was formed in 1979, from the takeover of Lakeside Minicoaches by John Davies. 

Still headed by the original MD and chairman, the business has continued to grow and now operates 30 vehicles. The latest addition joins a fleet that includes a 2014 Tourismo and 2013 Tourismo, both owned from new. The new vehicle is built to Touring Plus-specification and seats 49 in Luxline upholstery with part leather-fabric. Other features include increased legroom, electronic drop-down 19in monitors, tinted privacy glass, fold-out trays, arm- and foot-rests, and a kitchen and centre toilet. 

The coach is powered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 470, 290kW engine, coupled to a 6-speed ZF Ecolife automatic gearbox.
