New Temsa Buses Designed by Pininfarina Launched in Belgium
A new range of Temsa buses with exteriors and interiors designed by Pininfarina has been presented this week at the Busworld exhibition in Kortrijk, Belgium.
Called the “LD” line, and representing the next evolution of Temsa’s Tourmalin and Safari models, the new vehicles are all equipped with Euro 6 engines and have been developed to primarily target intercity and touring segments.
Pininfarina says the new bus designs were tailored to fit the differing operational parameters and cost of ownership criterias of Temsa customers and fleet managers. As a result, the new LD range features a modular chassis and body that can adapted to the varying needs of customers without significantly affecting maintenance costs and durability.
Temsa currently manufactures and distributes buses and coaches with its own brand in both domestic and international markets. Part of the Sabanci Group, a leading Turkish industrial and financial conglomerate, the brand sells its products to 64 countries in addition to Turkey.
In 2012, the company exported 60 per cent of its total bus and coaches production; 90 per cent of total exports went to Western Europe and the US, while the remaining was shipped to Eastern Europe and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries.
