Third i8 goes into Ellisons

ellisonsThe i8 which made its debut at Irizar UK’s i-Drive event has now started work for Merseyside-based Ellisons.


The 55-seat super-high luxury coach was one of the stars of the show at i-Drive, taken round the Rockingham Motor Speedway track by invited customers, and achieving warm plaudits. The 14-metre tri-axle was particularly praised for the lack of noise.


“There are few vehicles we have bought which we have the confidence to put straight into service, and the i8 Integral is among them,” said Andy Magowan, Managing Director at Ellisons Coaches. “This is our third i8, and these vehicles are still impressing me.


“We are still learning the product, but it is working well in the fleet and meeting the demands of our customers.”


The i8 Integral has most premium features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, multi-function steering wheel, reversing camera and Lane Departure Warning as standard. As a coach with a flat floor throughout, it is almost infinitely customisable to suit much of Ellisons work with sports teams.
