Jul 05, 2006

The Mercedes-Benz Bus and Coach ushered in a new era in 1999 by launching the Travego touring coach, offered an unprecedented blend of technology, high levels of attractive looks and leading-edge Now, at the height of its career, the first-generation Mercedes-Benz Travego is way for a new Travego which raises the once again, taking the preceding model as a basis yet it in every major respect. The new Travego sets new standards in the touring coach segment, not in terms of safety and comfort for and driver but also in terms of its its equipment and its new, economical and compatible Euro 4 engines.

high-deck touring coaches in the for Western Europe

The new Mercedes-Benz line-up features three touring coaches: the Travego 15 rows of seats, 12.14 in length and two axles), the Travego M 16 rows of seats, 12.96 in length and three axles) and the L (max. 17 rows of seats, metres in length and three All three versions have an height of 3.71 metres.

more dynamic form and

While the new Mercedes-Benz Travego has a affinity with the preceding its lines show a clear and refinement. The new model is elegant and at the time masculine and progressive in For example the face of the coach the familiar deep and inviting is now more sculpted, while the new panel with air intake a three-dimensional appearance, has a curved edge and is visually more All this, together the Mercedes proudly displayed on a sculpted makes the front-end design of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car. The new and variable-focus reflector headlamps clear polycarbonate lenses a prominent kink, while the are now integrated in the all-glass housing. The bumper and the stylistic integration of the fog emphasise the dynamism at the heart of the new coach.

Powerful character

The side view of the new Travego has been given new emphasis. Now more prominent than the three-dimensional character line by the B-pillar grows powerfully out of the body. At its lower end, it dynamically around into the entrance door, where a element forms a visual between the front and side of the At its upper end, the B-pillar back elegantly above the two side windows without the pas-sengers’ view in the slightest, seamlessly merging into the panel of the fluently integrated air conditioning system. Its panelling round the roof edge and smoothly into the side

To give passengers in the new Travego’s row of seats a better view, the edges of the rear side are now steeper and sturdier-looking, rather rounded as previously. The new LED side lights are designed to last the of the vehicle, with no bulbs to These enhancements make the new Travego appear more but also more elegant, as as ensuring stylistic unity. also ensure an evolutionary of the design language of the previous

New-look rear section distinctive tail lights

The end of the Travego too has been enhanced in key areas. Particularly noticeable are the three-dimensional tail lights wrap round into the of the vehicle. Each unit has integrated, light-coloured covers for the and the reversing lights. Here the appearance is reminiscent of a Mercedes-Benz car, due to the use of typical Mercedes-Benz themes. Passive lighting link the tail lights the now flat engine compartment whose upper section a newly designed ventilation As well as looking good, the is effective at preventing dirt or from entering the engine Moving further upwards, new in the rear wall echo the of the ventilation grille, and break up the of the surface.

In the rear window, the enlarged star is now more prominent and upwards into the glass The engine compartment flap, wall and corners of the bumper are powerfully curved at the sides. the second-generation Travego has a harmonious exudes typical Mercedes-Benz and is easily recognisable.

Like its the new Travego high-deck touring has a body incorporating tried-and-tested stretching across the roof and the sides, thus creating the for maximum strength and safety. modifications have been on the left-hand side where the (15 RHD) and Travego M (16 RHD) now have two instead of three compartment flaps to make the life easier. The Travego L (17 now has three instead of four Behind the luggage compartment which are equipped with a mechanism, the Travego and Travego M offer 8.4 m³ of luggage between the axles, whilst the L model provides 11.0 assuming that an on-board is fitted in each case.

front end benefits drivers, guide and passengers

Although the length remains unchanged, the end of the new Travego has been extended by 140 mm to extra space for the driver and the guide as well as a wider for the passengers. At the same time, the were able to increase the of approach so as to ensure improved and manoeuvrability.

Reduced weight increased length

Even the overall length has been slightly to 12.14 m (Travego), m (Travego M) and 13.99 m (Travego L), and the measures implemented to ensure with the Euro 4 emissions the new Travego weighs substantially than its predecessor. Even on specified vehicles, this weight margin allows a (15 RHD) with six-cylinder engine and on-board toilet to be as a three-star version with for 49 passengers, not including the driver and guide. The three-star version of the M offers seating for 53 passengers.

The reduction is due to a whole raft of The new luggage compartment floor weighs 40 kg less thanks to its sandwich construction. Further measures, to name but a few, the optimised roof frame, the of the driver’s door, an optimised air system and the use of flat-screen displays of tube-type monitors for the video As well as a high passenger in the maximum-seating versions of the Travego (49 Travego M (53 persons) and Travego L (57 in each case not including the and tour guide, the reduced weight permits a higher capacity, along with fuel consumption relative to In terms of economic efficiency, the Travego has therefore gained on two

Exemplary safety equipment Continuous Braking Limiter

Whilst the Mercedes-Benz Travego has provided an exemplary level of the new Travego marks another step forwards. The extensive equipment package now includes the Braking Limiter (DBL) a system which makes considerably easier for the driver by the vehicle from accelerating the speed limit when downhill. At first the coach is automatically by the retarder, then a signal has warned the driver to action by the service brakes, preventing the vehicle from statutory speed limits on motorway descents, for example. the cooling power of the engine has increased to ensure better of the heat energy generated by and, therefore, extremely retarder operation during periods of braking.

Numerous systems including ESP as standard

The standard-fitted safety equipment of the Travego also features the fade-resistant braking system disc brakes all round, the Braking System (EBS), Assist (BA), acceleration control (ASR), the retarder perhaps most importantly of the Electronic Stability Program The standard-fitted Voith retarder can be via a six-stage steering column (standard). However, to reduce brake wear, the retarder function also allows the to be activated via the foot brake Within the bounds of physical ESP helps to keep the vehicle on track in critical driving by applying precisely controlled pressure at the individual wheels and the engine power.

Large H7 headlamps with a high output are also standard. Litronic gas discharge headlamps, to the xenon headlamps used on are available as an option. Other features include fog lamps, a efficient system of mirrors excellent all-round visibility, the skeleton with reinforcements across the roof and down the and passenger seats with surfaces on the backrests. All this is as an integral part of the new Mercedes-Benz as the comfort and safety-oriented chassis and

New, optionally available systems: Proximity Control and Assistant

Available as an option for the new for the first time, the Proximity system (ART) automatically a pre-programmed safe following from vehicles in front. For if the coach starts to approach a vehicle ahead or if a slower-moving cuts across in front of the the retarder and service brakes are automatically to slow the coach and re-establish the preset safe distance. The deceleration is limited to 20 % of the available braking power. there is no longer an obstruction, the is automatically accelerated back up to the previously set using the cruise function. Although the proximity system is primarily de-signed to drivers in motorway traffic, it is helpful on other extra-urban and, since it is effective a speed of 15 km/h, in towns.

A further option, the Lane system (SPA), is now available for all new models. A camera system the lane markings and detects there is a danger of the vehicle its lane. If this happens, the side of the driver’s seat to vibrate in order to warn the

Further enhanced driver’s

The developers have also several aspects of the Travego For instance, the front end has been by 140 mm to give the driver more and provide an extended driver’s adjustment range. Furthermore, is now space for a large bag behind the seat. On the left-hand side, the multi-compartment driver’s locker has redesigned. And the parking brake has been moved to a new, position. A further plus is the joystick shift lever and the Servoshift system, which the driver to change gear more smoothly and precisely before.

The already exemplary, design of the instrument panel in the model has been further upon in the new Travego. Now a soft which is pleasant to the touch the surface of the instrument panel the previous monochrome display in the cluster has been replaced by a high-contrast and easy-to-read colour on the instrument cluster.

The driver can the sunblind to the ideal position for without impairing the view of the on the right-hand side of the bus to any great As an option, both sunblinds can be electrically at the push of a button. A windscreen is also available as an

New lighting concept and new service in the passenger compartment

Upon the coach, passengers are immediately met by the brand lettering which, the Travego lettering, is to be found on the left and right above the and tour guide’s seats. one of the main aims is to make on board the Travego feel at generous dimensions have maintained, with an exterior of 2.55 m, generous standing of 2.10 m and, as a result, an and spacious feeling. Differences will notice on board the new include the modified service beneath the air ducts, whose results in a more integrated The control but-tons, now including inductive switches for the reading and service call function, are now integrated right next to the lights. Each of the adjustable air is controlled by a thumbwheel.

Another new is the lighting concept for the Travego compartment, now centred around fluorescent tubes running the luggage racks. The tubes two light settings and are of particular to coach operators as they an extremely long service The discreet ambient lighting, new, includes offset for anti-glare illumination of the centre below seat level. passengers occupying the rearmost row in the new Travego enjoy a better as the side windows no longer a rounded rear edge instead, extend back as far as the pillar.

Footrests now part of the equipment package

Apart a new fabric collection, the tried-and-tested seating remains unchanged. the comfortable Travel-Star Xtra seats, fitted as standard, now include footrests as well as new seam patterns. To individualise the Travego, coach operators can from 20 colours for the velour on the central ceiling strip and walls alone. They have a choice of five coverings and numerous leather and seat covers. Both and equipment lines available for the model Flair (standard) and (optional) have been In the new Travego models, the Flair and equipment line now includes wood trim inserts in the handles, the side panels of the and the instrument panel than on the models.

Maximum air conditioning increased to 39 kW

In particularly hot regions, on board the Travego will the benefit of a more powerful air conditioning system. The most of the systems available now has a maximum capacity of 39 kW. Further new developments an air conditioning system with a output of 35 kW. Both new systems eight evaporator fans to a high airflow rate. therefore now have the choice of an air system with a cooling of 32 kW, 35 kW or 39 kW, depending on where the coach is to be put service. Features the new model with its predecessor include the hot water convector heater, the option of axial fans for output.


The general upgrading of the Travego extends to the robust luggage floor covering and the luggage flaps which are now lined on the Next to the centre door is a multipurpose area which can be from the centre entrance by pulling back a retractable and serves either as an additional compartment or as the basis for the optionally driver’s rest area. locking for the doors and flaps is of the standard specification, with remote control for the luggage flaps. Optionally, an extended locking system which closes and locks the roof and the driver’s window is available.

and economical thanks to future-compatible technology

The Travego engines are and eco-friendly. For the launch of the new model, the Bus and Coach unit has opted for low-emission and economical Euro 4 featuring the new BlueTec diesel based on SCR (Selective Catalytic BlueTec has been providing service in the Mercedes-Benz Actros truck range since the of 2005. More than such vehicles have been sold the vast of them with Euro 5

The new BlueTec diesel technology is on the injection of an aqueous urea („AdBlue”) into the exhaust Nitrogen oxides are converted harmless atmospheric nitrogen and vapour in a downstream catalytic The new technology enables nitrogen emissions to be reduced by up to 30 % in the case of a 4 engine and, in the future, by as as 60 % if a Euro 5 powerplant is fitted. A side effect, thanks to the combustion, is up to 80 % reduced particulate compared to a Euro 3 engine a argument given the current about fine particles in emissions.

Euro 4 with reduces fuel consumption

has decisive advantages over emission control systems, them lower fuel a system designed to last the of the powertrain and an increase in maintenance from 60,000 km to 90,000 km. On economy, savings over Euro 3 vehicles of up to 6 percent are achieved. Ad-Blue consumption, obviously also has to be taken account, works out in the case of at between 3 and 5 percent of diesel

Using BlueTec on the new Travego not be easier. Beneath a flap, next to the diesel filler is a second, separate filler for AdBlue. The risk of confusion refuelling is prevented by the different of the filler necks and by an automatic device. Depending on the coach the separate AdBlue tank 61 litres (Travego) or 47.5 (Travego M and Travego L) enough for of miles of driving. The oil industry is putting in place a comprehensive supply network in Europe. Of companies can also choose to up with AdBlue at their own stations or workshops. AdBlue can supply the fluid in various sizes for this purpose.

In of persistently high fuel the importance of the economical performance of the with BlueTec diesel installed in the Travego cannot be Thanks to very low diesel and the large fuel tank of 490 litres (Travego) or 475 litres M and Travego L), the Travego can cover distances without the need for and time-consuming fuel stops. To weight, the tank housings are from plastic.

New base with 315 kW (428 hp) and substantially torque

To prepare for the imminent of the Euro 4 emissions standard, the line-up for the new Mercedes-Benz Travego has revised and enhanced significantly. As the range includes the OM 457 LA six-cylinder engine with a displacement of litres and the V8 powerplant from the OM 502 LA However, the previous entry-level the 260 kW (354 hp) version of the OM 457 LA, has been by the next most powerful which offers a significant in performance.

The new base engine for the develops 315 kW (428 hp). more important than the in rated output is the substantial in torque. Instead of 1900 Nm, the powerplant now delivers an impressive torque of 2100 Nm. Thanks to new, powerful base the performance of the Mercedes-Benz Travego than lives up to the expectations by its highly dynamic appearance, all conditions.

The top-of-the-range OM 502 LA V8 engine an unchanged displacement of 15.9 and output of 350 kW (476 hp) also has a torque of 2100 Nm. This is available as an option for the three-axle M and Travego L.

Smoother and more gear changes with

All of the engines have their air on the left above the drive in a zone located well from where the dirt is up by the rear wheels. This that the air cleaners have a service life. In all models, the transmission is the Mercedes-Benz GO 210 six-speed transmission which, as before, is by a joystick mounted on the instrument Thanks to the enhanced Servoshift this transmission now ensures smoother and more precise changes than before. the Travego can be specified with the ZF automated manual transmission 12 forward speeds. Like the model, the new Travego is fitted the tried-and-tested Mercedes-Benz HO6 drive

Less complex electronics

The new Travego features an enhanced system that is again on the successful programmable control Even though the number of modules has been cut from six to in order to reduce the complexity of the functionality has been extended.

The Bus and Coach unit decided to use a electronic control unit fuses and relays for numerous and convenience systems on board the new including the sunblinds, power audio/video systems and the galley. The were to allow easy throughout Europe and neighbouring as well as to facilitate retrofits. By way of it is now possible to fit a trailer coupling a socket without having to about downloading extra as was previously the case. All in all, the of the programmable control system and electronic control proves to be an practical solution.

Ho?dere is one of the world’s most sophisticated bus and plants

The new Mercedes-Benz Travego is in Turkey, at the DaimlerChrysler AG plant in near the metropolis of Istanbul. is also where, alongside Mercedes-Benz buses and coaches, the Tourismo high-deck touring has been produced for the past ten More than 12,000 have rolled off the production here since 1995, a to this touring coach’s

DaimlerChrysler has been producing and coaches in Turkey since It all began with the legendary Benz O 302, which is remembered fondly by many and drivers.

Since 1968, the has produced some 45,000 and coaches in Turkey, many of were also successfully to Western Europe. Examples the Mercedes-Benz Tourismo touring and the Mercedes-Benz Conecto regular-service By establishing a foothold in Turkey at a early stage, DaimlerChrysler was to accompany the country on its rise to a full-scale player in the automotive Turkey is a fast-developing economy around 70 million inhabitants and now an annual production volume of one million passenger cars, trucks, buses and coaches. two thirds of these vehicles are mostly to Europe.

Since 2005, the Mercedes-Benz Bus and Coach has also been producing two versions of the new Travego the Travego 15 SHD and the 17 SHD to meet the specific needs and of the Turkish market. These touring coaches are 12.0 and 13.85 metres in length have an overall height of metres and are equipped with the Euro 3 engines which installed in the predecessor model, in with the requirements of the Turkish Some 950 units of the SHD version of the new have already been in Turkey to date. On a visual the main differences between the and the Travego RHD are the larger luggage flaps, a higher front and a shorter front end.

corrosion protection thanks to new dip-priming facility

For production of the new Travego, DaimlerChrysler comprehensively and extended the Ho?dere plant, with an official re-opening in 2005. At the heart of the plant is the erected cathodic dip-priming which ensures the best corrosion protection. The new facility, incorporates the company’s experience the cathodic dip-priming installation at the plant, ensures ideal protection for the vehicle body. is also a new body shop

A total of around € 75 was invested in the modernisation and extension of the plant, which was initially in 1995. Thanks to identical and, not least, a highly workforce, the production and quality here are every bit as high as at the DaimlerChrysler plants. Every who buys a Travego can therefore be that they are getting an high-quality coach which have an extremely long life and will hold its extremely well.

Added at no extra cost

Thanks to the product enhancements, the Mercedes-Benz Bus and unit is planning to produce 450 units of the new Mercedes-Benz Travego touring coach per year, stagnant markets in Western This production volume is on a par that of the outgoing model. The are already rolling in. Nine new coaches were recently to a consortium of three German to carry the teams taking in the World Cup.
