Thumbs up The new IBus

HI all...just managed to get a pic of the new IBUS from ashok lelyamd the new low floor that is to hi the market.
Ashok Leyland has launched iBus, its low-floor concept bus at the Auto Expo 2008. Priced at Rs 60 lakh, the iBus is a 1.5-metre low-floor bus, also believed to be the widest vehicle in the country. The iBus employs GPS technology that enables vehicle tracking and displays route information on an LCD screen.

The iBus also provides passenger infotainment with user-friendly message and news. Other features of the iBus include an anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic engine management, and an elegantly designed VIP enclosure, complete with Internet access.
Experts believe that the new low floor buses currently on display could provide commuters with a safer travel option, not just in New Delhi, but everywhere in the country.
The Delhi administration is planning to float tenders for buses to help it tide over the public transportation crisis. Ashok Leyland is expected to bid for the next tender for low-floor buses from the Delhi Transport Corporation. Leyland is also expected to bid for the second and third tender of the DTC for about 3,500 buses.
The Delhi Transport Corporation plans to bring in as many as an 8,000 buses to its fleet before the 2010 Commonwealth Games. This initiative is expected to cost Rs 4000 crore for the Corporation.
Ashok Leyland is gearing up to sell as many as 100-150 iBUSes in the next fiscal.

Looks wise, this bus is very good.

Much better looking than the intra-city Kinglongs running in Mumbai.

Its similar on the likes of Volvo if am not wrong but ofcourse as santhosh had mentioned its packed with other stuff for entertainment. I think Ashok leyland made a late entry into this sector.

Is it their own? They were talking of some collaboration with a Chinese bus company for this iBus.
