The CNG/LPG version of the B7RLE/8400 is on the cards,and was showcased at the Auto Expo.

The double-decker looks like an old design and judging by the seats,its for the long haul! Maybe if one of these with a snazzier front end is launched here sometime in the future,it would revolutionize expressway travel,as well as maximize profits of the operators!

i think something like 9700 would be logical, even B12B sounds good.personally i would love to see a Neoplan type liners from Volvo.

Both the buses are not suitable yet for the Indian Roads. The city bus travel needs to be improved with 8400. The infrastructure needs to be upgraded.

vestibulles are no no for cities like mumbai, BEST recently retired its fleet which was hardly 10 yrs old. They are low on fuel economy as per what they say.

The double articulated 7500 from Volvo - best suited for BRT systems.
