Default OTR of B7R / Globus / Luxura / KingLong

I know the B7R costs around 70+ OTR, what about the likes of the Globus (with a/c) , the Luxura, KingLong and other buses. Also, does any one know how much does a non a/c push back seat Indian bus cost?

Tata Globus is also in the same range 30-45 lakhs and the new Mercedes Benz buses should be around 90 lakhs to 1cr OTR. At this point you really begin to wonder if Volvo is worth the price?

Thanks for the info. yeah , merc buses have been here in india for some time, although very few. GD Goenka school in Delhi have merc buses too!

if merc gets their buses at under 1cr, the B7R will seem pricey!

Spoke to a tata representative. The Globus costs 34-35 lacs in Delhi including Reg/Insurance. Hmmm.. Thats half that of the B7R. and if im not wrong, the B7R returns around 3.2 to 3.5 km to a litre, while the Globus goes 4 to 4.5 ,right?
