Expansion Futura range with FHD2-135

VDL Bus & Coach has expanded the Futura range with a new length version, the FHD2-135. The advantage of this Futura, with a length of 13.5 metres, is the huge luggage space of over 12 m3 and the maximum seating arrangement of 63+1+1. This seating arrangement is unique on 2 axles. Besides the FHD2-135, VDL also offers the FMD2 in the 13.5 metre length.

VDL Futura FHD2-135
The Futura FHD2 is an exceptional coach for first-class travel, from day trips to multi-day trips abroad. This new Futura length version is also ideally suited for long-distance intercity transport. Thanks to a sharp steering angle of 60 degrees, the FHD2-135 is very agile and easy to manoeuvre.

The specifications of the FMD2-135 are as follows:
• Total length:             13,475 mm
• Total width:               2,550 mm
• Total height:              3,700 mm
• Wheelbase:              7,430 mm
• Front overhang:        2,705 mm
• Rear overhang:         3,340 mm
• Interior headroom:    1,940 mm
• Turning circle:           23,480 mm

The FHD2-135 comes standard with a DAF MX-11 271 (271 kW – 370 hp) engine and is optionally available with a DAF MX-11 320 (320 kW – 440 hp) engine. For the coach operator the Futura FMD2 means Profit of Ownership. A low kerb weight, reduced fuel consumption, high passenger capacity, lots of luggage space and a low kilometre price make the Futura FHD1 an extremely profitable investment.
