From June 19th-21st, our commercial partner in Finland, Vehico, participated in the tradeshow BUS 2017 Jyväskylä.
The model exposed was a microbus Mobi City, owned by Korsisaari – one of the main operators across the country.
Mobi City is an ideal vehicle for down town narrow streets. It is very functional, price-contained and reliable.
It features a rear low floor entrance for easy wheelchair access and it is available in two lengths and multiple approved interior layouts. Its capacity is up to 24 seats + 6 standing passengers + driver or 17 seats + 24 standing passengers + driver.
Mobi model is commercialized in multiple versions: school, intercity, low entry or a version with rear and front low entries. Last year, it was INDCAR’s best selling product and the favourite in the North of Europe.
“We needed a vehicle that was small in size and capacity, but also versatile as to cover the wide variety of services we provide. That is why we chose INDCAR’s Strada model on a Sprinter Mercedes- Benz chassis.
We have decided to use INDCAR again in order to expand our minibuses fleet, for its models’ quality, range variety and the provided service.” – Juan Sánchez, CEO of Hispa Bus
The vehicle is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 519 CDI Euro 6 chasis and has a capacity of 19 seats + D.
Born more than 30 years ago to provide passenger transport services, Hispa Bus offers the highest performance, with highly qualified staff and latest generation vehicles, equipped with the maximum security systems and comfort for its clients. Similarly, it is fully committed to respecting the environment, the environmental quality, the sustainable development and professional ethics.
On June 7th we took part in the 13th edition of the Catalan Mobility Day, organized by the local association AMTU.
The event counts every year with prestigious national and international experts. A gathering that offers the opportunity to find out the latest news in order to improve the quality of the mobility infrastructures and the transport service, as well as contribute to a more efficient and sustainable mobility management.
During the event, we presented our new urban minibus Mobi City LowEntry. It is a vehicle of 8.5 meters long and 2.35 wide, with a 29 passenger capacity: 18 seated + 10 standing + 1 PRM. It stands out due to its high accessibility thanks to its two low entries, one in the front and one in the back. The chassis is an Iveco Daily 70C.
The project has been fully customized in close cooperation with the operating company Valldoreix Bus to respond to the needs of the area’s specific requirements. A commitment of INDCAR to innovation in mobility solutions.
“Public transport: urban quality”. This was the motto of the XXIV Urban and Metropolitan Transport National Congress, which took place on June 1st and 2nd in Palma de Mallorca.
We took part in this essential meeting where key issues were dealt in depth for the immediate future of mobility and transport.

Two small and powerful words to express our gratitude to all those who have made the 2017 edition of FIAA possible.
