An important differentiator of the O 500 RS Mercedes-Benz bus chassis is its modular design. Advantages of this concept include increased strength, durability and greater interchangeability of parts and components between similar models, which facilitates maintenance and reduces the volume of replacement parts for fleet owners who own vehicles of the same series. The modular concept also provides greater ease and lower cost at the time of bodybuilding.
The O 500 RS chassis brings the proven technology of the Mercedes-Benz OM457 Euro V engines, which guarantee cleaner emissions, durability and profitability for the fleet owner.
Additionally, the O 500 RS has low fuel consumption, as well as long maintenance intervals and a variety of possible fields of application. Safety resulting from the most modern of technologies (ABS, ESP®, AEBS, LDWS) and added comfort in the form of a new display instrument for the driver and level control for passengers make the chassis a strong overall concept.
