OTOKAR URBAN MOBILITY
As the market leader in Turkey for the fifth consecutive year, Otokar aims to become one of the key players in the European market. Otokar has invested and developed its engineering capabilities and established its test centre, one of the few facilities of its kind in Turkey and Europe.
Beside its interurban and tourism range, Otokar offers a large City range to meet the needs of each customer all around Europe. With modern, effective, energy-efficient, and environment-friendly vehicles, Otokar aims to contribute to sustainable urban mobility.
Otokar has already proven itself in its own country. Since two years, 900 Otokar Kent buses are serving in Istanbul Municipality. Today, Otokar is continuing this business successfully with the maintenance services offered to the 900 Otokar buses currently in four garages. The availability of these buses is exceeded over 99,07%.
Otokar Kent buses logged a total of 114 million kilometres on May 2015, and total 3100 IETT drivers were trained.
In March 2015, Otokar Europe received a major order for 142 Vectio C RHD vehicles for Malta. The total of the 142 units will be delivered by the end of summer 2015.
It is in this ambitious context that the company is extending its dedicated city portfolio with 3 new products in 2015. One of them, the Kent C 10.8 metres is exhibited today in UITP Milan, with the currently available Kent C 12 metres and the Vectio C 9.2 metres. An Articulated bus and a new length for Vectio C will be presented at Kortrijk for Busworld 2015 exhibition.
The new Kent C 10.8 metres respond to different expectations from our customers, and propose versatility for every type of city roads with its reduced dimensions.
