Shaping public transport in many cities with its range of light commercial vehicles, Karsan has its modern factory in Bursa fulfilling overseas orders. Karsan, which signed a long-term cooperation agreement with the municipality of Kharkiv in Ukraine for 500 vehicles in the past months, delivered a total of 150 vehicles, planned for 2021, to the city. 6-meter diesel Jest+ and 8-meter diesel Atak buses started to be actively used in public transport as of the end of 2021.

Speaking on the development, Karsan CEO Okan Baş, said:

“We continue to lead the modern transformation of cities, powered by a vision to be one step ahead in the future of mobility. Our Atak and Jest+ buses are widely used in Europe and neighbouring countries as the most ideal public transport vehicles owing to their size, low carbon emissions and comfort. Looking for the perfect solution, the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv also chose thrifty Karsan buses for its public transportation network. It is a pleasure to contribute to the transformation of the Ukrainian city of Kharhiv with our environmentally friendly and comfortable vehicles.”

Atak Makes a Difference with Its Size, Comfort and Performance

Focusing on maximum efficiency in urban public transportation, Karsan Atak introduces a modern appearance with its brand-new exterior design and LED daytime running lamps while raising the bar further in passenger comfort with its new driver’s cab equipped with cutting-edge technology. Atak reduces maintenance costs with its three-piece front bumper; its tilting chassis, disabled ramp and USB ports and Wi-Fi access also make life easier for passengers. Generating 186 HP power and 680 Nm torque, the 4.5-litre FPT NEF4 turbo diesel engine of the new Atak continues to deliver excellent performance. Featuring the Euro VI emission level, the engine was designed with cutting-edge technology in keeping with the company’s commitment to eco-friendly policies.

Jest+ Offers the Perfect Urban Travel Experience

Offering significant advantages in accident prevention with its hill-start assist and lane keeping support system, Jest+ also stands out with its low-floor design, which is convenient for people with disabilities. Not only does Jest+ bring about a competitive advantage on account of its low maintenance costs; it also copes with the toughest manoeuvres even in a congested traffic in the heart of the city thanks to its low turning radius. Generating 170 HP power and maximum 400 Nm torque, Jest+ continues to deliver excellent performance in all road conditions.
