The world is changing, and the mobility of people is becoming more important every day. How can we make the move to more sustainable transport together? Towards more comfort, luxury, profitability and efficiency? And towards new, smart transport solutions that go beyond just delivering buses and coaches?
At VDL Bus & Coach we have a clear vision of the future and are constantly on the move to anticipate emerging trends. We listen to customers’ wishes. Then we develop coaches that are just as unique as their passengers and which meet the needs and demands of the market. Our coaches, made in Western Europe, win over with luxury and comfort and pave the road to greater efficiency, revenue and reliability.
Every situation requires a different approach. That is why we offer customisation and create added value through flexible solutions for specific situations. With this approach we never stop moving and are driven to make a difference for our customers, passengers and drivers every day. We make tomorrow’s difference today.
The Futura is the result of our years of experience and passion. And that can be seen in every detail. Every Futura is tailored optimally to the customer’s wishes. So we make coaches that are suitable not only for luxury long-distance journeys, but also for intercity and scheduled services.
The Futura is efficient, comfortable and contemporary beautiful. A coach that utilises advanced technology to give maximum ‘Profit of Ownership’ by combining economical, environmentally friendly and powerful engines with an exceptionally low unladen weight. Low operational costs and a high capacity make the Futura a profitable long- distance vehicle.
The driveline consists of a highperformance DAF engine, a ZF Traxon gearbox, which is standard in all models and a new rear axle. All contribute to a more efficient fuel consumption and less maintenance costs. With the MX-11 and MX-13 engines, service intervals are enlarged up to 100,000 km. There’s also the option to extend the oil service interval to 200,000 km, particularly for large numbers of kilometres driven per year. The fuel consumption can be optimised even more with the new Predictive Powertrain Control, which is standard for the new models.
The VDL Futura FMD2 offers a surprising number of options. It can be used for group travel, but also for intercity transport and on scheduled services. The floor height of 1,250 mm offers easy access and exit. The optional wide centre door can be fitted with a cassette lift to enable disabled passengers to enter and exit safely. For a vehicle in the multifunctional segment, the luggage space in the Futura FMD2 is exceptionally large. In short, a genuine all-rounder!
The VDL Futura FHD2 is in a class of its own and is our specialist for luxury journeys. From day tours to multi-day trips. Its luxurious execution and finish are impressive. Comfort, safety, technology and design, all the elements are optimally geared to one another and make travel in a Futura FHD2 an extremely pleasant experience.
Like all of VDL’s buses and coaches, the Futura also impresses with an individually adjustable driver’s workplace with an excellent field of view. In combination with an extensive package of assistance systems, this guarantees maximum safety.
With its distinguished, streamlined, modern styling, the VDL Futura FDD2 is the flagship of the high-quality VDL Futura range. With a capacity of up to 96 passengers, this double-decker offers a comfortable and suitable transport solution for both the demanding holiday-maker and the intercity business traveller. Thanks to the special developed upper deck floor, made of lightweight sandwich material, the standing height on the lower deck is no less than 1.86metres. The driver’s enlarged field of view is innovative and created by the upper deck floor that runs at an upward angle towards the windscreen. This creates the impression of ample spaceand makes for an excellent overview.
he entire Futura range is characterised by the high quality of all the components and a driveline that is refined for perfection. All geared together for optimal, efficient operation. In this way we are building on technology that has already proved itself over billions of kilometres.
Close collaboration always starts with a personal meeting. So our experts advise you during the purchase process. This allows you to take maximum advantage of all of our rich knowledge, which goes back for many years. And gives you the certainty that you will get exactly the bus or coach that suits you best. Training courses for your employees, rapid delivery of parts and competent service partners: all these things are obvious to us. Because we know how important it is for you to have confidence in the reliability of your VDL buses and coaches.
