Hungarian bus maker Magyar Autóbuszgyártó put its new, almost HUF 50 million Ikarus “V 134” model - the first in the country with a ZF “Ecolife” transmission - on the road in Eger.
The bus was delivered to Agria Volán, a member of state-owned bus association Volán.
Magyar Autóbuszgyártó, which owns the Ikarus brand, well known in Hungary, has rolled 75 Hungarian-designed and Hungarian-built buses out of its base in Budapest since September 2009, said company representative Árpád Liptai. The company has sold all of its buses in Hungary, but it wants to enter markets in the former Soviet Union and the Middle East, he added.
Magyar Autóbuszgyártó's revenue came to HUF 1.7 billion in 2009, he added. (MTI – Econews)
