During the Euro Bus Expo, to be held in Birmingham from 1 to 3 November 2016, VDL Bus & Coach will present the first right-hand drive (RHD) version Futura FDD2 double-decker.

VDL Futura FDD2
With its sophisticated, streamlined, modern design, the VDL Futura FDD2 is the showpiece in the high-end VDL Futura family. With various capacity options, this double-decker offers both the discerning holidaymaker and the intercity business traveller a comfortable and fitting transport solution.
The use of a newly developed upper-deck floor made of lightweight sandwich material has made it possible to achieve a generous 1.86 m of standing height on the lower deck. A true innovation is the improvement of the driver’s upward viewing angle, achieved by sloping the floor of the upper deck upwards at the windscreen. This gives the feeling of having plenty of space and an optimal view. Light weight plus a fuel-efficient powertrain equals financial benefit for the coach operator. The vehicle’s low kerb weight makes it possible to carry more passengers, and a light vehicle consumes less fuel. For the coach operator this means double benefit – more paying passengers and lower fuel costs – resulting in Profit of Ownership.
