Renault Australia has launched a 12-seat passenger bus based on the on  the Master L3H2 long wheelbase van.

The front-wheel drive Master Bus uses the same Euro 5-compliant engine teamed with 6-speed automated manual transmission that has been available in the van versions since 2012.

"We’ve decided to bring the Master Bus to the Australian market because we recognise the demand for an affordably-priced, high quality, well-equipped, comfortable and spacious bus that requires no compromises by customers or passengers," says Renault Australia model line manager Lyndon Healey.

"Renault has long been a supplier of buses for hotels, schools, aged care and private transport companies across Europe, and we are pleased to be able to offer this product to similar customer groups here in Australia in 2016," he says.

"We have spent 18 months talking to prospective bus customers and refining the product, to ensure it is suitable for Australian driving and loading conditions, and to meet the expectations of the Australian market in terms of features, equipment and price.

"The Master Bus is produced in large numbers in Europe so it is built to a predictable and high level of quality. Significant effort has been put into assembly and quality assurance to ensure a long and trouble-free working life."
