The large order also includes a comprehensive service package, confirms Daimler.

According to the German manufacturer, the chassis are produced in its plant located in Sámano, Spain, and they will subsequently be, "…fitted with bodies from either Volgren or Gemilang."

All indications are that the buses are to be used in Sydney, for Transit System’s Region 6 contract area. Only recently did the operator start a trial of four Gemilang-bodied BYD electric buses in that region, as ABC magazine reported recently.
