Mercedes Benz India introduced its 0 500 R/RF 1830 'Luxury intercity coach' in partnership with Sutlej Motors. The chassis is built by Mercedes Benz while Sutlej Motors built the coach body as per Benz specifications and standards. The six-cylinder, turbo charged and intercooled, Euro III-compliant engine delivers 305bhp and a torque of 1200Nm@1400- 1600rpm. The bus comes with pneumatic suspension with a lifting mechanism that allows the chauffeur to raise the height of the coach when road conditions are bad. It also has ABS and a hydraulic retarder which prevents the vehicle from over-accelerating while going downhill. It also comes with a DVD player and two large, retractable LCD screens.
