Passengers today deserve optimal comfort and a sense of safety over lengthy journeys. Short routes and regularly scheduled services require flexibility and ease of maintenance. It is a challenge for today’s operator to meet these objectives in an environmentally and economically responsible manner, while achieving efficiency and elegance.
The EX concept.
The modern, streamlined interior and exterior reflect the basic features of the EX: efficient and elegant, multifunctional and flexible. The modular concept used for the EX, along with the well-known reliability of Van Hool, make for a vehicle that can be adapted to the specific nature of each form of personal transport, without any compromise in terms of quality, safety or comfort.
To top it all off, the engine, as always, complies with the strictest environmental legislation. Ideally suited for both long journeys and intercity trips and regularly scheduled services.
Research and EXpertise.
The EX was designed and developed at Van Hool’s headquarters in Koningshooikt (Belgium). The design team analysed the needs of the transport sector, listened to its customers and on that basis designed this completely new transport concept. All this combined, naturally, with the tried and tested techniques and technology of Van Hool that is the result of many years’ research and experience.
The EX is manufactured at the state-of-the-art production facility in Skopje (North Macedonia), where the more than 1300 technically skilled, trained and highly motivated local workers have proven their ability in the construction of cars for the demanding American market. The principle of ‘Lean Manufacturing’ applied at the facility means an efficient and economically responsible mode of production.
Updated and innovative elements such as the highly functional dashboard and the seats make for greater comfort and ergonomy for passengers and driver alike. New passenger seats, modular seat formation and on-board toilet provide maximum flexibility. The very low floor ensures efficient flow of passengers in and out of the coach and is optimal for access by persons with limited mobility and for wheelchair users. The doors to the luggage area open at the most compact angle, and it can accommodate an unrivalled large amount of luggage. Just as the streamlined interior respects the needs of passengers, so the Euro 6 engine, already integrated into the coaches of our TX range, is respectful of the environment.
Discover the many EXtras.
Besides the new features developed specially for the EX, there are many other high-quality facilities that have already proven their value in the coaches of our TX range. Like each Van Hool product, the EX has been manufactured in line with the well-known Van Hool values: reliability, quality, functionality.
And extreme efficiency.
