Neoplans Diamond Edition should be treasured

10 October 2023

For years, Neoplan has been renowned for its exclusive and innovative coaches. Over the years, Neoplan has become a cult feeling that you should experience as soon as you step into one of our coaches. For the 20th anniversary of the Neoplan Tourliner, we have created the Diamond Edition, which expresses even more the refined exclusivity that Neoplan stands for," says Sebastian Lindner, responsible for MAN Corporate Communications Bus & Digitalization.

In the past decades, Neoplan has positioned itself as the exclusive coach brand in the industry. The Skyliner double-decker and Cityliner that were introduced about half a century ago were joined by a family member in 2003 with the Tourliner. "The Diamond Edition was designed to celebrate that anniversary, which also took part in the Busworld Awards and can also be experienced on a test drive. There is also a Skyliner and a Cityliner in the Diamond Edition version on the outdoor area. In the near future they will also be equipped with the new, ergonomic digital cockpit into which the intelligent MAN SmartSelect control system has been integrated," indicates Sebastian Lindner.


‘Diamonds are forever’


 “The philosophy behind the Diamond Edition is 'Diamonds are forever', which means that our design was based on an exclusive, elegant, timeless and simultaneously contemporary product. Apart from that, you also treasure and take care of a diamond. From this point of view, we place great emphasis on after-sales, after-sales service, service contracts and offering real solutions," Sebastian Lindner stresses.

Anyone entering a Diamond Edition will immediately experience what Neoplan stands for as soon as they see the front row, fully adjustable leather seats in the Tourliner or Cityliner. Nestle into the Skyliner on the front row at the top and enjoy the wide view, thanks in part to the glass roof. If you prefer things a bit more refined and exclusive, this Skyliner can be fitted with a 'bistro' compartment to pamper the 49 passengers.


The new electronic platform also ensures that the 'Diamond Edition' coaches are equipped with numerous gadgets enhancing safety, driving comfort and efficiency. For example, this coach features a completely new air suspension system that allows the coach to be lowered by about 20 millimetres on highways, which improves aerodynamics.

Furthermore, numerous new or upgraded assistance systems complete the coaches of model year 2024. These include the Emergency Brake Assist EBA+ and the new low-speed collision warning system, the TPMS tyre pressure monitoring system, an Alcolock preparation, Lane Change Support, Lane Keeping and Lane Return Assist, a Turn Assist System that activates automatically at speeds below 30 km/h and also detects nearby movements around the vehicle.

Other features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Traffic Jam Assist that allows the coach to drive along in traffic jams up to 40 km/h but remains activated at speeds up to 60 km/h.
