A new frontier for the Iveco Bus Crossway: operating within the Arctic Circle in Norway, for Connect Bus Norge AS.

The 13-meter Crossway LE chosen by Connect Bus Norge AS – for traffic missions and school services – are equipped with a 320-hp engine that complies with HVO (hydrogenated vegetable oils) regulations; they can also accommodate up to 47 seated and 26 standing passengers, plus – of course – the driver.

Delivery of the vehicles was supported by local dealer Team Verksted. To date, about 1,000 units of the Crossway are already in service on the roads of the Scandinavian country.
