Harris Group attended the Fleet Transport Bus & Coach Awards 2020 last night and were honoured to have been recognised in multiple categories including Irish Midi Coach (Integrated), Irish Midi Coach (Coachbuilt), and Irish Mini Coach.
The Isuzu AOS Visigo even took home the award Irish Midi Coach of the Year (Integrated), a category sponsored by Close Brothers Commercial Finance.
The Fleet Transport Bus & Coach Awards is the leading awards programme for the Irish road transport and haulage industry and attracts business associates, clients, partners and friends of the industry from all over Ireland. This year, the event was held at The Johnstown Estate, a hotel known for its Georgian splendor and modern-day luxury.
Harris Group also sponsored the awards given to 12 new Fleet Transport Bus & Coach Hall of Fame inductees, acknowledging from 25 to 120 years of service in the industry.
Six Harris Group vehicles were shortlisted across the three categories including the Isuzu AOS Visigo, four from the Crusader Range, and the Higer Super 9XL.
The Isuzu AOS Visigo, ideal for regular service, intercity transportation and excursions, offers the same high level of comfort as a full-size coach to its 39 passengers. Praised by a Design Platinum Award in 2018, the design differentiates itself by its distinctive and aerodynamic outlook, distinguishable parking lights and wide passenger windows.
The Isuzu AOS Visigo tackles all kinds of roads with its 320 HP engine and a fully automatic transmission to offer better traction, energy efficiency and an enhanced driving experience. No matter the type of journey, the spacious 5.5 m3 luggage compartment with automatic luggage doors provides ample cargo room.
The Crusader range of luxury midi coaches is among the newest and most exciting additions to the Harris Group family: unparalleled value for money, unbeatable driver and passenger comfort and fully VAT 71 approved.
The Higer Super 9 XL is Ireland’s best selling 9m rear engine coach. It features a Euro6 engine plus Easy Loading System (ELS) that raises the bus to make loading and off-loading from the docking bay easier and safer.
