Van Hool CX35 Two-door Model
A two-door option on the popular Van Hool CX35 coach was featured at UMA Expo 2018, as the company continues to capitalize on strong demand for the smaller vehicle. Since the product’s debut in early 2015, close to 400 units have been delivered.
Not only does the smaller, more fuel-efficient model enable operators to expand service by adding new passenger applications, it also offers parts interchangeability with the Van Hool CX 45-foot coach. Operators who run both models in their fleets can accrue major savings and reduced parts inventory levels thanks to interchangeable parts.
