The 180 chassis will be delivered to two separate customers. Major bus and coach bodybuilder Bo Sheng Body has continued its long-term cooperation with Scania by ordering 80 Scania K 400 coach chassis. Bo Sheng Body’s main focus is on the tourist coach segment and delivery of the new chassis has already commenced.

In addition, Taiwan’s leading bus operator U-Bus has ordered 100 Scania K 400 coach chassis. U-Bus has a fleet of some 1,500 buses and operates intercity services as well as tourist coaches and city buses. The new buses will join the company's tourist coach and intercity service fleets.

In recent years, Scania Taiwan has secured orders from several major intercity operators. The increased number of buses and coaches is resuting in greater demand for service. The two new facilities will bring the total number of workshops operated by Scania in Taiwan to 10. In addition to these, there are also two customer-based workshops.
