Castrosua New City

The New City body is Grupo Castrosua’s new bet for urban transportation. It was presented to the national market in the last edition of FIAA and, since then, units of this model are already circulating in different Spanish cities such as Vigo (Galicia) or Gijón (Asturias).

Aware that Busworld constitutes one of the most powerful showcases for the sector, Castrosua Group will present the New City to Europe. It is a body designed to bring important benefits to operators and users and stands out for its great capacity for customization.

The New City retains the character of its exterior design. The entire cabin is illuminated by LED ceiling lights, and can be configured according to needs.

For passengers, it is therefore equipped with a mechanical access ramp for PMR, and can accommodate space for wheelchairs and baby strollers. In addition, the door lighting can emit red flashes during closing to avoid accidents due to entrapment.

Carrocera Castrosua’s production is mainly intended for urban traffic with the New city model, also with the Nelec and suburban with the Castrosua Magnus E, although, through the Carsa brand belonging to the group, it begins to enter the coach segment with the Stellae bodywork.
