Date: 06 Apr 2017

After having bagged an order for 500 new next-generation low-floor Urban city buses from the Ivory Coast, Tata Motors recently handed over the first lot of 117 buses to Sotra in Côte d’Ivoire’s economic capital, Abidjan. The buses are being financed under the Exim Bank of India for operation by Sotra – Abidjan Transport Company. 

Built on Tata Motors next-generation HCV (Heavy Commercial Vehicle) bus platform, the Tata LPO 1924 RESLF Abidjan’s next-generation bus has been developed with inputs from Sotra, with a high degree of customisation based on feedback gathered through city trails, over the last couple of months.

Present at the delivery of 117 new buses in Abidjan, was Noel Tata, MD of Tata International & Chairman of Trent and Mukul Manish, Regional Manager (North & West Africa)
