Rounder, smoother front to reduce injuries and meet EU crash and visibility standards, concealed windscreen wipers and coupling virtually flush with body.
Slimmer and softer but at the same time more dynamic thanks to new angle of side wall and front plus redesigned headlights.
External cameras for a view of the platform. New control panel to EU norm allows drivers to see any children in front of the coupling.
Friendly, inviting interior thanks to spacious, open design with wall-mounted seats. Window tables also serve as grab aids for the elderly. More space for wheelchairs, bicycles, prams and pushchairs. New stop request and intercom unit for disabled persons. Economic, low-maintenance LED interior lights with well-illuminated door zones.
Despite the many innovations, the DT 8.12 is clearly still a member of the familiar fleet.
