Because of the DC customization, the number of seats in SVLL connect Scania multiaxle is reduced to 31... It has a 2+1 executive class seat arrangement...

Scania MetroLink 7-Star luxury Bus B11R by DC Design for SVLL (Photos)

At the Scania India plant inauguration in Naraspura near Bangalore, there was one special bus. Designed by India’s most famous car/bus customizer, DC, the MetroLink B11R was nothing like anything the Indian luxury bus segment has seen till date.

So much of wrong information by rushlane website. Its says B11R !! :shock:. The seating capacity is said to be 21 whereas its actually 31 !!

Anyways the good part is, it has lot of photos covering every detail

In the wake of SVLL SCANIA super luxury, media seems to have totally forgotten that this ultra luxurious bus concept was pioneered in India by Bluehill group,Bangalore when they introduced Volvo B9Rs and Mercedes multiaxle buses modified by DC and put them on Bangalore-Chennai route. Earlier the name was superluxurybus which was later changed to 'Olivea'. The routes were also extended viz.Bangalore-Hyderabad,Mysore,Coimbatore ; Delhi to Agra and Delhi to Jaipur etc..

Its not that SVLL's SCANIA superluxury is the first of its kind or that India has never seen till date. In the year 2010 itself Bluehill group pioneered the concept followed by Eagle corporation's CLUB ONE superluxury buses on Mumbai-Rajkot route ( year 2012 ). CLUB ONE also has Volvo B9R models modified by DC design and they are still in service. I guess Olivea has shut down.

So, SVLL is the third of its kind but only first in that it got the SCANIA superluxury model

Great :) Biswajit, I have a hunch that PAI Associates of Belgaum has also gone in for SCANIA multiaxle. Its just a pure intuition. You may know better. What about the reputed SHARMA ?? NATIONAL ?? Are they going in for SCANIAs ??
