Cheer for children

Right from the lowest fixed entry step for easy boarding and alighting, every feature in the Sunshine is designed and tailor-made for children. The interiors in Sunshine come with colourful happy seats, bright fun graphics and large windows for better visibility and ventilation. The parabolic suspension ensures a smooth bump-free ride for those little ones that fall asleep on their way back home after a long day.

Happy parents

From blueprint to production, Sunshine is a bus that prioritises the safety of children – the biggest concern for parents. The semi-integral chassis construction lowers the height of the bus, thereby lowering the centre of gravity. This ensures that the bus remains stable and rock-solid, and is additionally rollover compliant too. Another concern for parents is the health and hygiene of their children. Sunshine addresses this concern with anti-bacterial seats and interiors, providing maximum protection for children. Right from the anti-skid flooring, door open alarm, emergency exits, fire extinguishers, first-aid kits, window guard rails, and tooth guard behind seats, every feature in Sunshine is designed and built to reassure parents about the safety of their children.

Technology brought to play

Sunshine is equipped with i-ALERT, the real-time tracking system for parents and school authorities to remain informed of the bus’s movements and whereabouts. For operators, the system makes maintenance easy, with diagnostic alerts, service reminders and reports on vehicle performance. The i-ALERT system is also equipped for option of reverse parking camera to aid drivers while reversing and parking the vehicle.

For the person in-charge, the driver

Sunshine is designed keeping the safety and comfort of the drivers, as they shoulder the huge responsibility of safely transporting children and staff. Sunshine is equipped with power steering and cable shift for effortless and smooth drivability. The compact Sunshine has the best-in-class turning radius, helping it navigate the everyday challenges of narrow lanes and traffic. The windshield is specially designed for enhanced visibility and reduced blind spot distance in front of the bus. Along with large side views, better passenger door visibility and anti-lock braking system, Sunshine delivers a great deal of ease to the drivers.

Stress-free maintenance

Sunshine is a happy bus for the school authorities too. With an array of industry-first features, Sunshine delivers unmatched value and operating efficiency. With rigorously tested aggregates, Sunshine delivers superior reliability and higher uptime. The anti-drain battery system, rust-free fuel tank, maximized tyre life and fuel efficiency ensures reduced operating and maintenance expenditure.
