CNH Industrial N.V. 's CNHI IVECO BUS brand has started delivering 900 school buses to the government of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The bus models include CityClass, WayClass, SoulClass and SeniorClass. This marks world's largest delivery of school buses enabled with special needs accessibility.
Fitted with a mobile armchair device, buses will be used by public school students of Minas Gerais. The addition of the armchair device will help operators and passengers with reduced mobility, enabling them to travel comfortably.
