First 13-metre VDL Futura FDD2 double-decker delivered to Roland Zemp Carreisen in Switzerland


The first VDL Futura FDD2 with a length of 13 metres was delivered to Roland Zemp Carreisen in Switzerland on 22 July. This variant of the Futura double-decker, with more compact length, offers a spacious seating capacity for up to 84 passengers, and the reduced length makes it highly manoeuvrable. The lightweight modular construction in combination with the fuel-efficient powertrain and aerodynamic shape guarantee low fuel consumption and thus low CO2 emissions. The VDL Futura FDD2 is the ideal coach for those who value Profit of Ownership.

“With the purchase of this new VDL double-decker our entire VDL fleet is now completely up-to-date. We want to offer our passengers the best possible service when they travel with us, and this ultra-luxurious double-decker provides ultimate comfort and safety,” says director Roland Zemp.

The VDL Futura FDD2 travel experience 
The Interior of the Futura FDD2 is characterized by round corners, good workmanship, modern, light colours, lightweight materials and spacious standing heights on the lower and upper decks. The headroom on the lower deck is a surprising 186 cm. It radiates unity and harmony, enhancing the travel experience and providing luxurious travel for passengers headed to a holiday destination or business appointment. A true innovation is the improvement of the driver's upward viewing angle, achieved by sloping the floor of the upper deck upwards at the windscreen. This gives the driver the feeling of having plenty of space and an optimal view.
The VDL Futura FDD2-130 for Roland Zemp Carreisen is optimally outfitted. Safety is paramount, so the vehicle is equipped with the latest safety assistance systems. Passenger and driver comfort are also very important. This double-decker has a spacious 71+1+1 seat layout and luxurious seats. Every seating location has a USB connection. In the lower deck and upper deck there are two video monitors, and there is digital TV and a DVD player. There are also catering facilities and a kitchen. Thanks to the very spaciously arranged interior and the very generous luggage compartment the double-decker offers plenty of room for passengers and their luggage.
