 Nissan Diesel Heavy Duty Non-Step Bus
image
A true non-step bus suitable for Japan's aging, welfare-based society. Released in March, 1997, it had center drop front and rear axles, a transversely arranged engine, and an angle drive system. In addition to a version with front and middle doors, a variant with front, middle, and back doors was also released. A step height of just 300 mm and a completely flat aisle enabled totally safe movement inside the vehicle and helped spread its popularity as the first non-step bus in Japan.
