SuperNice Express (SuperNice), a brand under the Unimax Group is the first in Malaysia that signed a quotation for a K360IB4x2 Scania coach that comes with Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) consisting of Electronic Braking System (EBS), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Retarder; the optional Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) including a new Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB).
The coach chassis purchase also includes Repair & Maintenance (R&M) contract and Financial Services. All these to assure passengers of all-round safety and peace of mind.
The AEB is a system that uses camera and radar to register what is happening in front of the vehicle. The purpose of the system is, as far as possible, to prevent a collision with the vehicle in front through automatic braking.
The AEB will be a first to be used on a coach in Malaysia and will elevate SuperNice status as the safest express coach service in Malaysia.
The signing ceremony for the order was done on the second day of the Malaysian Commercial Vehicle Expo (MCVE) 2022, right after Unimax Group Chairman, Roy Chew was convinced, on the first day of the event, that taking safety for passengers to a higher level was imperative with the ADAS offering for Scania coaches. With this signing, Supernice solidify itself as a sustainable partner with the first Scania coach with a more comprehensive ADAS.
The signing ceremony for the ADAS was done between Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia and Unimax Group Chairman, Roy Chew.
The R&M contract signing was done by Thor Brenden, Services Director, Scania Southeast Asia and Roy Chew. R&M Contract ensures that the ADAS is maintained by Scania to secure the highest safety standard.
The final signing was for the Scania Financial Services agreement between Anson Phua, Country Manager, Scania Credit (M) Sdn Bhd, and Roy Chew. With Scania Financial Services, SuperNice will also benefit from the flexible financing solutions by Scania Credit Malaysia providing it with predictable cost over the entire lifecycle of the coach.
All three signings were witnessed by Dr Wong Shaw Voon, Chairman of Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) and Stefan Pertz, Organising Chairman of MCVE.
“This growing and active sustainable partnership between Scania and SuperNice has a long history of providing the best for passengers in terms of safety, comfort and reliability.
With ADAS in place, SuperNice will undoubtedly maintain its market position as one of the key players in the Northern region of Peninsular Malaysia and catalyse its growth in the Southern region as well,” stated Heba.
