A hallmark of the H3-45 is its sleek aerodynamic shape that makes it up to 12% more fuel efficient.
“The H3-45 is an absolute home run in my mind. They’ve taken what was already great and made it even better. The aerodynamics are amazing and the increased fuel efficiency is a huge benefit. Everything seems to be extremely well thought out,” said Terry Fischer, vice chairman of the ABA Board of directors and president of Transportation Charter Services.
Other advances include an updated driver cockpit with intuitive automotive controls that deliver a more comfortable driving experience. Plus, the streamlined profile makes the coach nearly 50% quieter in the driver area.
“When the driver is working, the driver seat is his office and he spends a lot of time there. Prevost clearly made the H3-45 a much more luxurious, well-appointed office. I know our drivers are going to be excited about this new vehicle because they already feel like rock stars when they’re behind the wheel of an H3-45,” said Steven Brown, vice president of Brown Coach.
Many operators had already heard the buzz about the H3-45 and placed their orders before attending Busworld.
“We’ve owned several H3-45s since 1997. We heard the new H3-45 was coming and placed an order in advance because we’re confident when Prevost makes changes they’re going to be positive. We took delivery of the very first one and our mechanics instantly found lots of things they liked about it. We also found a lot of customer amenities that we thought were nicer and better,” said Jeff Arensdorf, owner of Village Travel.
For operators, the Prevost customer and vehicle support is legendary. Prevost boasts the largest service network in the industry with strategically placed, OEM-owned service centers and more than 160 service providers throughout North America dedicated to the H3-45 and the entire line of coaches.
In addition to the H3-45 introduction at Busworld, Adirondack Trailways, who has been a long-term customer, joined Prevost in its booth to announce a new route from Toronto to Detroit, beginning in March.
The next stops on the H3-45 tour are the Chauffeur Driven Show in Las Vegas, March 5-8 and the OTE in Toronto, April 18.
