Being a company in an Alpine country, HESS is well aware of the demands that steep and hilly areas place on vehicles. In 1919, in other words about a century ago, HESS produced the first «Car Alpin». Constant further development of the HESS long-distance buses resulted in the LowEntry bus series «SwissAlpin» of today. With its short and especially narrow dimensions it is the perfect solution on challenging terrain. Narrow roads with hairpin bends, steep slopes, bad road surfaces or extreme weather conditions – nothing will get in the way of this climber. With its powerful engine, 22.5” tyres and exceptional manoeuvrability the SwissAlpin is really impressive. In addition, it features outstanding panoramic glazing on the roof of the rear area, which is an optional extra, and highly recommended, especially in areas which are attractive to tourists.
