Konsortium E-Mutiara Berhad (E-Mutiara) expands its fleet with 20 units of the first longest Scania K410EB6X2 double-deck coach in Malaysia at 13.5 metre length.

The launch ceremony was witnessed by Guests-of-Honour YB Tuan Anthony Loke Siew Fook, Minister of Transport Malaysia (MOT) and Mr Robert Lejon, Deputy Head of Mission Embassy of Sweden. Ms Heba Eltarifi, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia handed over the coaches to Che Ibrahim Che Ismail (Pak Nik), Executive Chairman of E-Mutiara.


With this latest addition, E-Mutiara will launch their first luxurious express coaches in Malaysia and start another chapter in their long and successful sustainable partnership with Scania.


Gracing this inaugural ceremony was also, Tuan Rospiagos Taha, Director-General of JPJ, Datuk Azlan Shah Al Bakri, Director-General of APAD, PPj Kehormat (PA) Dato’ Sri Haji N.W.Hisham Abdul Wahab, Chairman of APM , Associate Professor Ts. Dr. Wan Mazlina Wan Mohamed, Head Consultancy of MITRANS, Mohamad Suffian Ahmad, Commercial Vehicle Unit Research Officer of MIROS, DSP SH Roslee SH Mohd Norrani, Head of Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Division of IPD Shah Alam, PDRM and Directors and key officials from MOT, JPJ, MIROS, APAD and PDRM.


“E-Mutiara took the bold step to apply for the Scania 13.5 metre double-deck coaches and got the approval from MOT. The impeccable safety and comfort, fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly Scania coaches have always been a plus for E-Mutiara in securing better profitability and sustainability. Now with a longer coach, we are able to increase the passenger capacity and also comfort.” stated Pak Nik.


E-Mutiara also operates the first Scania 14.7 metre single-deck coaches in Malaysia. Upon approval from MOT, the body was built by Marcopolo on top of the Scania chassis and E-Mutiara continues to enjoy the enhanced passenger capacity and fuel-efficiency from the aerodynamics.


The Scania 13.5 metre double-deck coaches offer a 10 percent increase in capacity compared to other luxury coaches in Malaysia resulting in improved operating economy. The energy-efficient powertrains with Opticruise in Eco-mode coupled with Scania fleet management services and maintenance services can make a massive difference – up to 15% improvement in fuel economy.


The front and rear air-suspension provides a comfortable driver and passenger experience. Like all Scania vehicles, EBS with ABS and traction control comes standard, coupled with Retarder as additional braking, taking the wear and tear out of the disc brake pads. The hill hold keeps the coaches on steep stops while the speed limiter helps to maintain a safe drive.


The 360-degree cameras give all-round visibilities eliminating blind spots, with a 3-fire alarm system activated during emergencies.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate E-Mutiara for their continuous belief in Scania’s ability to deliver profitability and sustainability to their operations. I would also like to thank our body-builder partners for their close collaboration with Scania.

Together, E-Mutiara, Scania, Gemilang Coachwork, Truckquip and Sin Hock Leong Coachwork have set the bar high again in terms of smart & safe transport,” said Heba.
