NISSAN
REAR ENGINE
DIESEL BUS

Model U(L)R-690 Model NU(L)R-690

The NISSAN Rear Engine Diesel Bus is designed for mass transportation at low operating cost. The spacious interior and completely flat floor provide exceptional comfort and convenience. An extremely small turning radius of 7.7 m makes this bus highly maneuverable and as easy to handle as smaller buses. Superb comfort and stability are guaranteed by the improved suspension system. Instruments and controls are conveniently arranged for easy access and safe handling by the driver. Powered by an efficient and powerful, 2-cycle, 125 HP UD3 Diesel engine, this rear engine bus makes steep grades with ease and the rear mounting of the engine adds to its control and stability on rough roads.

High in capacity

Low in operating cost

16:1 CR, 11 qts of oil in the sump, non-blower, nearly seven tons (13,902 lbs), Seventy-two passenger . . .

. . . and top speed of 50 MPH :shock:

125 HP and seven tons. My Aerostar is 130 HP and about two tons, I've towed 2.5T with it and I can't imagine trying to nurse seven tons up a grade with that little HP.

It's astonishing what you can move with gear reductions and time! :D
