English   75 years Neoplan

These management changes are followed two years later by the start of a new era in coach design, rung in by the bus specialists at Neoplan. The 1996 IAA sees a new star appearing in the Neoplan range – the Starliner. The luxury coach uniquely combines superlative passenger comfort with groundbreaking bus technology. The futuristic design, the innovative safety concept and the enhanced comfort of the passenger compartment earn unqualified acclaim right down the line. The advanced design rapidly establishes the Starliner as image bearer and flagship of choice for many fleet operators.

As the successor to the Transliner, in 1998 Neoplan presents a new multipurpose series – the Euroliner. The key is the platform concept with standardised modules so that numerous versions can be produced at costs geared toward attractive pricing. CAN bus, a special-steel floor assembly to help prevent corrosion and integral components for front, rear and roof make the Euroliner a worthy member of the Neoplan family.

Sales figures throughout the bus sector are low and the overall market conditions are difficult, so major challenges confront management at Neoplan. The economic situation of the family-owned company is not looking good: the moderate income level – in the mid-nineties profit on sales is running at a shade under one percent – is not enough to balance debit entries in the form of high outlay for research and development into alternative drives, for example, and the high costs inevitably incurred when new models are introduced. The wide range of products, the high proportion of customer-specific special solutions and experimentation into hybrid and electric vehicles, rail buses and hydrogen fuel-cell technology have eaten up the company's financial reserves. The new millennium approaches, and the banks are urging the family to look for a buyer to take over the company.
