The Mercedes-Benz O 500 chassis are also very economical for bus operators as the electronic motors included in its engine ensure that the bus consumes lower fuel and has a longer life. This brake system provides many advantages, such as increased braking power, higher speed on slopes, less gear shifting, lower maintenance costs, longer life of brake and tire components and fuel economy. Also, there is an anti-lock brake system (ABS) which offers greater safety, because the vehicle remains stable in adverse driving conditions and critical situations. In cases of sudden braking, even on smooth surfaces or rough roads, the ABS system prevents the vehicle from skidding.
