Buslovers – The 30th Olympic Games will be held in London on July 28th, 2012. King Long-UK said nearly 100 King Long buses would be used in London for transportation and 10 Euro-Star XMQ6127 buses would serve organization committee officials, athletes and referees as franchised service vehicles of Samsung Company, the global partner of the Olympic Games. This makes King Long the only Chinese bus brand to be used in the Olympic Village and the Olympic Venues.
Europe is the region with the strictest certification standards imposed on automotive. In 2005, King Long XMQ6127 passed the test in England and got the first European certification-England VCA and then WVTA in the same year.
Marketing Manager of King Long Europe, Gai Wenhui, told the reporter that the 12m XMQ6127 – crowned as the “Overland First-class” because of its classic appearance, European-style trim and strong power – was the flagship product in England. In 2009, an UK mainstream bus media “Coach and Bus Week” spoke highly of the King Long XMQ6127. source : busworld.org
