The midibus-sized bus is a head turner

Having signed its brand name under spectacular achievements in Turkey in a brief span of time and having increased its presence abroad, the Isuzu Novociti Life began serving on the roads of the Georgian capital Tbilisi with a €16.9m shipment to the Municipality of Tbilisi in 2019, which marked the largest midibus export in Turkish automotive history.

Outside Turkey, the Isuzu Novociti Life is currently in use in markets such as Poland, Italy, Greece, France, Czechia, Serbia and Spain. Designed as a versatile low-body solution, the Isuzu Novociti Life targets towns with narrow streets with its small-size bus concept rather than large and medium. Its low ground clearance encourages the disadvantaged and the elderly townspeople to participate more in social life. Notable for its appearance like a regular sized bus with midibus dimensions, the Novociti Life is powered by a 186-HP motor producing 680 Nm of torque, which boasts a modern technology complying with Euro 6D standards, ensuring low fuel consumption thanks to its high energy efficiency and satisfying the norm requirements of European town administrations.
