Finally we get to see the MAGNA bus. It has been testing since long but launch is still imminent. Even PARADISO multi axle bus showcased in 2016 auto show is also no news.

When will TATA get them onto the roads. But if launched, they should only carry the logo of HISPANO rather than TATA. They better get it as a new bus brand.

Magna to me seems like watered down version of Paradiso bus.Paradiso bus was under testing when I read about it few years ago, then only Volvo and Mercedes were offering CBU multi Axel buses. That Tata messed up and Scania entered. Now the market is already saturated, and now Tata comes with Magna. and may be after few decades Paradiso.
