SgWiki:Definition of bus variant (Poll/Discussion)
Regarding to the previous debate on renaming, please give your opinion on what constitute as a variant below.
Your Opinion Below
I may not be able to convey my thoughts in a better way, but I will do my best to pen down my opinion here.
In my perspective, a variant is a bus that has many distinct characteristics from another bus under the same bus model. This applies to a demonstrator as well.
As I have mentioned in my opinion from the previous debate, the label "Variant" is to differentiate different batches of bus models. Currently, they are already differentiated by bodywork and number of doors on the bus. I do not see why these bus models cannot be fully differentiated by emission. After all, it is also a way of differentiating different batches better. While it may not be visibly seen, emission is also a key aspect of differentiating between batches of buses of the same model as well.
In my opinion, my definition of bus variant I would say that it is an example of MAN ND323F Euro 5 Batch 1, Batch 2, Batch 3, Euro 6 Batch 1, Batch 2, MAN NL323F Euro 5 Batch 1, Batch 2, Batch 3, Euro 6 Batch 1, Scania K230UB Euro 4 Batch 1, Batch 2, Euro 5 Batch 1 and Batch 2.
