The East Lancs European was a step entrance single-decker bus body that was built on the Scania L113CRL chassis by East Lancashire Coachbuilders during 1995 and 1996.

A step-entrance design, it was similar in appearance to the low-floor MaxCi on the N113CRL, but had a straight window line as opposed to a stepped/sloped one.


A total of 79 Europeans were built, of which all but five were for companies owned by British Bus subsidiaries. These companies were Luton & District (taking 27), Northumbria Motor Services (20), Midland Fox (14), Clydeside 2000 (eight) and Derby City Transport (five).

The remaining five were sold to Yorkshire Traction.

The European was superseded in late 1996 by the Flyte.
