Coutard Motors S.A.it to introduce its second bus made in Haiti.
Jean-Paul Coutard is an ambitious, independent thinking entrepreneur who has changed the transport system in Haiti. Without any bank finance, he did not fear to spend his entire resources to fund his dream project-- the first prototype bus made in Haiti. At the age of thirty, following a five-year study and two years of work, he designed the first Haitian Bus Transportation named "La fierté Haitienne" (The Haitian pride). To realize his childhood dream, he accumulated $160,000-- exhausting his entire savings, he even had to borrow from his family and friends. 'The Haitian Pride' is equipped with a 300-hp diesel engine and double chassis. A rear view camera gives the driver a clear view and better control over the bus.
