MAN and ST Kinetic's (now ST Engineering Land Systems) were the first to introduce the first Euro VI public bus in Singapore, SG2017C, and was launched in a highly publicized event by the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. This was the only unit to use the older Gemilang Mark III bodywork that was normally fitted on Euro V units - all other Euro VI A95s went on to use the newer Gemilang Mark IV bodywork. It was fitted with MAN D2066 LUH-51 diesel engine, and fitted with 6-speed ZF Ecolife 6AP 2000B automatic transmission.

Winning the race against other rivals Alexander Dennis and Volvo to introduce the first Euro VI public bus in Singapore was significant, and arguably was a factor that clinched MAN and ST Kinetics further tender and contracts to deliver a large number of Euro VI single-deck and double-deck buses, thereby becoming the new staple fleet for LTA and its BCM operators.
