Most buses and coaches are built this way, except for some reason US "School Bus" type coaches.
The pass-thru luggage compartments are another advantage from the rear-engined layout. BTW there are already rear-engined schoolies in America, and eventually they might get an increased popularity due to the available space to fit alternative-fuelling systems.
