The wood-effect floor and USB chargers found on the KLQ6108GQ28E4 together can also be seen on this batch of Higer and with the use of white coloured panel, a better compartment illumination was resulted. Seating arrangement was 2+1 seating and total 73 passengers with 50 standees can be carried by the KLQ6108GQE5 in contrast to the Euro 4 Higer that can accommodate 71 passengers. As no vehicles gross vehicle weight 15 tonnes or above was allowed to pass through Macau-Taipa Bridge (Ponte Governador Nobre de Carvalho), the gross vehicle weight of the KLQ6108GQE5 was amended from 15 tonnes to 14.94 tonnes and reduction of one standee was resulted.
Another batch of 20 Higer KLQ6108GQE5 with same mechanical specification was introduced by Transmac in Sep., 2017 and they were 10.88m in length, 0.2m longer than the KLQ6108GQ28E4.

The total carrying capacity for the second batch of Euro 5 Higer was 65 passengers with 30 seatings offered. The "KING LONG" badge was seen on the nearside of the windscreen starting from this batch of Higer. It should be mentioned that during the delivery of this batch of Higer, the fleet of Transmac was serious damaged during the super typhoon Hato and they were soon entered service after registration process completed to ensure bus service to be resumed normal. Finally, we saw the delivery of the last batch of 15 KLQ6108GQE5 purchased by Transmac in Nov., 2017 and all of them was powered by Weichai engine and entered service in the end of Dec., 2017.
Transmac mainly assigned the Higer KLQ6108GQ, especially the Euro 5 version KLQ6108GQE5 on trunk service via Macau-Taipa Bridge with high patronage such as 25, 25B, 26A and 33 which cannot deploy buses with higher capacity due to the imposed of gross vehicle weight limitation for the Bridge.
