TRIBUS WILL PRESENT ELECTRIC MOVITAS AT BUSWORLD 2019
The Dutch company Tribus will present at Busworld 2019 several new products. Along them the electric city bus Movitas, as well as a low floor Civitas Economy and the TrilfexAIR 2.0 flooring system. The design for the electric Movitas was already in the finals of the prestigious Dutch Automotive Innovation Award.
The compact electric bus is modular build and its length varies between 8.20 and 10.45m. The Movitas contains many sustainable solutions to reduce energy consumption. With features like four wheel steering, a heat pump, well insulated double glazing and a complete low floor, the Movitas is truly built according to the latest technology. The first driving demo will be possible at Busworld 2019.
The second new solution Tribus is presenting at Busworld is the Civitas Economy. This low floor minibus is developed on the base of the new VW Crafter L4H3. The standard configuration accommodates TriflexAIR seats and one wheelchair user which can board the minibus independently by means of a folding ramp. The Civitas Economy has panoramic windows for good view and is accessible through wide metro doors which can be operated by the driver. Special about this conversion is the wheelchair restraint system TriflexAIR; this system is completely integrated in the floor and easy to operate for both driver and passenger. The Civitas Economy is especially designed for public transport and can be driven with driving licence B.
In 2012 Tribus introduced the fully integrated TriflexAIR flooring system. This flooring system makes M1 buses accessible for wheelchair transport and is homologated and available for most European minibuses such as MB Sprinter, VW Crafter, Ford Transit and so on. The new design has a construction of modular base elements and is extremely lightweight. On top a floor cover will be placed for various configurations. The new floor will be designed for dealers for flexible building and will be easy to transport.
Tribus will be in hall 9 at booth 905 during Busworld 2019 from 18 – 23 October.
