Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant UAZ has presented the experimental passenger models, based on the new commercial vehicle UAZ PROFI.
The new UAZ school bus, designed for the transport of children, is based on the PROFI model. The vehicle is a frame-type bus in two versions: 4×2 and 4×4. The model carries up to 14 passengers. The schools bus meets all the requirements concerning the technical regulations on the safety of transport vehicles, for buses used in the transportation of children. The supplies of the model will begin in 2018, according to plans.
The C-class ambulance (reanimobile), developed on the basis of the new commercial model UAZ PROFI, is intended for the provision of medical emergency services by resuscitation teams and the transport and the monitoring of the patients’ conditions at the prehospital stage. The adaptation of a modular block on the chassis of UAZ is a special feature of the version, which ensures the optimal ergonomics of the cabin for the use of medics.
“The UAZ PROFI model allows us to manufacture the widest range of special vehicles with various modules and superstructures, thus opening new market niches for the UAZ brand” – said the general director of UAZ: Vadim Shvetsov. “We hope that our customers will be able to evaluate the efficiency and the convenience of the customised solutions on the chassis of UAZ PROFI, as of the start of next year.” – he added.
