Video: GAZ Will Create "anti-virus" Buses And & Nbsp; Will Postpone The Release Of The New "Gazelle"
The Gorky Automobile Plant began the development of new modifications of buses that have protection against various viruses, including COVID-19. The President of the GAZ Group Vadim Sorokin told TASS about this.
- The company's engineers have developed several solutions that have already begun to be tested. Among them are handrails covered with bactericidal paint with silver ions, the function of disinfecting the air in the cabin by recirculating it through filters, non-contact buttons for stop on demand and dispensers with disinfectant liquid.
In addition, ambulances are being modernized to reduce production costs and increase production volumes. GAZ will move from creating vehicles based on all-metal vans to an option where a removable medical module is installed on a bare chassis. According to Sorokin, such superstructures are more durable than ambulances themselves, which operate in extreme conditions, so the modules can be rearranged on new vehicles and used further.
- New "antivirus" buses and ambulances are slated to go into production in the near future due to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of this, the start of the serial production of Gazelle NN will be postponed from the end of 2020 to 2021.
Gazelle NN was presented at Comtrans-2019. The model received a changed appearance of the "Gazelle Next" modification and a completely new interior with a nine-inch multimedia system screen, climate control, eight USB-connectors, a 220-volt outlet, and a set of driver assistance systems.
