TORSUS is now offering passengers of the PRAETORIAN, a heavy-duty, off-road bus, protection from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) with a new adaptive seating option that meets international social distancing guidelines.

Discussions with TORSUS distributors around the world indicated that when much of the global community had to pause, multiple industries such as mining, remained operational but needed to ensure the safety of its staff to and from work sites.

To support these industries TORSUS is proud to introduce the ‘Anti-COVID-19’ social distancing pack for the TORSUS PRAETORIAN. By taking advantage of the vehicle’s modular interior configuration TORSUS engineers have been able to ensure that passengers can be transported safely while social distancing is adhered to.

In the 37-seat capacity bus, the double row seats on each side can be easily removed leaving only a single coach seat on each side. Each seat is then encased in its own protective pod crafted from 3.5mm thick clear plastic, specifically moulded to slot into the now vacant seat rails without causing any damage. When social distancing is no longer required, the bus can be simply reverted to its full capacity interior with no unsightly holes or damage.

The TORSUS PRAETORIAN was designed to transport personnel and equipment safely across the world’s harshest environments. The bus is based on an upgraded heavy-duty MAN chassis and is powered by MAN engines and drivetrain. From the Michelin off-road tyres, to the military grade coating on body parts, PRAETORIAN is engineered to take on any terrain, in any conditions, anywhere in the world.

TORSUS is breaking new ground by designing, developing and manufacturing the world’s toughest off-road buses. In the iconic PRAETORIAN, it makes the world’s most capable heavy-duty off-road bus and the new TERRASTORM signals the brand’s fearless ambition to grow further into the global heavy-duty 4×4 minibus market. The TORSUS brand was released in 2016, developing and manufacturing heavy-duty off-road 4×4 buses in a purpose-built factory in Slovakia.

TORSUS operates and sells in global markets to customers in heavy industry, utility and government service sectors. Warranty and service back-up is provided in all markets with the fastest response times in the sector. Working in partnership with MAN and VW on key chassis and powertrain technology ensures that every TORSUS has ultimate durability, reliability, serviceability, value and, of course, toughness engineered in.
