Now there’s a name for the world’s first heavy duty 4×4 off-road bus – the Torsus Praetorian and it has has been awarded a prestigious Red Dot Award in the Product Design 2020 category, for its outstanding design quality. So there!

Torsus, in partnership with Werkemotion – an independent award-winning transportation and industrial design studio – designed the Praetorian 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 Line-X military grade coating on body parts, Praetorian is engineered to take on any terrain, in any conditions, anywhere in the world.

On receiving an award, Vakhtang Dzhukashvili, founder and CEO of Torsus said: “It’s a privilege and an honour for us to be awarded the globally respected and admired Red Dot award, for the outstanding design of our iconic vehicle. We are very proud to accept this award and it is testament to the skilled work of the Torsus team and our design partners at Werkemotion who, together, helped produce the world’s toughest and most capable off-road bus.”

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot added: “The winners of the Red Dot Award have proved that they have created excellent products worthy of winning an award. The products won over the jury not only through their aesthetic, but also thanks to their incomparable functionality. With their designs, the award winners are setting new standards in their industry. I wish to congratulate them most sincerely on their success.”
