On 4 & 5 November Tribus will exhibit at the German trade fair European Taximesse. At our stand we will show the new Ford E-Transit wheelchair minibus and the Civitas Economy Taxi version. We will also demonstrate the new Passenger Safety Check on the TriflexAIR 2.0 floor system.

Passenger Safety Check system

At our booth D12 in Hall 1, visitors can experience the Passenger Safety Check system. This wireless signalling system checks whether wheelchair and seated passengers are properly secured. A tablet on the dashboard uses simple icons to tell the driver which passengers require attention. As an extra safety check, the red LED strip on the floor lights up when a wheelchair passenger is not properly secured. The demo floor is also equipped with 8 TriflexAIR Seats in different colours, fabrics and options. With the development of TriflexAIR 2.0, we are able to further distinguish our flooring system from the competition. The ultra light construction in combination with the wireless signalling system is unique in the market and confirms our innovative strength.

Civitas Economy Taxi version

At the trade fair we will present a taxi-version of the Civitas Economy that we have created for our German customer Taxi Matthias Müller. This low floor minibus can accommodate 8 passengers + driver and has one wheelchair place. It has a lowered chassis with wide metro doors for super fast boarding. Special about this vehicle is the lay-out which provides room for luggage/ suitcases. The ambience is spacious thanks to the large windows that offer a perfect view to the outdoors for all passengers. The vehicle is based on a Volkswagen Crafter.

Ford E-Transit wheelchair accessible minibus

We will also demonstrate the Ford E-Transit wheelchair minibus that accommodates 7 passengers + driver and up to 2 wheelchair places. The vehicle has a 68 kWh battery pack and a wide range of 250 km (370 WLTP) that easily fits in almost all driving schedules. The sliding door has an electrical step with yellow entry bars.
