Shown off-road minivan with 29-centimeter ground clearanceJuly 28, 2020
The Czech firm Torsus on Tuesday, July 28, shared details about the new project.
The new car will be an off-road minivan based on the Volkswagen Crafter, with a new plastic body. The role of unpainted linings is not only protection, but also masking of the built-in winch joint with the protective plates of the bottom. The range of engines includes 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engines with an output of 140 and 176 hp. (340 and 410 Nm, respectively). Together with the motors, a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission can function.
The off-road minivan will be offered in two equipment options: TT1 Coach and TT2 Nomad. Both will be equipped with a reinforced chassis, an all-wheel drive system, a rear differential with a lock, a winch with a pulling force of 5.5 tons, as well as a protective coating for the body and 5 mm aluminum plates under the bottom.
All wheels are fitted with BF Goodrich All Terrain T / A KO2 tires. The Torsus Terrastorm’s ground clearance is 290 mm. The salon can accommodate up to 20 people. All seats have a sheet metal frame and 3-point harness. Fabric or eco-leather can be used as upholstery.
It should be emphasized that in order to demonstrate the capabilities of Terrastorm, the Czech company has developed two special vans: the Medicav ambulance and the Cargo version.
In addition, it was recently noted that the French company Renault has introduced the Zoe Van electric minivan. Previously, the car was offered only in a compact hatchback body. The Zoe Van will have two trim levels and will be on sale before the end of the year.
