Vehicle is a synonym of comfort and safety for passengers and driver
The Volare Five completes in May a year of its launch. Featuring innovative design, it broke important paradigms in the national market and created a new concept in the transportation of people, developed from its inside out with unique standards of comfort, ergonomics, safety, internal mobility and convenience.
Volare Five has given birth to a new segment of the market: the one of compact models. Complete, it is not considered a bus, nor a micro-bus or a van, but an unprecedented concept of light vehicle for the transportation of passengers. It is the result of the combination of strengths of a van and a small bus.
With a reduced size (6,700 mm lenght, 2,740 mm external height, 2,010 mm width, 1,930 mm internal height and1,908 mm internal width), it offers greater internal space and differentiated configurations for much more comfort and safety. It is equipped with Cummins ISF 2.8 engine, 150 hp and 360 Nm torque at 1,500 rpm, five-speed Eaton FSO 4505 C mechanical transmission and hydraulic steering. The model has rear traction, which guarantees better response in steep land or difficult roads. The positioning of the engine in the front allows easy access to the mechanical components and fast maintenance
Tour operators expand fleet with new Volare Five
Less than a year after acquiring the first five units of the Volare Five, Luck Receptivo, in Recife, considered one of the best companies in the tourist segment of Brazil, purchased eight more vehicles of the Executive model. The objective of the operator is to further increase the standards of comfort, safety and agility for its customers on trips through the state of Pernambuco, and the success achieved in this first year was decisive for the expansion of the fleet.
In Guilherme Luck's opinion, director of the operator, the Volare Five is an extremely comfortable vehicle for both passengers and driver, since its drivability is highly praised by them. "Even though it has been released recently, our initial perception was quite positive. Then, what surprised us was its robustness and durability, which makes the operation cheaper, "he explains.
Another company that also renewed its fleet with Volare Five vehicles was LMC Transportes, a reference operator in the charter segment in the Manaus Free Zone, which had purchased four units and recently acquired six more. The purpose of the LMC is to offer its customers a vehicle with differential characteristics and dimensions to meet their needs by providing comfort and agility.
According to Macario Lopes de Carvalho, owner of LMC Transportes, its greatest characteristic is the versatility of the model. "The Volare Five features superior performance and very efficient air-conditioning system. We are very pleased with the acquisition to better meet the needs of our customers, "emphasizes Macario.
Acquisition done through Finame (Funding for Machines and Equipment) with 100% of the amount financed.
Developed to be qualified under the M3 category of Contran, which enables financing through Finame credit lines, Volare Five can be acquired with the option of financing 100% of the value and up to 60 months to pay, which represents an important advantage over all direct competitors.
The Volare Five has three different configurations, varying between 13 and 20 passengers and it also incorporates concepts of automobiles. With total gross weight of five tons, it is framed in the safety requirements for collective public transport vehicles, on the types of buses and micro buses.
Another important differential of the Volare Five is the luggage rack. The model offers up to 1.57 m³ of luggage space in an exclusive separate compartment from the passenger saloon with easy access.
The pantograph door with automatic opening and closing via remote control is another important and fundamental feature of the Volare Five. With greater dimensions, it provides ease of access and convenience. Its first step is only 38 cm above the ground and the interior access staircase is the lowest among all models available in the market (among vans and buses).
The development of the Volare Five started in February 2013. The company, which has always focused on the passenger and the driver for the development of its vehicles, worked on defining these new parameters. With this purpose, the company engineers used the QFD (Quality Function Deployment) tool to determine their characteristics (according to the needs and desires of the transport professionals) and based on the most relevant aspects such as easy access and mobility, large internal dimensions and compact external size. Several users were surveyed to develop this project.
