Modern interior design

Room for more comfort

The interior offers maximum feel-good features: dimmable LED lights in the ceiling create an ambience of natural light. The smart storage of the gas cylinders in the roof offers more space and enhanced comfort for passengers. What is more, the innovative rail mechanism makes the passenger compartment easy to clean and maintain.

Ergonomics on the road

The spacious cockpit offers the driver every comfort while strictly observing ergonomic guidelines. The driver's seat is seamlessly integrated into the overall design and provides the driver with a clear view, thus improving general road safety.
