Torsus, the manufacturer of the Praetorian heavy-duty off-road bus, is intending to shake up the commercial market with the Terrastorm, that it claims is the world’s most capable 4×4 minibus.
Based on the Volkswagen Crafter 4Motion chassis, Torsus has uprated the vehicle to ensure that it will “reach places that other vehicles will not be able to get to.” While it’s yet to reveal specifications, holding those back until its formal launch later this month, the firm’s efforts on the Praetorian suggest the Terrastorm will be suitably rugged.
Torsus Terrastorm: Payload and Capacities
Offered in a variety of configurations, all powered by a Euro 6 compliant diesel engine, it will appeal to people, businesses and organisations that need a dependable, rugged and capable vehicle to transport passengers and teams across demanding terrain – depending on the configuration, it can shift as many as 21 people or a van-full of cargo to and from virtually any location.
Torsus Terrastorm: Who Is Torsus?
The Torsus brand launched just four years ago, in 2016, developing and manufacturing heavy-duty off-road 4×4 buses in a purpose-built factory in Slovakia. It operates and sells in global markets to customers in heavy industry, utility and government service sectors.
Warranty and service back-up is provided in all markets. Working in partnership with MAN and Volkswagen on key chassis and powertrain technology ensures that every Torsus has durability, reliability, serviceability, value and, of course, toughness engineered in.
“At Torsus, we are breaking new ground by designing, developing and manufacturing the world’s toughest off-road buses,” commented Vakhtang Dzhukashvili, founder and CEO of Torsus. “In the all-new Terrastorm, we signal our ambition to set new standards in the heavy-duty 4×4 minibus market across some of the toughest industries known to man. We built Torsus to be a trailblazer and redefine the way people think about commercial vehicles, and the Torsus Terrastorm is the next step on our journey to make this reality.”
