This deal is another key milestone in the successful development of IVECO BUS in LATAM
and specifically in Brazil. IVECO BUS was launched in 2014 and offers a complete range of
builtup vehicles and chassis specifically designed for the needs of the Region. The
accessibility device was launched in Brazil in 2016 by IVECO BUS, a brand of CNH Industrial
N.V. (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI). The device works by positioning a seat outside of the vehicle,
allowing passengers with special needs to board and disembark in the seat.
Following the company’s successful Government tender bid, the initial batch of buses was
delivered to the city of Patos de Minas in the Triângulo Mineiro region of Brazil, where they
will be integrated into the existing municipal fleet and used by public school students. "The
concept of the project is based on accessibility for passengers with reduced mobility and
benefits for the operator, a solution obtained through the innovative Mobile Armchair Device",
said Humberto Spinetti, IVECO BUS Director for Latin America. "Our vehicles contribute to
the students' ability to travel comfortably and in an inclusive manner. This allows for greater
transportation capacity for the cities as well as an economically efficient solution. We have
the technology and, above all, the desire to collaborate for a fair and more efficient
transportation," affirmed Spinetti.
The buses supplied to the Minas Gerais State Government will run in both urban and rural
environments and are designed to provide comfort and safety for all students on board and
to provide quality transportation in the state's education network.
