Shvabe Presented Social Cars in Minsk
The Shvabe holding of the Rostec State Corporation showed cars for people with limited mobility based on LADA in the capital of Belarus.
As guests of honor from the Republic of Belarus the event was attended by Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Protection Valery Kovalkov, head of the main department of financing, accounting and public procurement of the Ministry Natalya Albino Rodriguez, deputy head of the main department of social services and social assistance Nikolai Orel and others.
“In Minsk, we not only talk about the projects of the holding, but also demonstrate their implementation. Creating equally comfortable conditions of movement for all residents is an important task in modern realities. Due to the high cross-country ability and maneuverability, cars for people with limited mobility are perfect for both the city and the countryside,” said Vadim Kalyugin, General Director of Shvabe, a member of the Bureau of the Union of Machine Builders of Russia.
LADA Granta Kub and LADA Niva Kub cars are equipped with everything necessary for comfortable and safe travel of passengers with disabilities. In particular, folding ramps, along which a wheelchair drives into a special platform, where it with a passenger with limited mobility is fixed with seat belts, and only after that the car moves off. It is worth noting that additional heaters are installed in the rear part of the cabin to ensure a comfortable temperature in the cold season.
Four seats are provided for accompanying persons - three of them are in the cabin and one more is next to the driver. One of the seats can be occupied by a second passenger with limited mobility. In this case the wheelchair is folded and placed in the cabin.
Niva will cope with difficult roads in rural areas due to all-wheel drive and reinforced suspension. Granta is perfect for narrow residential quarters.
The production of social cars is carried out by the Shvabe-SpecAuto company, which was formed as part of the holding in 2021. Shvabe-Moscow is responsible for the development and execution of deliveries in Russia and the CIS.
