INNOVATIVE DESIGN

The technologies incorporated in Revolution VLR ensure a cost effective, sustainable transport system. The bodyshell utilises a modular design approach with flush-bonded glazing and powered plug-sliding doors ensuring ease of access. This design approach facilitates reconfiguration to meet specific customer needs and provides multiple vehicle layout options.
