Rufat Zeynalov, Director at Azavtobus LLC
- Azavtobus LLC is the representative of the Russian automotive conglomerate GAZ Group in Azerbaijan. At the Road & Traffic 2018 exhibition in Baku, we are presenting two new models of buses of the division ‘Russian Buses’ of GAZ Group - Vector Next and LIAZ 529260.
Both models stand out for kneeling system, and are equipped with special ramps for the convenience of passengers with disabilities. The buses also comply with the Euro 5 standard, aimed at greater environmental protection from harmful emissions. And, of course, both models are equipped with an automatic transmission.
The Vector Next model is a medium-class bus with a capacity of up to 64 passengers, with increased technical and consumer characteristics, improved ergonomics of the driver's workplace, reduced noise in the passenger compartment, and high level of climatic comfort.
LIAZ 529260 is a 12-meter model which is showcased on the open ground in front of Baku Expo Centre; it can simultaneously carry up to 110 passengers. The model is oriented to work on routes with an intensive flow of passengers, for which there are all conditions for landing / disembarking and comfortable following the route.
Buses are very relevant for use in Azerbaijan, and our main goal is to promote these new products on the local market. We would like to hold meetings with representatives of transport structures. The exhibition kicked off briskly; we have already had a number of meetings at the stand with representatives of interested organisations. In addition, our stand was visited by the Minister of Transport, Communications and High Technologies of Azerbaijan; Mr Minister liked our buses, and gave corresponding instructions.
