THE VOEV BUS II - THE URBAN VEHICLE OF THE EIGHTIES

DER VOEV-BUS II-DAS STADTFAHRZEUG DER ACHTZIGER JAHRE

Hamburg consult, together with the association of public transport operators and the firm falkenried worked on the bus prototype voev-bus 2. The object was to introduce further improvements and avoid the drawbacks of voev-bus 1. Features of the new bus are: different seating arrangement, producing a vehicle which is 250 mm longer, smaller wheels due to the floor being lower, greater availability of seats, and improvements in doors and the driver's cab. The engine gives off less exhaust fumes and is encapsulated to reduce noise, and there is automatic transmission with a hydraulic retarder. The vehicle is simpler to produce, due in particular to the extensive use of adhesion techniques. (TRRL)
