Minsk Automobile Plant presented four new vehicles in Moscow: a large-class bus with a special lift for wheelchair users, a three-axle tractor, a tractor-trailer consisting of a two-axle semi trailer and an isothermal semi-trailer, and a medium-capacity on-board vehicle. Great interest for consumers is a capacious bus MAZ 231185 for intercity and suburban transportations, which is equipped with a lift for wheelchair users. The novelty can find application on suburban routes in the CIS and some countries of Europe.
The bus can accommodate up to 87 people, and the number of seats and standing places is about the same. So, in the cabin 47 seats are installed, including two folding ones. There is also a separate place for a person in a wheelchair. Another attribute of the barrier-free environment is a special lift for people with physical characteristics. A comfortable microclimate in the cabin will be provided by the air conditioner Eberspaher.

A comfortable microclimate in the cabin will be provided by the air conditioner Eberspaher. MAZ 231185 stands out for its large size for this class: length - 12 meters, width - 2.55 meters. Height slightly exceeds 3 meters. The 18-tonne bus is driven by a German engine from Daimler, which is supplemented by an automatic gearbox from Allison. Speed is electronically limited at 100 km / h
The bus can be equipped with LED optics. It doesn’t only add bright strokes to the exterior, but also has an increased light output with less current consumption, durability and high protection from dust and moisture. “The new bus will increase the position of Minsk Automobile Plant in the segment of vehicles for suburban and intercity communications. It is especially effective on long routes with intensive passenger traffic. In fact, we have created one of the best buses, which has practically no competitors in the ratio of price and quality in the post-Soviet space,” the company noted.
A road train of MAZ-5440S9-520-031 fifth-wheel truck and MAZ-Kupava 930011 semitrailer was also presented at Comtrans-2017. It is designed for international transportation of various long-distance cargoes. The fifth-wheel truck is equipped with a 6-cylinder engine of ecological class Euro-5 with the SCR system (Selective Catalytic Reduction), created by the Yaroslavl Motor Plant. Among the advantages of the engine - improved fuel efficiency, lower heat load, and as a result - higher resource, increased oil change interval.
The truck got a new interior with a more spacious upper berth. A wear-resistant material of beige tones is used for upholstery. Changes also touched the panel, which is made in gray tones: a new panel with an on-board computer of an enlarged diagonal is installed, new deflectors, new buttons are installed. In the central part there is a table with two cupholders and a niche for storing various accessories. Above the windshield there is a sun visor with electric drive, and the driver's door is equipped with a curtain with a mechanical drive.
The truck works in coupling with an isothermal semitrailer MAZ-Kupava 930011 on MAZ-97585 chassis. Its load-carrying capacity makes 26 tons, body volume - 85м3.
Another novelty was the truck tractor MAZ-643029-1420-012 with the wheel arrangement 6x4. It is distinguished by a reinforced rear suspension (26,000 kg). The load on the fifth wheel coupling is 22550 kg, which makes it possible to tow semi-trailers as part of a road train with a gross weight of up to 65 tons. The truck has a Weichai Power WP12.430 engine with 430 hp. The equipment for board as well as for dump semi-trailers is foreseen.
The novelty of Minsk Automobile Plant is the medium-tonnage vehicle MAZ-4381SO with 4x2 wheel arrangement on 245 / 70R19.5 tires. In fact, it is a "delivery truck" designed for working in urban conditions. What's important, it does not get under the system of payments for the Russian system for charging the trucks "Plato", since its total weight is 12 tons. To reduce the time for loading and unloading works on the MAZ-4381SO, a side curtain-type platform with a volume of 38.9 m3 is installed. (The internal length is 6150 mm, which allows to accommodate 14 euro pallets).
The truck has a new YAMZ-534 engine of ecological class Euro-5 with a 6-speed gearbox ZF 6S800TO. A feature of the cabin interior is a sun visor with electric drive. For the driver's comfort, an independent air heater is also installed in the cockpit.
