Previous facelifting of the VITOVT range of trolleybuses was undertaken with our participation in 2018. At that time, the vehicles were provided with an expressive modern appearance. The vehicle range was promptly expanded to include shorter 9-meter electric buses intended for Batumi, to 12-meter e-buses for right- and left-hand traffic, and up to 18-meter trolleybuses, electric buses and autonomous trolleybuses supplied to Saint Petersburg and Minsk.
Building upon the success that the revamped vehicle range met at the ex-USSR market, the management of BKM HOLDING Company made a decision to undertake an ad-hoc facelifting for international market.
The most dynamic option was selected from a number of conceptual offers.
To reduce costs, as solution was developed which provided and updated exterior by making modifications only in fenders. Apart from the above, lighting components were aligned with the more advanced vehicle family OLGERD in order to shorten the range of components used.
