New third generation library vehicle concept 

New third generation library vehicle concept is based on the combination of a standard truck chassis and modern element body. The standard cab guarantees ergonomic and comfortable working environment, and the element body energy efficient and versatile space solution. The chassis and body can be switched out separately, taking into account an economic updating schedule.

Library area, with a level floor and straight walls, allow various interior solutions for different uses. Skirt boxes offer multiple storage, transport and accessory compartments. The electrical, energy system, heating and air-conditioning functions of the library section and the chassis are separate.

The cab and library area are connected by a door. At the back of the cab, there’s room for a fridge, microwave oven and a coffee maker. A seat for a third passenger can be installed in the cab.

The vehicle can be equipped to suit different purposes, therefore instead of a library vehicle, one could call it a multipurpose vehicle. The first new models were delivered in 2012.
