Picture of the Week : Introducing the 4×4 TORSUS Terrastorm chassis

21
TORSUS, manufacturer of one of the world’s toughest, heavy-duty off-road vehicles has launched its latest creation for the commercial sector with Terrastorm chassis, a versatile 4×4 all-terrain Flat-frame chassis, ready to carry cargo or be converted into a truck with a Recovery Vehicle flatbed, Dropside or Tipper configuration. The 4×4 Torsus Terrastorm chassis, based on a Volkswagen Crafter/MAN TGE 4Motion chassis, features a EURO 6 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine offered in 130kW/177 hp, mated to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Engineered and manufactured at Torsus’ production plant in Slovakia, the team applied its expert knowledge gained from producing the world’s first production off-road buses, to design a new ultra-tough 4×4 Terrastorm chassis Flat-frame truck. Configurable with either a single or double cab to transport people and cargo to some of the world’s most inhospitable places, the Terrastorm chassis is dependable and pushes the commercial vehicle sector to new limits.
Designed to deliver goods and supplies through unreachable forests or pathless sands, the Terrastorm chassis is a reliable assistant for farms or forestry and the perfect base for further conversion.

  • Mining Sites: Perfect for the repair and service teams who need to be mobile in mining areas. The Terrastorm chassis can carry heavy equipment and people to outlying locations where heavy machinery may need to be maintained or repaired.
  • Agriculture: The Terrastorm chassis will carry feed stock, fertiliser and specialist equipment out to the fields. The Flat-frame makes a versatile platform to build on specialist farming equipment and carry it over the roughest terrain.
  • Tourism: The bare chassis lends itself to converters looking to build the ultimate all-terrain recreational vehicles. A Terrastorm chassis will safely carry the most creative of RV builds to remote corners of the world
  • Emergency Relief: Terrastorm chassis will also be a perfect base for rapid reaction all-terrain emergency services vehicles, be it for Fire Fighting in forested areas or delivering medication to rural communities. The fast reaction vehicle can get aid and support to where it’s most needed.
  • Recovery Trucks: Thanks to the powerful winch and versatile flatbed, the Terrastorm chassis becomes the ultimate recovery truck, rescuing vehicles from sand dunes or swampy areas and towing broken down vehicles to be repaired.
