4×4 Off-Road Bus Wins Prestigious Design Award
The Torsus Praetorian has been awarded a prestigious Red Dot Award in the Product Design 2020 category for its outstanding design quality.
Torsus, in partnership with independent transportation and industrial design studio Werkemotion, designed the Praetorian to transport personnel and equipment safely across the world’s harshest environments, the Praetorian is based on an upgraded heavy-duty MAN chassis and is powered by a MAN engine and drivetrain.
It is engineered to take on any terrain, in any conditions, anywhere in the world. It utilises a gamut of heavy-duty features including Michelin off-road tyres as well as Line-X™ military grade coating on body parts.
For more than 60 years, the Red Dot Award has provided a platform for designers and companies to assess good design. Each of the 6,500 products entered into the competition, from 60 countries worldwide, were tested and judged by an expert jury in search of the very best in design and innovation. Over several days, the jurors test all the entries to assess the aesthetic, the materials selected, level of craftsmanship, surface structure, ergonomics and functionality.
