Fênix / Fire Fighting Concept Vehicle


Metropolitan cities around the world are constantly growing denser and more numerous, posing a challenge for fast emergency response. Fênix (Phoenix in Portuguese) is an electrically-powered Rapid Response Vehicle, designed to meet the needs of fire departments in urban areas by facilitating access to difficult locations and maneuvering easily through traffic, making it possible to arrive first on the scene and take action immediately. The design incorporates the latest technology, special tools and easy access with lightweight, durable and recyclable materials to maximize effectiveness while minimizing impact on the environment.
