VIDEO: Czech Company Unveils Minibus that Can Float on Water

The amphibious vehicle can also travel at speeds of up to 90 km/h; it will be used for flood rescue operations and recreational tours

Czech company Enjoy Tech Limited is preparing to launch the mass production of its unique amphibious minibuses, which can be used not only for waterway tours and cruises (the video shown here was taken in Slapy), but as an important rescue vehicle during floods. 

Production facilities have been created outside of Prague; manufacturers say that demand is already high from the United Arab Emirates, Russia, and China.

The floating bus is based on the standard Mercedes Sprinter, which has been modified with special software which turns on the marine engine. The bus holds twelve passengers.

Note the prototype’s vanity plate: “Bus Akva 1”!
