The Minsk Automobile Plant MAZ plans to increase the export of both cargo and passenger vehicles to neighboring countries. The company also plans to launch production of third-generation passenger buses. The bus passenger compartment and driver's cabin will feature some of the latest technologies. MAZ also uses new approaches to antibacterial treatment. The company presented its first bus with an ultraviolet air cleaner. The high-tech device made in Belarus kills viruses and bacteria within an area of 12 square meters, and does not present any danger to passengers' life and health.
