“The new 3S demonstrates that we can integrate unique design into the natural environment,” explains Paolo Pininfarina, president of the Pininfarina Group. “Working together with LEITNER and their cabin designer SIGMA, we have developed an innovative cabin with a distinctive character that, using elegance and comfort, makes the mountain experience unique”. When boarding, passengers immediately sense upscale quality reflected in the wider and higher entryway, which also reduces boarding and deboarding times. The all-round glazing with panoramic windows provide stunning views during the ride.
The optimum shape for the individual seats was developed in extensive studies. The colors and materials of the seat covers can be customized. This leads to low-maintenance and interchangeability. The cabin offers 28 comfortable seats with exceptional seating comfort as well as standing room for seven passengers.
Numerous innovative designs include exterior lighting as well as the sophisticated interior lighting tailored to the color scheme of the individual customer. The lighting concept was developed in conjunction with Bartenbach Lighting Design. Thus, the styling exudes individuality and creates the desired recognition effect.
Close cooperation with qpunkt, the expert in air conditioning in the automotive sector, resulted in the development of a new climate control concept with continuously variable air volume and improved air flow velocity. This significantly enhances the ride experience.
+ Low air flow velocities
+ Optimum ventilation of the interior
One detail will be especially attractive for ropeway operators using this pioneering cabin technology: just like a Ferrari, each cabin can display the world-famous Pininfarina logo, recognized the world over as a symbol for elegance, exclusiveness and sportiness. This does more than enhance local visibility. For the ropeway operating companies, this also signifies an exciting potential for targeting their services to their customers and their growing demands for style and comfort.
