KANZACC Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Osaka-shi; President: Hisakazu Ishibashi; "the Company"), a member of the Furukawa Electric Group, has developed and completed the prototype for an indoor-use vehicle. Named "B.PHOENIX," the vehicle was developed as part of a study into its use for moving around inside facilities such as nursing homes or factories based on the concept of being easy to ride in a standing position indoors. The aim is to sell the vehicles for personal use by the end of the year.
The solutions offered by the Company are referred to as KANZACC-DYNAMIC, with dozens of new items produced in the three years since full-scale development of the new product range began. The development of the product range has been made possible by a combination of technological innovation and highly specialized world-class engineering, based on complex technologies to achieve higher performance.
- It has a practical, user-friendly design that allows it to be ridden easily in a standing position by users across a wide range of ages.
- It is equipped with the Company’s new fiber electric cables. These are stronger and lighter than copper electric cables of the same diameter, as well as being resistant to twisting, resulting in a strengthened electrical system.
