Thanks to the new range of Innovan bus campers, LMC has been catering to a new target group since last year. And with success, Innovan bus riders have found their way to customers.
However, it is currently difficult for LMC to find enough basic vehicles. Car maker Fiat is also struggling with a global chip shortage. In addition, it has a large order of 5,000 Ducatos for the e-commerce giant Amazon. The result is that many motor home builders, who need basic vehicles more than ever, are still missing out.
So they have to find an alternative way. As we wrote yesterday, the brands of the Erwin Hymer Group, of which LMC is also a part, have found that with Ford. For buyers of a Innovan bus camp In order not to disappoint about the delivery time, LMC has decided to add a fourth variant to the Innovan series. It is based on the Ford Transit Custom.
LMC Innova 590
At 5.98 meters long and 2.06 meters wide, the LMC Innovan 590 is slightly less spacious than the similarly long Innovan based on the Fiat Ducato. We see this especially in the crossover bed, which is 1.88 m long in the slightly narrower Ford Transit. But thanks to the large headroom of 2.08 meters, the sense of space in the LMC Innovan is very convincing again. The limited width also forced LMC to adjust the depth of the kitchen block here and there. The new Innovan model also scores well in terms of payload. A curb weight of only 2,756 kg enables a payload of around 540 kg.
Safety and comfort
In fact, Ford Transit Custom, as befits a modern car, also has a whole range of safety systems on board. They make driving not only safer but also more comfortable. For example, Ford has a lane assistant and ACC cruise control, among other things. Also good is the heating of the windshield with integrated heating wires, which always ensures a clear view. The infotainment system can be easily connected to a smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
It is completely finished
The new LMC Innovan also belongs to the entry-level segment in terms of price. However, the Innovan 590 is equipped with standard equipment. For example, it has frame windows, a panoramic roof, a sunroof and an additional entrance. In the interior, the Innovan has a modern, handle-less design, surfaces with anti-fingerprint coating, soft-close function on all cabinets, LED lighting in the bathroom and much more.
Bodo Diller, brand manager of LMC Caravan GmbH & Co. KG: “A modern, sporty and attractive design, but also comfortable, safe and familiar – that is the Ford Innovan 590, which completes our range of cars for the new model year. We are sure that by having the fourth in group, the fan community will continue to grow and the product segment will continue to have a good start”.
