Some of these models were developed with the co-operation of Dutch-Belgian group DAF - VDL (32,997/52,995 ...) and the German Daimler (42,997). Buses can be equipped with domestically-produced engines as well as engines licensed from Cummins and DAF. Several of these models were awarded either "Best Goods of Bashkortostan," or "100 Best Goods of Russia".


The original shuttle bus, the NefAZ-4208/4951, with a full weight of 9900 kg, was created on the KamAZ-43101/43114 (6x6) chassis with a 220-260 hp Diesel engine KAMAZ-740. It was designed for 29 seats plus two separate places in the driver's cabin, had glazed windows with a metal body with reinforced thermal insulation and a single side door with maximum speed of 85 km/h.
