Polaris

Pilato - mercedes

A new absolute benchmark

The future is built on sound foundations. The Polaris, the new flagship of Pilato’s Mercedes-Benz fleet, aims to set a new standard in the hearse market.

Where both the design and the technical features are concerned, the Pilato research department focused on new developments that could highlight Mercedes’ cutting-edge qualities and Pilato’s successful tradition. We set ourselves the goal of improving excellence. This was the only way to become a new polar star.

Exterior

The challenge: to boost additional interior roominess without increasing the exterior bulk. When it developed the new Polaris, the Pilato design team set out to emphasise the definition of the volumes: an innovative interpretation of the sides and the roof made it possible to increase the space in both the passenger compartment and the loading bay.

The ample glazed surfaces and the fully glazed tailgate – a distinctive hallmark of Pilato – accentuate the luminosity while compound elements underline the dynamism of the line.

The “shafts” of light on the exterior pillars hark back to the lanterns which are used, simply and poetically, to illuminate funeral corteges, recalling funeral traditions of the past.

A universe of space

Design research must not be limited to a self-serving styling exercise. As a result, the rewriting of the exterior lines of the Polaris made it possible to create a generous amount of interior roominess: the coffin deck is over a metre wide, which simplifies loading operations and makes work easier for operators.

This underlines the vehicle’s conception, which combines refined outfits, reflecting a constant striving for materials, light and colours, with the practicality that is indispensable in a professional vehicle.

A luminous future

The interior design is inspired by the luxurious cabins of private jets or luxury yachts, blending styling and practicality.

The outfits are created by craftsmen with top quality materials that accentuate each magnificent detail.

The unmistakable element on the new Polaris is the split glazing of the side panels, which makes for lightness in the proportions and balance of form. The small window behind the driver’s seat, accentuated by a chrome strip, not only enhances the aesthetics of the side, but also offers the possibility of choosing the graphic design and various lighting and darkening options.

An intelligent and extremely atmospheric lighting system.

The lighting in the funeral compartment has been completely reinvented and comprises a principal source of light, with LED bulbs in the two original lamps positioned on the interior side panels and – on request – a second, more suffused, natural source of light, distributed around the windows, under the ceiling and in the pillars, which can be adjusted for colour and intensity, with separate controls and functions.

The second row of seats was obtained using the original seats of the Station Wagon.

The ergonomically designed and wraparound rear seats retain the same style as the front.

In addition, they can be tipped over to allow the transport of equipment when there are no passengers.
