    Exterior

    The truck looks pretty much similar to its prototype presented nearly four years ago. It features a smooth surface design with LED lighting strips front and rear. The external panels of the truck, referred to as the "exoskeleton," consist of ultra-hard stainless steel. According to the company, this material minimises dents, long-term corrosion, and damage, and it is also bulletproof.

    The car packs independent adaptive air suspension at each corner, promising a comfortable ride quality. Also part of the kit is a four-wheel steering for improved manoeuvrability.
