For the brand fans on the site, a survey was conducted, which would help the company choose the name for the novelty. Of all the options offered, the majority voted for the name Tusker. So, most likely, the serial version will receive it.

From the interior options the car boasts a large display installed on the front panel. Underneath it there is a digital instrument panel and a touchscreen of the infotainment system.

The first is a 1.4-liter turbo diesel engine with a capacity of 90 hp, the second is a 1.6-liter atmospheric power unit generating a power of 123 hp. Both will be combined with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. A mass car will only be produced with a front-wheel drive.
