The ULV prototype has a hybrid powertrain with two electric motors in the front and rear, which improves performance in case of a blast. Its design also allows the installation of additional blast-mitigating kits under the hull for higher threat areas. The vehicle was built using high-strength steels and advanced composite materials, providing lightweight ballistic protection from various dangers. Additionally, it features a newly developed transparent ceramic armor system that keeps the overall weight down.
