Design Challenges
Working and sharing experiences with a health care company while defining the content of the extreme conditions first aid kit was challenging. Designing the side line of the bus in a stylish and dynamic way at a place where it had always been produced in a conventional way was another challenge. While doing this, we added some very important values for all range of users.
Production Technology

The vehicle was tested in proving ground for accelerated fatigue test in order to simulate 750000 km customer usage.
