Frame platform will remain in place, and this is great, but the weight of the car will have to be reduced due to the use of light-alloy and composite materials.

It is assumed that the dimensions of off-road vehicles will change slightly, and the model will be more than 5,000 mm in length, while the wheelbase, according to foreign experts, will be 2,850 mm.
