Type - Equus has an exceptionally rigid body structure design. The use of crash-durable adhesives in critical areas has increased dynamic torsional rigidity, enabling better ride & handling, increased safety rigidity and reduced Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH).
Materials - Primary
The use of high-strength steel enhances safety, handling, and NVH by creating a more rigid and lightweight body structure.
High tensile steel
