The vehicle can be equipped with doors and side rails, and the back can be fitted for a flatbed or cargo box. The back can also include pre-drilled holes for tie-down D-rings.

Specs of the MUV include:

  • Top speed of 75 mph
  • Up to 102 city mile range
  • 77 brake horsepower (bhp)
  • Maximum payload of 300 pounds

The company says the MUV will be available for purchase at an MSRP starting at $23,000.
