The previous alloy wheels have been given a miss and now the SUV uses new diamond-cut alloys. The rear-fascia remains more or less the same, it now features a body-coloured bumper which sports a cleaner design. Also, other details such as the beak-shaped tail lamps, tail-gate, and the rear-glass has been forwarded without any significant change.

The SUV's "e-Power" branding suggests that it will use the company's patent hybrid technology. It will employ a 1.2-litre HR12DE three-cylinder petrol which works alongside a 1.5kWh battery pack. The overall system output is 129 PS.

For the uninitiated, the company's e-Power technology mimics functioning of EVs. In more details, its wheels are directly driven by an electric motor which is powered by a battery. The ICE engine in the setup is in fact used as a generator for this battery.
