The specialized armored vehicle “Novator” manufactured by the company “Ukrainian armor” in a short time became a hit not only in the Armed Forces and special forces units of Ukraine but also abroad.

Numerous testings have confirmed all the claimed specifications of the vehicle.
In recent months, Ukrainian Armored Vehicles has received a large number of requests for the purchase of a civilian version of Novator. In this regard, the company decided to develop such a variant of the popular military vehicle.

The Novator-CV will have a 6.7-liter eight-cylinder turbo diesel with a power output of 300 hp, which will provide 895 N * m of torque. The top speed of 180 km/h.
The vehicle will retain the ability to confidently overcome slopes with an angle of up to 60% and fords deep to 0.7 meters, as well as to move with a back slope of up to 50%, while transporting cargo the compartment carries up to 2 tons.
The all-wheel-drive five-seater will be equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission, air suspension with variable clearance, hydraulic dual brakes with ABS, a powerful shock-proof and moisture-proof electric winch with a length of 30 meters.
In the base trim, the vehicle will keep the night driving system, heated glass and mirrors, sunroof, high-speed automatic fire extinguishing system and engine, central tire inflation system, 220 volt electric inverter, connectors for charging mobile phones and radios, as well as a climate control system for comfortable operation of the vehicle at a temperature of -40 to +50 C.
