The VARTA is equipped with a central tire inflation system. This system provides:
• required air pressure in the tires of the vehicle depending on road surface;
• automatic maintenance of specified air pressure in the tires in case of damage;
• automatic wheel disconnection from the system in case of significant damage when air leakage exceeds the rated compressor performance.
Rubber Run-flat tire will allow continued operation even after a loss of some or all inflation pressure for up to 40 km on off road. Made of three parts, which allows quick mounting without special equipment.
Independent air conditioning and heating system individually designed to ensure a comfortable climate in the cabin at a -40 to +50 °C. All windows and mirrors are heated.
The ergonomic instrument panel has waterproof
and anti shock sensors and switches.
