With a cabin that can be lifted to 3.5 meters (11.5ft) above the ground, it is designed for security purposes, enabling the driver/security guard to keep a cool head even if things get out of hand.

The vehicle offers the possibility of heightening the cockpit by hydraulics and also bringing the driver’s field of view to a higher level, literally. The driver is still able to keep driving thanks to the electro-hydraulic commands.
