A modern throw-back to the off-roader of old, this fresh-faced automaker presents their latest creation.
Independent automaker Travec has today unveiled their Techdrah TTi, a new off-roader that shares the same engine range, AWD and interior with the Darcia Duster. There are no visual similarities however between the affordable Renault-owned Romanian off-roader and the Tecdrah TTi, and to keep its weight to a minimum a steel frame has been mounted to a tubular structure made of aluminum bars, while the body panels are made of ABS plastic, 70% of which is recyclable.
Travec claim the chassis will last 25 years against the weather and the body will not require painting. Depending on the drivetrain and engine, a 1.6-liter petrol or economical 1.5-liter dCi, its weight varies from 990 to 1290kg and the result is a 0-62mph time of 14.9 seconds and top speed of 93mph. Set to hit the German market next year, no announcement has yet been made as to the price.
