Bogdan Corporation has started producing multipurpose KUNG vehicles (standardized military vehicle) at an automobile plant in Cherkasy.
The corporation said in a press release on Tuesday that this would help the company to diversify risks related to the absence of passenger car production at the plant linked to the collapse of the automobile market in Ukraine.
The plant seeks to make a wide range of vehicles for temporary accommodation of people, equipping laboratories, repair shops, mobile kitchens, radio electronic systems, special equipment and first-aid posts.
According to the report, KUNG can be used with chassis made by the plant: Bogdan truck chassis (MAZ) and Hyundai HD, as well as chassis of customers starting from three-meter to 13-meter chassis.
The KUNG vehicle could be equipped with heating system, air ventilation ducts, electric connectors, lighting, protective earthing and household equipment.
Plant Director Viacheslav Sopit said that today the plant can produce 10 vehicles a month. The cost of the vehicle will depend on its components and equipment.
