The Eleron is a ‘Targa’ topped SUV that was created based on the learnings from the Avanti sportscar.

The SUV sits on a space frame chassis that is made of carbon composite two-door three box, targa roof. The company claims that the space frame chassis provides for excellent torsional stiffness. At the front, it gets all LED lighting with bi-halogen headlamps. The Eleron comes standard with ABS and weighs 2.5 tons.
