Artisans of Oaxaquen and Huichol origin have designed all the details of the SUV and turned it into a work of art. It will eventually be on display at the company's museum in Germany after touring 10 Mexican cities. The SUV's decor has pre-Hispanic patterns, reflective of the culture. The artists used pre-Columbian graphics, colors typical of Oaxaca specifically, and Mexico. They also used a flag of the indigenous people on the roof.
