Like its predecessor, the BT-50 is available in three body versions:

  • Single cabin with 2 seats (not available with all-wheel drive and not for Germany)
  • Long cab, four-door (rear doors open in opposite directions, two rear emergency seats)
  • Double cab, four-door (rear bench suitable for long journeys)
