The RG31 EHM (Extended High Mobility) is based on the RG31 Mk5 but it has a longer chassis of 400mm to increase internal volume of the vehicle. It has a new engine of 300 hp power compared to the standard RG31 Mk5 which has a 250 hp power engine to increase the mobility in all-terrain conditions. The RG31 is a 4x4 vehicle with a V-shaped hull that protects the crew against anti-tank mine detonations and Armour-Piercing (AP) rifle fire.

The RG31 is successfully deployed with peacekeeping and military forces in numerous theatres. The vehicle boasts excellent levels of protection against landmines and IEDs, making this a highly effective multi-role armoured vehicle.

The RG31 is available as an APC or Utility Vehicle. The latter can be utilized for cargo or the modular mounting of a variety of weapon systems, such as 81 mm mortar, 106 mm RCL and 20 mm cannon. All variants are also readily adaptable to a variety of other applications, including command and control, rapid intervention, urban or rural patrols and Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD).

The RG31 has a V-shaped, monocoque welded steel hull. Access is through a wide rear door, as well as side doors, while roof hatches ensure emergency access and egress.

The APC variant accommodates a driver and up to nine crew.
