This particular powerpoint presentation by ISRO shows us some of the planned mission parameters of the all important rover of Chandrayaan-2. The image at the bottom right is of the rover conceptualized by the Vikram Sarabhai Space Center. The Russian rover is supposed to weigh around 100 kg and the Indian rover will weigh 30 kg. The mass of the lander itself and onboard fuel will take the total mass of the entire lander to around 300 kg.
