Venturi Automobiles company is going to prove. Electric cars are suitable not only for the city streets. To this end, it has developed an unusual vehicle.
Called project eloquently – Venturi Antarctica. Designed platform for use in harsh climates of Antarctica.
The vehicle is positioned as an all-terrain vehicle for scientists. To collect various samples without the risk of contamination of samples.
Machines with an internal combustion engine adversely affect air and soil in the study area. Seriously distorts the results.
Venturi Antarctica can reduce the risk to a minimum. The invention uses two electric motors of 40 horsepower. Venturi Antarctica is powered by a battery of 23 kWh.
Power reserve modest – 20 km. Wheel modification has a top speed of 45 km / h. Crawler option – 25 km / h.
Useful “bonus”: a prototype easily overcomes 40-percent slopes.
We should also mention easy operation. Control is carried out with the joystick. “Piloting” Venturi Antarctica can everyone.
When the all-terrain vehicle will travel to Antarctica? In the coming months. Now the novelty is tested in the Southern Alps. The creators are trying to achieve the perfect work at low temperatures (down to minus 40 degrees Celsius).
