Introducing the New Swincar E-Spider
For over 8 years Mecanroc, a French Company, headed by Pascal Rambaud, along with Jerome Arsac and Thierry James have been working on a new 4-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicle called the Swincar E-Spider. This is the most unusual tilting 4-wheeler of its kind. The vehicle can traverse over the roughest terrains because each wheel has its own electric hub motor that’s powered by a 1000-watt brushless electric motor.
The spider-like limbs of the vehicle allow it to operate like a motorcycle by leaning into fast turns. Furthermore, this great all-terrain car can easily go up or down 70-percent grade or even ride across a 50-percent grade with ease. The 4 wheels and spider-like arms keep the vehicle straight while the driver rides through ditches. The wheels and the arms of the vehicle will move up and down according to the terrain.
The all-terrain car has some great features that no other off-road vehicle in its class has. The Swincar can travel terrains that no ATV can handle. The tilting, independent suspension arms give the car’s suspension a degree of tilting and vertical movement. Furthermore, the car can hand giant ruts, rocks, and the most difficult terrains with ease. Because of the stable base and additional security this car resists tipping over. However, if you drive the Swincar on smooth surfaces the car can easily lean into turns because of its wider wheel base.
The car supports hydraulically-actuated 4-wheel steering and breaking that allows the driver to turn with ease. Furthermore, the steering gives each of the wheels a certain degree of flexibility so the car can easily handle rough and rutted terrains. Each wheel on the car operates on its own motor that is powered by a battery pack under the driver’s legs.
The Swincar E-Spider is an emission-free recreational vehicle that operates off-road or on any street. Currently, the Swincar team is seeking distributors, resellers, or investors to carry this project to the next level. The company plans on building a 2-seater Swincar E-Spider next.
