With the world turning towards EVs at a very rapid pace, automobile makers have also started executing their EV plans. Some brands have taken the EV concept to another level by making EVs that are serious off-roaders. In this article, we will discuss some electric off-roaders that are coming soon in the global markets.
Tesla Motors is a brand which has established itself as a serious electric car manufacturer, and it is evident as Tesla has taken the top position in the world’s most valuable list companies. Tesla had gotten into new territory two years ago, by introducing an electric off-roader which the brand called the Cybertruck. The Cybertruck turned heads with its odd, though futuristic design.
The Cybertruck is based on an Ultra-hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structure giving it a solid body providing safety to the passengers on the inside. The Cybertruck will be offered with autopilot and adaptive air suspension as standard with a minimum towing capacity of 3400kg. The Cybertruck will also be able to do 0-96kmph in less than 2.9 seconds with the tri-motor AWD model.
Hummer, a nameplate which got left behind a decade ago due to poor sales is now coming back in a completely new electric avatar. The GMC is bringing the Hummer EV, which has got Hummer fans excited. The new Hummer is expected to be based on the GM’s BT1 Platform, which is another variant of the GM T1 platform which is a body-on-frame platform. The Hummer EV will be a serious off-roader with revolutionary features like underbody cameras, all-wheel steering, diagonal-driving capabilities and dynamic suspensions.
The Hummer EV will be able to produce 1000bhp and will be able to do 0-96kmph in around 3 seconds. With modern features and a sharp look, the Hummer EV will come to stay.
