VENTUS / All Terrain Vehicle


VENTUS is an electric 4x4 vehicle concept which combines offroad abilities of an ATV with proportions of a naked bike. It is run by wind turbines which are integrated in the rearwheels. This causes the omission of the dependence on charging-infrastructure. The concept is addressed to adventurous young people who spend a lot of time in nature and carry an average amount of luggage or equipment with them. The luggage is protected by a robust and weatherproof fabric on each side. In addition to this a protector case made out of robust plastics is integrated between the stabilizing braces.
