Swincar E-Spider has independent suspension and an electric motor on each of its four wheels. Perhaps the term “independent suspension” does not do justice to this electric vehicle, when you watch the video you will surely agree with me. This electric spider has 4 long, individually articulated legs that allow it to be very agile and avoid any surface that gets in its way.
The vehicle or buggy, if you want us to call it that, uses a technology that allows each arm of the axle to be independent of the rest, creating an all-terrain vehicle of great versatility. According to its manufacturer, E-Spider can go up and down gradients of 50% with all four wheels firmly planted on the ground. Its structure is made of aluminum.
Each wheel is driven by a motor, 1 – 1.5 kW depends on the model. Under the driver’s legs the batteries of a choice of 2, 4 or 6 kWh are placed. The Swincar uses a conventional steering wheel that turns the front and rear wheels in opposite directions.
Created by Pascal Rambaud, Jerome Arsac, and Thierry James, the Swincar has been in development for 8 years and is now almost ready for production, as a hybrid car. Currently, the company is looking for investors to be able to put this vehicle on the market. They even have plans for a two-seater if things work out, as well as a joystick steering version.
