A completely new commercial lightweight amphibious all-terrain vehicle designed to match modern requirements in mobility and off-road performance. Most of classic concepts of amphibious ATV were reviewed and our product utilizes many opportunities of modern technologies, already available in automotive and aerospace industries but never seen before in ATVs.
Electric transmission eliminates most of unreliable parts of XX century designs: gears, chains, gearboxes and clutch as well as reducing power losses and overall weight. With a purpose-built on-board computer and power controller the efficiency of transmission is close to the maximum on any terrain. Individual and precise torque control for every motor considering terrain condition and grip considerably raises performance and stability of the vehicle whilst saving energy and protecting itself from damage, which is all essential for any modern electric transport. Even the internal combustion engine is no longer dominating the design. Being coupled with an alternator it is playing role of a standalone power supply module which could be replaced by a fuel cell or other type of energy storage in the future without redesign of the drivetrain and transmission.
A new approach for a multi-track drivetrain, resembling four giant low-pressure wheels implemented as track modules combines the advantages of both wheel and tracks. A wide boat-like main body with low centre of gravity and completely solid below waterline gives the Vanquisher a huge advantages on water and in wetlands. Two full-size stretchers or four passengers not including the driver is a best in class value for a rescue vehicle, which could be easily transported in a trailer by a street car due to its small size and weight.
