All-Electric Wrangler Handles Off-Road Course With Ease

By -


Still doubting the capabilities of an all-electric Wrangler?

Then you might want to check out this beast built by the CAD4X Laboratory at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). Powered by a “dual 60 kW motor,” the Jeep cranks out 160 horsepower and 210 lb-ft. of torque, as highlighted in a report.

The all-electric rock-crawler is also fitted with 37″ tires fitted to KAIST-built wheels, in order to give all that extra torque the grip and durability necessary for crawling on rocks. In the video below, the KAIST Jeep is shown pulling off a number of impressive off-road maneuvers, proving that it’s as capable as most any Wrangler powered by a traditional combustion engine.

It all makes a pretty strong argument that tough terrains like Moab and the Rubicon could very well be overrun with electric Jeeps in the near future. Will yours be one of them?
