Swincar e-spider: The Most Robust ATV
MECANROC, a French Company, founded by Mr. Pascasl Rambaud and Mr.Jerome Arsac coordinately developed one of the most adventurous, fun-filled, recreational ATV named Swincar!

Swincar is designed in such a way that it can move in almost every terrain, including hills, off roads, small water streams. On top of that, it is fully electric with each wheel having its own power so that you can ride adventurously without pollution!
First of all, the engineers designed the Swincar by basically keeping in mind a spider. When a spider moves forward, individual legs adjust the elevation irrespective of the terrain. In the same manner, swincar’s individual wheels can adjust to the terrain. The driver sits in a suspended cabin. Each individual wheel has independent suspension and an electric motor which connects to the steering. The entire design concept focuses on the drivability in almost all terrains. The ATV achieves this with the free movement of wheels due to gravity. It does not involve any electronics.
Now Corner on four wheels with swincar
The most amazing future of this ATV is that it can corner like motorcycles! All the wheels can tilt symmetrically, which gives swincar an incredible feel of cornering! Surprisingly, only the centrifugal force achieves this tilting ability. In the tilted situation, the platform or cabin remains horizontal keeping driver in a safe position!
The wheels and streamlined casing on the outer side of the vehicle act like a pendulum which yields equilibrium to the vehicle thereby helping to achieve tilting in the corners and correction of tilt on slopes. To avoid too much freedom to the wheels, the ATV employs a push-pull mechanism in both the directions.

So, all this helps in achieving the right balance between the platform and the movement of the wheels. While the driver’s platform is suspended below the hub, which opens the possibility of movement of the wheels up and down 70% grades and across 50% grades.
Swin car power units
Swincars’ individually articulated wheels have a 1000W, brush-less motor which gives unexceptional torque and power. All wheels come with regenerative braking technology so that the battery charges when you apply the brakes. This helps the battery to last longer. So the battery life is almost up to 4 hours of driving in hilly terrains.

In addition, the E-spider is Light and nimble with extraordinary terrain crossing capabilities. You can drive this ATV on the snow as well. Individual independent suspensions are extremely helpful on slopes, hilly areas, and highly undulating terrains. It can also be utilized for military operations due to its maneuverability and agility. In addition, it is adaptable for disabled persons which will help them for commuting. Very useful, isn’t it?
