Der Ziesel One Really Strange Off-Road Electric Vehicle

All things being equal, this next electric vehicle is quite simply one of the most weirdest ones we’ve ever covered. It is an off-road offering from an Austrian company, and what perhaps stands out the most about it from first glance is it gets around on rubber caterpillar-style tracks as opposed to regular tires.
Developed for use year round, this electric vehicle is driven by two electric motors with rated power of 4.8 kW that are powered by a 6 kWh lithium-ion battery with “fully automated heating system.” A joystick is what you use to steer this beast, which is a quite hefty monster weighing in at some 462.9 pounds.
