Artega, besides its electric roadster Scalo, unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show an electric quad called Karo.

This unique ATV hasthree motor options (4, 15 and 17 kW of continuous power) and a 5.3 kWh battery, good for up to 50 miles (80 km).

Peak power of the 17 kW motor is 38 kW, so just 10 kW less than in the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. The result is insane-like acceleration: 0-50 mph in 4.5 seconds.

“The Artega brand enters a new vehicle type with the Artega Karo. The new German electric fun mobile combines the benefits of ATVs, jet skis, and motor scooters. The two-seater Artega Karo is a concept vehicle that is prepared for serial production.

The racing-car-like chassis, in connection with the direct power of the electrical motor, provides a driving experience that exceeds the proverbial “karting feel”. The Artega Karo accelerates from 0 to 50 mls in under 5 seconds. Beautifully shaped leg shields with integrated reinforcement of high-strength steel optimise safety and splash water protection.

The fun factor is increased by a removable sound module with smartphone connection. Bluetooth can be used to play back the desired music from any device (mobile phone, tablet, MP3-player). The Artega Karo’s charging function is a perfect asset as well: The charger and charging cable with a regular protected plug are on board – just like in a vacuum cleaner.”

Good. People underestimate just how many quads/ATVs/onsite commercial vehicles (“Cushmans”) are sold, so having yet another competitor in the segment means this is getting big.

An electric quad is something that really appeals to me. Fun to drive and hopefully less expensive than buying a car so a cheaper alternative for someone to go electric.

I can dig it. I knew that you could.

Light quadricycles are illegal on US roads, unlike assault rifles.

Warren, so equip it with two hard mounted such items, then you can say it is the carrying case for them!

When they counter they are not in a locked case, you can counter with “You have the right to Bare arms!”
