Eco Off-Road Vehicles

The Electric Race Xtreme Buggy Proves Green Can be Mean

— December 17, 2011 — Autos
The deserts and back country trails of the world could soon become a greener place thanks to the Electric Race Xtreme Buggy. The Electric Race Xtreme Buggy is an electric buggy designed by Italian car company TGS.

The Electric Race Xtreme Buggy has a maximum speed of 46 mph and has a range between 74 and 90 miles. The buggy is nearly similar in all aspects to the current crop of gas-powered dune buggies on the market, which should help it appeal to off-roaders questioning its capabilities. The Electric Race Xtreme Buggy is put through its paces in the featured video. The TGS buggy performs admirably in adverse terrain, and is a lot quieter than gas-powered buggies. Green silence is a good thing, as noise and engine pollution are two things that outdoor recreation areas are constantly trying to cut down on.
Trend Themes
1. Electric Off-road Vehicles - There is a growing trend for environmentally friendly off-road vehicles, creating opportunity for innovative companies to develop electric alternatives to gas-powered dune buggies
