The French Kart Requires Drivers to Sit in a Cross-Legged Position

The French Kart is an innovatively designed off-road electric kart, invented by Marcel Beltran, that is designed to combine the thrills of all-terrain kart driving with a unique driver seating position that is intended to change their outlook on karting.

This electric kart comes in two versions, one for children and another for adults. The children's model comes with a 36-volt, 800-watt electric motor and a top speed of 25 km/h, while the adult version features a 72-volt, 500-watt motor and a top speed of 50 km/h.

One of the peculiar aspects of this vehicle is that it requires the driver to sit in a cross-legged position for a whole new driving sensation that challenges drivers to perceive balance and poise differently while they're ripping through treacherous terrain. This simple design innovation succeeds in setting this electric kart apart from the competition.
