Now this is something I would definitely bring to the poles in case the humans want to conquer the vast no man lands, the arctic has to offer. This robust arctic vehicle is amazing, it has three basic features that make it outstanding. First is the ability to run on different terrains such as snow, flooded areas or even water and earth. It’s an amphibious all terrain research vehicle. The vehicle has an independent suspension for the track system and the float. The suspension is fixed using a pivot attached to the side, giving the Arctic Explorer a staggering maneuverability and the chance to offer it’s passengers a smooth ride across any extreme surface. This suspension system also facilitates a good entrance in the water filled areas and a smooth and safe exit. The body has been designed to have a small boot for material stocking in the back. The Arctic Explorer is designed to serve the researchers in the arctic regions and due to its clean motorization is also Eco-friendly.
