Fering Pioneer received two high-torque electric motors and a generator powered by biodiesel. It is capable of climbing 60-degree slopes and 1.4-meter fords.
The British company Fering Technologies is developing a car with a record power reserve. The Pioneer electric SUV will be able to drive up to 7,000 km on a single gas station. Photos and details of the new model appeared on the official website of the automaker.
The new Fering Pioneer will become an electric analogue of the classic Hummer H1. The large four-door pickup has short overhangs and an angular design. The car received huge 22.5-inch off-road tires.
Dimensions Fering Pioneer:
- Length – 5526 mm
- Width – 2000 mm
- Height – 1974mm
The electric car is based on an aluminum frame, and the body panels are made of lightweight composite materials, so the mass turned out to be small – 1.5 tons. The SUV can carry the same amount.
The Fering Pioneer electric car will receive two motors with a total torque of 800 N∙m (power is still kept secret). The maximum speed is 125 km/h.
The battery of the electric car is small – it provides only 80 km of power reserve. Next, a 95-horsepower biodiesel-powered motor-generator is turned on. The modular design of the car allows you to install several fuel tanks – in this case, you can drive 7000 km on one gas station. If desired, one of the tanks can be replaced with a container of drinking water.
During the tests, the new Fering Pioneer demonstrated excellent cross-country ability – it overcame 60-degree slopes and obstacles half a meter high. The clearance of the SUV is adjustable within 300-800 mm, which allows forcing 1.4-meter fords.
The serial Fering Pioneer will appear in 2024 and will cost about 150 thousand pounds ($180,000). Later, a six-wheeled version of the model will also be presented.
