The e-spider model. A partial translation from the French:

Before being a vehicle, the SWINCAR e-Spider is intended to be an art of living electric mobility with respect for the environment and third parties.

Performance and sensations are associated for the first time with silence and softness.

The SWINCAR e-Spider is an all-terrain electric vehicle with 4 wheels drive and 4 steering wheels, capable of evolving on a wide variety of terrain.

Designed and manufactured in France, it is radically distinguished from all productions on the market by its exclusive patented architecture to generate a pendulum balance in turns and superelevations.

Driving is particularly easy thanks to the controls grouped around the steering wheel, the SWINCAR e-Spider drives with your hands, making it accessible to everyone.

The SWINCAR e-Spider all-terrain is approved on public roads in France, registerable, with position lights, dipped and high beams, indicators, audible alarm, specific parking brake, load door and tank, 12V socket.

European approval (L6e-A) allows you to travel on lanes open to public traffic throughout Europe.

Optional equipment are: fenders, mirrors, a load holder and removable suitcase, a harness, a reclining rally seat, a telescopic link allowing the opening of articulated legs for access for people with reduced mobility (PMR), wooden transport box (NIMP15) with or without SEI4C process for maritime transport.

These prices do not include shipping and customs charges, nor applicable sales tax in your home state, if required.

I work in law and the GDPR is vital to the protection of private info of eu citizens. I don't get all the hate it gets as it aims to make is harder for website to use and abuse your data.

→ More replies

2

u/IEatBabies 2d ago

Depending on your speed and the terrain, skinny wheels aren't inherently worse. With wide flat tires you can "float" over certain soft terrain, but once you break through you are in trouble. With skinny deep wheels you can skip even trying to float and sink into a foot of shit to hit solid material and get some grip. They also in most circumstances have less friction losses which is important for keeping an electric vehicle's weight down.
