Design Concept of the Day: TrakRok

June 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today I’m liking TrakRok, the work of Toronto-based industrial design graduate Alexei Mikhailov. TrakRok is an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) with two wheels up front and tank-like tracks to the rear, designed for all surfaces, snow and extreme mud. It has a tough but lightweight exoskeleton-style ‘rib cage’ chassis in anodized aluminium, and a hydrogen-fuelled powertrain; its liquid-cooled fuel cells are positioned in its ‘belly’, for optimum protection and a low centre of gravity and  power two in-wheel motors up front and the independent track system to the rear. Mikhailov has already designed products for the automotive aftermarket; more at his website. Thanks to Car Body Design.
