Green Overdrive: Electric Off-Roading With Fortune Hanebrink [video]

Originally designed as a bike that could ride across the icy Antarctic snow, the Hanebrink all-terrain vehicle has the widest tires in the industry — at least the widest we’ve ever seen. The Fortune Hanebrink crew later added on an on-demand electric system, a 600-watt motor and a battery that turned the vehicle into the first off-road electric bike, with a speed up to 20 mph. For this week’s episode of GigaOM TV’s Green Overdrive show, we go electric off-roading with President Kane Fortune.

  1. I think Hanebrink is first of its kind electric all terrain vehicle. Electric vehicles like Hanebrink can replace current two wheelers that run on petrol. Various governments across the globe should take up an initiative and subsidizes production of clean energy vehicles and other alternatives sources of clean energy to run vehicles on road, so that more companies start producing clean energy vehicles. Considering the fact that the fossil fuels have already contributed in a major way by adding to existing pollution, carbon emission, global warming etc. which will going ahead perish in time, I think due to these concerns, over a period of time clean energy cars and vehicles like Hanebrink, Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, Vivaro will gain a market.
