A bunch of maniacs decided to turn a Tesla Model 3 into a tank with some giant chain tracks – resulting in a 6-ton electric off-roading machine.
At Electrek, we believe every ground transport vehicle is going to go battery-electric over the next few decades, and that includes off-roading vehicles.
It is certainly not a priority segment to electrify, but it slowly getting some electric options.
Some people can’t wait, though, and decide to build some themselves using existing electric cars.
Tesla vehicles, thanks to their popularity and great electric powertrains, have been popular for those conversions.
They added giant tank tracks to the electric car, turning it into a giant 6-ton electric tank.
It took them four weeks to build the vehicle, and most of that time was spent on building those giant tracks using 1.3-ton chains.
