Fully solar electric at up to 10 000 km range per charge. In theory, the Acabion 0-1-XL 2020, this car have an autonomy of 2300 km at 100 km/h, from just 46 kWh battery capacity.
Av Toros Shaman
Unmatched off-roading capabilities are a consequence of implementing independent suspension for each of the wheels. The vehicle equipped with low pressure tires easily travels through marshes, tundra, rivers, shallow lakes, etc.
In order to get over water obstacles, AV Toros Shaman can be equipped with a screw-propeller enhancing its naval speed up to 4.3 mph. The vehicle has a hermetic boat-formed frame armed with high-performance water pumps (pumping up to 200 liters per minute) that remove water from the frame. Special flaps provide emergent water drop if convenient. Amphibious vehicles are ideal for extreme weather conditions.
Hydraulic actuator and power take-off shaft allow you to install a variety of auxiliaries, such as a water propeller. It allows the ATV to easily force water barriers and steadily move on water at speeds up to 7 km/h. Due to quick hydraulic connections, attaching the propeller takes not more than 2 minutes.
Eolo is a research and entrepreneurship project that seeks to create an electric automotive industry in Colombia and that this industry has a positive impact on society, the environment and economic growth.

Ok, it really isn't a defined automaker as such. But it is one of the most meritorious cars out there
Handmade vehicle built in large numbers in Alto Paraiso, Brazil.
The first jerico would have been the work of this state Lino Bogorni in 1983. The cars are assembled from components, usually Jeeps, pickup trucks and Willys, of which leverage the chassis and transmission 4 × 4; It is often the third dead shaft installation, increasing the load capacity to 2.5 t.
In 2007 the city estimated that there are 1,800 jericos in the city, compared to about 330 cars and trucks conventional. Each car was different, for more than ten workshops in the city building jericos, which reviews and restores all components, bought by the kilo in junkyards.
So entrenched were these vehicles in the local culture, which almost spontaneously began to emerge competitions builders. The success was immediate, leading to the institutionalization of the National Motor Racing Jericos.
Joe Harmon Splinter
The wooden supercar
The Splinter's engine is a 7.0L small-block V8. With an 8-throttle-body intake manifold, a camshaft ground specifically for our application, and a custom-built crossflow exhaust system to make close to 700bhp.
When most people think of a wooden vehicle, they don't think high performance. They are more likely to picture a canoe made of a hollowed-out log or a rickety wagon made of nailed-together planks. The Splinter, a high-performance, wooden supercar, is not made from these construction techniques. Essentially every wooden part of the Splinter is made from composite construction. Composites like carbon fiber or fiberglass have been seen in cars for decades, but a car using wood composites to the extent that the Splinter does has never been built before.
Korres P4 is a project that we have been following for years. Let's keep in mind that this project started before the SUV boom

Incredibly, it is not the only brand to produce mini-trucks. In Brazil we can find these kind of vehicles built by Fapinha
Lit C1 EP4
Alternative energy calls for a new kind of vehicle architecture. A vehicle with efficiency, safety, and unmatched stability.
Was designed for efficient high-speed travel, the exterior of the Lit C-1 is both approachable and simple, enveloping you in subtle curves, softened volumes, and expansive glass. C-1 is fully-enclosed, protecting you from the elements. It has all the comforts you expect from a car, like climate control and a premium sound system
With car-like safety features – seat belts, multiple airbags, a steel-reinforced chassis – along with their gyro stability system, the Lit C-1 gives you the safety of a traditional four-wheeled car on two wheels.
The best innovation is their patented gyroscopic stability system. They use electronically-controlled control moment gyroscopes (CMGs) to generate thousands of ft-lbs of torque. The gyros are controlled by the vehicle, allowing it to lean itself into and out of turns, and stay upright when stopped–even in a collision! Their gyro system is the key to bringing the safety and interface of a car to a two-wheeled platform.
Typically reserved for 4-wheel cars, the AEV (Autonomous-balancing Electric Vehicle) platform not only auto balances but features a reverse drive mode to allow easier ingress and egress out of tight city streets and parking spots.
Modular electric vehicles. Each module can join and detach with other modules on standard city roads. When joined, they create an open, bus-like area among modules, allowing passengers to stand and walk from one module to another.
Modularity allows en-route-transfer, that optimizes system capacity, cuts cost and traffic, increase ubiquity and comfort for the passengers. Thanks to thorough cognitive psychology scientific analysis using Virtual Reality interactive simulation we've developed the most simple and seamless in-motion-transfer user experience

EXAGON MOTORS FURTIVE EGT
The Exagon Furtive-eGT is powered by two Siemens Inside e-Car motors, each developing 148 kW motors. Together they produce the equivalent of 402 bhp at between 5,000 and 10,000 rpm. They are centrally mounted and mated to an innovative ZTI (Zero Torque Interruption), three-speed gearbox. With a constant 516 Nm of torque between 0 and 5,000 rpm, the Furtive-eGT delivers phenomenal acceleration, going from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.5 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 250 kph.
Its cutting-edge lithium-ion technology guarantees a capacity of 53 kWh. After 3,000 charging cycles, over 80% of battery power remains – enough to take the car one million more kilometres. The third key element, located between the battery and the motors, are the inverters, which manage the propulsion units by controlling the amplitude and frequency of the electrical energy to vary the torque and motor speed. They were specially developed by Siemens to meet the needs of the Furtive-eGT.
