Lotus constructs Concept Ice Vehicle for Antarctic operations

After the gray terrain, it’s the White terrain gaining imperative significance as a region of development. If that wasn’t too comprehensible, Lotus is developing the Concept Ice Vehicle (CIV) to aid the research for the Moon Regan TransAntarctic Expedition. The propeller driven, bio-fuel powered vehicle measures 4.5 meters in length as well as width and holds an independent suspension all around. The lucrative part is the ice penetrating radar that help in detecting crevasses and it’s lightweightedness that allows one man to cart it across difficult terrain, which is particularly useful for mission-oriented explorers. It’s also got a ‘spiked foot’ under the cockpit (inspired by footwear technology) probably for stopping on icy terrain.

If the CIV is way over the top for you, then take a look at the Econoline vehicles with 44” monster tires for making a chilly trip across the white deserts. Also check out the photo gallery of the CIV and two videos of the CIV where it looks no different than a three-legged insect taking a fleeting crawl on ice.
