ATAE Start-Up Will Launch A Hardcore Off-Roader Munro SUV

UK start-up, ATAE, is ready to launch its new Munro SUV and becomes the second Scottish manufacturer to embark on the adventure of building an off-roader 4x4 with a one-tonne payload and 150-mile range. Start-up All Terrain All-Electric (ATAE) was created by Russ Peterson and Ross Anderson and their goal is to return to the market the basic-to-basics electric off-roader.

Build around on a Foers Yorkshire manufacturer's fuelled Ibex F8, the 4x4 off-roader SUV is a better option to standing up to the ATAE's EV powertrain concept, and the 'Munro' chosen name reflects the Scottish heritage. Their targeted clients are farmers, estates, national parks, and adventure companies and a slight hope at the utility companies. As mentioned before, this isn't just an ordinary all-electric SUV, this a one-tonne buddy to help achieve your daily tasks.

Despite the details being still kept secretive, they motivate that it's because during the development process changes intervene and ASAE might not want to disappoint their future clients. It has been confirmed already that they will mainly use UK sourced components, including the batteries, and are aiming at 150-miles per single charge equipped with an enabled  DC rapid charging.

The current powerplant for the Munro EV is a US-designed motor-producing up to 212 horsepower and up to 350 Newton-meter of torque output, though it's not yet decisive. The envisioned architecture for the SUV is built with updated constructed techniques and a modified chassis that houses the batteries. 

Preventing electrolytic corrosion in order to extend the SUV's "life", the folded aluminum panels will be riveted and bonded to the framework. The manufacturers want to ensure ecological and economical maintenance of the electric vehicle. This one is a practical buddy - you can drive it on a field after a rainy day, go camping with your family or enjoy a working day on an animal farm. 

The prototypes should be ready in the next weeks and then follows at least 12 months of tests to make sure everything is knitted to the point.
