MW Motors Unleashes the MWM Spartan 2.0: UK's First Electric 4x4

Guess what's cruising into the UK, making a grand entrance with a zap and a bang? Czech newcomer MW Motors has just rolled out the UK's very first electric 4x4, the MWM Spartan 2.0, and it's something to talk about. Priced at a cool £50k, this bad boy is leapfrogging over its competition with a 150-mile range that'll keep you moving and a beastly 793lb ft of torque that'll have you towing dreams.

This isn't just any electric ride; it's a rugged, go-anywhere beast with a rolling ladder-frame chassis and a G-Wagen lookalike body that nods to the Force Motors' Gurkha 4x4. But here's the twist: while its body might remind you of something you've seen before, the electric heart and soul of this machine are all Czech, baby. MW Motors took the wheel and gave the Spartan 2.0 all the electric juice and engineering prowess it needed to stand out.

The interior? It's all about function over fluff, but still packing enough tech and comfort to give its future rivals a run for their money. And just when you thought it couldn't get cooler, MW Motors is already eyeing the future with plans for the Luka sports car. Think electric, think sports, think super cool handling, with a design that harks back to the '50s.

Back to our electric warrior, the Spartan 2.0. It's a single-motor powerhouse that replaces the traditional gearbox, sending power to all four wheels when you need it, or just two when you don't, with a simple flick. It's got manually locking differentials for when the going gets tough and hill descent control for when it's time to come back down.

With a battery that boasts a 150-mile range, it's designed to get the average Joe through the workweek without breaking a sweat. Charging? Fast and flexible, with the option to power up your tools directly from the truck. And it's not just about what's under the hood or in the battery pack. This truck is nimble, capable, and ready to tackle tight spots and tough angles that would make larger off-roaders sweat.

Inside, the Spartan is all about keeping things real. Adjustable seats, electric windows, air con, a digital dashboard, and an infotainment touchscreen ensure you're roughing it in style. Lukás Metelka, the general manager at MW Motors, puts it simply: they've kept all the rugged charm of a 4x4 but dialed up the comfort to make sure you're cruising comfortably, whether you're on the backroads or the highway.

And let's not forget the environmental angle. If you're out there keeping our parks pristine or our nature reserves regulated, what better way to show you care than by rolling silently and cleanly in an electric 4x4?

Rosh Mendis, MWM UK's sales guru, lays it out straight: if luxury is what you're after, keep looking. But if you want a vehicle that's all about getting the job done with a side of modern comfort and zero emissions, you've found your match.

So, as MW Motors gears up to bring us the Luka EV sports car later this year, it's clear they're not just about making a splash. They're here to electrify our adventures, one rugged, eco-friendly ride at a time. Get ready, because the electric revolution just got a little more exciting, and a lot more adventurous.
