Transportation is going electric; the one thing the EV industry has forgotten about is the utility terrain vehicle (UTV). UTVs are not something that everyone thinks about all the time, but the market is still quite large and there are many UTVs out there contributing to emissions. Not to worry, the innovative team at Battle Approved Motors (BAM) is working their hardest to correct this problem!
Not only are they industry disruptors by correcting the emissions problem, but they have completely reimagined the UTV. The BAM UTV is faster, sleeker, can handle rougher terrain and is much more exciting than the typical boxy UTV you see today.
What is Battle Approved Motors?
Battle Approved Motors is an early-stage startup that is building the next generation of UTVs. Their UTVs are intended for racing, general use, work use situations, and eventually day-to-day transportation.
The idea was piqued from the 2015 Amazon Prime series Mod Kids USA. In the show, the actors race modified UTVs that look like mini trucks and are a whole lot of fun. The BAM founder and Mod Kids producer, Chris James, thought how great it would be to design a new vehicle, but for adults, make it electric, and then available to the masses, so he went to work designing a prototype and assembling a team.
The BAM UTV Design
The design really sets the company apart from the rest. The UTVs reflect Chris’ love for sports cars and sports, inspired by his father, a former Formula 3 driver — you could say racing is in his blood. As a result, the UTVs resemble a compact futuristic Batmobile built for uneven terrain, speed, and safety.
Despite the initial description, the UTVs were also designed with utility in mind, making them great vehicles for work and play. In addition to racing friends or speeding across the countryside, BAM UTVs can be used for more conventional tasks like equipment hauling and tracking. Imagine checking pastures or outbuildings in this super-fast, fun and electric UTV.
Because the UTV is designed like a small car, it is safer than a vehicle where the driver is completely exposed to the elements. For example, when a driver rolls a traditional UTV, they are at a higher risk of injury compared to a UTV with an encased driving space. The encasement additionally allows for a high-tech dashboard with navigation and the works.
What BAM has Been up To
The company has recently hit some critical milestones. In January 2022, they finalized the exterior body design for the r101 UTV with the Race Development Crew. This development will continue to allow the company to remain on schedule for prototype completion by the end of 2023. They also recently acquired more than 200 acres for prototype testing and are excited to invite top investors for a chance to take the new UTVs for a spin.
