Artega remains to be a brand known for manufacturing innovative vehicles. Not one to disappoint, the company has come out with its newest concept vehicle, the Artega Karo. This vehicle makes use of a wholly electric drive with the advantages afforded by the motor scooters, all-terrain vehicles, and jet skis.
For example, the chassis of the Karo, which is similar to that of race cars, when combined with the electric motor, gives more than a "karting feel" to the driving experience. Another special feature is the leg shields with reinforced high-strength steel integrated to it.
This does not only improve its splash water protection but also enhances the side impact protection. Unlike most electric vehicles available on the market, it is relatively easy to charge the Artega Karo. Everything is already on board like the charging cable with protective plug and even the charger itself.
The Karo is compact, measuring 81.7 inches long and 51.2 inches wide. It is light as well, weighing merely 705 lbs. with the battery pack. There are three main components to the Karo’s load-bearing structure which are the front-axle module, its battery container, and rear axle module.
This particular modular build was developed exclusively to ensure that serial production is efficient and the unit is maintenance-friendly. Both the front module and read module have double steel crosslinks attached to them.
Artega Karo has a powerful broadband speaker resulting in basic tone playback with clear treble. Using any device like a MP3 player, mobile phone or tablet, music can be played by the system through Bluetooth. With the components of the speaker being weather-proof, it is possible to make the drive regardless of conditions.
What makes this system even more amazing is that while it is still connected with the smartphone, the system can be detached from the Karo allowing one to play music anywhere. In addition, the smartphone that has been connected to the sound system can be used for navigation. As a warning though, the system can only be used for a maximum of four hours.
Another amazing feature of the Artega Karo is that the lithium-ion batteries can be charged on its own or in conjunction with the vehicle. Integrated with the Karo is the system that allows for wireless charging and through external devices. Artega discloses that this particular concept vehicle is now being readied for serial production.
