Developed after two years of research and development, this prototype is halfway between farm quad and tractor, Kulan is a futuristic vision of a possible evolution of this mode of transportation.
Kulan is a versatile electric utility vehicle for the fields (and thus silent allowing it to access protected areas). Indeed, despite its 300kg weight, it can support up to a ton of payload.
It is put in motion by two in-wheel motors, its range can go up to 300km or 6 hours.
Its lightweight is achieved through the use of materials such as reinforced polyurethane on the rear cargo area, the research on the materials comes from PolySax, a school specializing in plastic materials.
As for its clean, functional design, it has been drawn by Felix Götze, Tom Mudra and Hans-Tobias Schicktanz.
Poly Lab is now seeking industrial partners - mainly manufacturers - to build a vehicle that would integrate some of Kulan’s advanced features.
