    EVDrive built this crazy AWD UTV for an OEM which then dropped out of the program. 160 horsepower equivalent, with software that allows wheels to turn independently in any direction. It's truly awesome.

    Now shopping for a new client, they've released video of this thing in action. Must see EV TV.

    Looks really cool; the only thing I wonder is can it do that zero-radius trick on non-dirt ground? Somehow, I do not think it would work. You would simply destroy the tires.

    That thing looks beastly.

    I think EVs in general are poised to dominate the market by sheer force of awesomeness.

    I'm pretty sure it could do it, but there would be some small amount of tire destruction.
