British and Italian off-road truck specialist, Bremach, has released information on a new truck that is more in touch with the environment than it first appears. The Bremach T-Rex is actually an electric vehicle, but it can be bought as a full petrol or hybrid package as well.
In full-electric guise, the Bremach T-Rex uses a 100kW lithium ion battery set-up connected to a sophisticated four-wheel drive system. Bremach says the T-Rex electric has a range of up to 240km over any terrain the driver needs to conquer.
Bremach also does a hybrid package comprising a 6.0-litre petrol V8 engine matched to a 40kW electric motor, providing a combined output of 280kW. In case you’re not happy with the amount of fuel it still drinks (hybrid consumption figures not disclosed), Bremach also do a LPG version as well.
For those that aren’t bothered with the effects of global warming, Bremach will do a petrol-only version that is equipped with the 6.0-litre V8 producing around 240kW. Even in this form, Bremach says it has a fuel consumption rating of 11.7L/100km – not bad for a heavy-duty 3000kg truck.
Speaking of heavy duty, the Bremach offers superior off-road potential, with its 48-degree approach angle and 44-degree departure angle, it’s a truck that can also climb 45-degree slopes. It doesn’t mind taking a dip into water either and is able to ford up to 900mm.
Prices for the electric Bremach T-Rex start at around $120,000. Bremach offers two-door and four-door versions, as well as a convertible option.
