Built for Every Terrain
The Tuatara UTV is a steel framed electric UTV invented to help you draw the bounty from the land. Weather you are farming, hunting, or taking in the beautiful American wilderness, this vehicle is built as a light expedition truck that can take you into the deepest reaches of the wilderness, endure the most unforgiving weather and terrain and return home fully loaded with stories and bounty from our excursion. The Tuatara is a purpose built gas/ electric vehicle with steel construction standard features that can't be found anywhere else and a battery management system designed to outperform the gas engine.
Front Utility Winch
When your adventures encounter obstacles, pull your vehicle or those who tried to follow you out of trouble. The Tuatara's front mounted winch lets you quickly and safely return to your journey.
With a 3000lb capacity and 100' of wire rope, this winch is controlled from right inside the drivers seat.
Rear Lift Deck
Whether you are transporting farm materials like hay, raw materials like gravel, or unloading the spoils of your latest hunting expedition, the lift deck can handle a load up to 1500lbs capacity to make your work easier, faster and more enjoyable.
Top & Front Racks
We took the two most significant wastes of space and turned them into an asset. This seemed appropriate because farmers and hunters alike will place bags of feed or their latest kill on the front and roof of the vehicle anyway. Well now you can strap them down and have three times the storage as a conventional offload vehicle.
Controls Fit For a Pilot
Control every aspect of the vehicle right from the drivers seat. Manage differentials, operate the lift deck and drive in the winch all from your driver seat and manage a myriad of lights so you can work late into the night.
All Steel Construction
We wanted a vehicle that would last for decades so our engineering team insisted on an all steel frame. This is not a plastic UTV, this is a purpose built electric vehicle designed with a frame to take on the constant abuse of unforgiving
terrain and weather.
50-80 Mile Range
Accelerate quickly, haul everything, and go the distance with battery power to take you and your copilots 50-80 miles out into the wilderness. We built the eTuatara with enough capacity to out distance any modern UTV petro engines.
Silent as the Night
A mobile hunters dream. Move silently through the wilderness right up to your target. This has to be the most exciting unintended feature ever created in the off-road industry. Take your Tuatara out into the wilderness and hear the wildlife around you. You can approach your targets silently, adjust your front windshield and take your shot right out of the front seat.
Powerful ZeroNox Battery Technology
ZeroNox engineers have developed the most advanced industrial vehicle battery technology in the industry, specifically designed for the high power and torque required to haul guests and cargo far into the distance. This vehicle includes the ZeroNox Lithium Iron Battery with advanced battery management software to get the most performance out your vehicle.
50-80 Mile Radius (Range Extension Available)
3.5 Hours to Full Charge
Up to 10 Year Battery Life
"Don't follow him, you won't make it." Words of caution given to the SUV driver on our first video shoot. We wanted tires, shocks and 4-wheel-drive that would drive the Tuatara up a wall. This vehicle is not only equipped with the optimal tires for seemingly impossible terrain but is equipped with differential locks and 4-wheel-drive options.
Assembled in America
We have gathered some of the best vehicle components from around the globe and are assembling the final vehicle in Porterville California. It is also here that we compile our battery systems and integrate the vehicle and battery together with the ZeroNox BMS or Battery Management System to dramatically increase range and efficiency.
