Vanderhall isn`t just a three-wheeled vehicle company. With the production of the Brawley™, Vanderhall will revolutionize and create a new category of adventure vehicles. The Vanderhall Brawley is offered in several specs, but for now, the company has revealed some details of the superior Brawley GTS. It comes with a four-motor configuration – one motor on each wheel – which are individually controlled. They produce 404 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque combined. The motor, inverter, brakes, cooling system and gearbox are housed in one unit. Each wheel will have an electric motor and the off-road will also have all-wheel steering and an anti-lock braking system. Speaking of braking: The Brawley will also have regenerative braking, which brings us to the range. According to Vanderhall, you can expect more than 200 miles of range on a single charge, although we assume that this requires the type of driving for which this type of vehicle was decidedly not built. Luckily, with DC fast charging available, you can reach 80% in less than an hour.
Other “features or options” will include heated seats and a ViDAR system, but base prices haven`t been announced, although reservations will open on July 15, so we expect everything to be revealed at that time. In terms of battery, the company will offer 40 kWh and 60 kWh modules with an advanced battery conditioning system that “extends range in cold weather and increases battery life.” The company says the Brawley will offer an estimated range of 200 miles (322 km). With a DC fast charger, the battery recovers 80% of its energy in less than an hour. As you`d expect from an off-roader, the cabin is pretty basic, but looks great thanks to the four individual seats, leather upholstery, large glass surfaces for maximum viewing angles, and minimal dashboard with analog instruments. There is also a glove box, heating, air conditioning, heated seats, an optional awning and a Bluetooth foosball sound system. Don`t expect airbags, as this is not a road-legal vehicle, although Vanderhall mentions the future capabilities of the ViDAR system. To match its off-road capabilities, the Brawley comes with 35-inch tires wrapped around 18-inch wheels in the top fairings. It has internal bypass shock absorbers and has a spring travel range of 22 inches. The Brawley has a sealed cabin with filter.
It comes with a sunroof if you want to enjoy the sunlight, but you can also remove part of the roof for an outdoor experience. Also note that the doors have a transparent section in the lower half. If you haven`t heard of Vanderhall, we don`t blame you. The company usually makes tricycles like the Carmel, and even these aren`t particularly popular on the middle road. Still, the company aspires to become mainstream, and what could be more fashionable these days than an electric vehicle? Its latest creation is indeed all-electric and was annexed to us last year as a competitor of the Jeep Wrangler. Go big or go home, don`t you? Now, this new electric off-roader called Vanderhall Brawley has been soothed to us again, but with more than a dark image. Watch the video below to see how the Brawley behaves on the massive sand dunes. Inside, he is by no means tech-savvy.
It is equipped with air conditioning, a leather steering wheel and a Bluetooth audio system. Behind the simple steering wheel is a series of screens that look super cool. If you`re wondering how big the touchscreen is here, there`s no touchscreen. Electric vehicles have become synonymous with large touchscreens, but Vanderhall left it on the Brawley. Instead, you get retro switches on the dashboard. If you`re looking for old-school vibes from the cockpit of an electric vehicle, this will spark your interest. Apart from that, the Brawley is also offered with heated seats and a ViDAR system. To make it convenient, the off-road can accommodate up to four adults.
But that`s a debatable point, because the Brawley may not even be road legal! It`s stripped down in terms of safety features — no airbags either — and doesn`t meet federal safety standards. The company emphasizes that a full-face helmet must be worn when driving. The Brawley SUV will launch as part of the Vanderhall model lineup in 2022, but if you`re interested, keep in mind that it`s not street legal, so you`ll have to drive it to the off-road playground and back. The Brawley™ will accommodate four adults and an open cabin. Other features or options include wipers, foosball Bluetooth audio system, heated seats, and future ViDAR system features. The Brawley comes with two battery options – 40 kWh and 60 kWh. The off-road comes with a six-kW charger and is available with DC fast charging. Charging times are a bit vague at this point, but Vanderhall mentioned that the battery can recover to 80% in less than an hour when powered by DC fast charging.
While the Brawley isn`t street legal, its $34,950 price tag is accessible to those who want to get off the road on weekends. Head to Vanderhall USA to book one for $100 today. In other new automobiles, the first Tesla Cybertruck will have a four-motor variant, Musk says. It`s a funny video from Little Sahara, Utah, but doesn`t tell us anything about the Brawley. Fortunately, Vanderhall`s website is much more accommodating. While other models aren`t mentioned, the website tells us that the Brawley GTS won`t be road legal (it doesn`t even have airbags) and will produce 404 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. It will have 35-inch tires wrapped around 18-inch wheels and will have 22-inch travel with internal bypass shock absorbers. The cabin is completely sealed and has a filter to keep the air clean.
