Ziesel, the Amazing Mini-Tank Is Available, Prices Announced

When Jan from Mattro Mobility Revolutions sent me the first email today and it read something related to the “Ziesel”, it took me a couple of minutes to recollect where had I heard the name before. And when the memory was restored, a broad smile shone on my face, especially as Jan announced me that the company started delivering their amazing off-road vehicle to customers.

So basically, we’re dealing with a very beautiful dream which came true and is now making its way to eager customers. The Ziesel (German for ground squirrel) is a two-track electric vehicle with an all-purpose design. It can serve as a nifty leisure machine, but it will also work very hard. And to make things even better, the Ziesel feels at home in the snow, on rocky ground, on wet, muddy trails, sand and you-name-it. However, it will not swim, float or fly.

The Mattro Ziesel is powered by two 4,4 kW hub motors with the peak power increasing as the battery packs of the various trims does, and ranging between 12 and 18 kW. Depending on the model, the 96V li-ion battery can store between 6.3 kWh and 10.8 kWh, and each trim comes with an automatic heating system for operation in low temperature, and a monitoring function.

A highly-advanced machine, the Ziesel is also loaded with an intelligent input-analysis joystick, full-time redundant safety checks for the entire system, self-diagnostics and error-handling, with even multiple driver profiles being available.

With the weight influenced by the battery choice, the Ziesel tips the scales anywhere between 250 and 300 kg (552-662 lbs). The cheapest Ziesel is €19,980 ($27,510) while the top version sets you back with €23,890 ($32,895). Rentals and multiple accessories are of course available, please check the PDF after the jump.
