Terraquad is a derivative of the already established Quadski platform. It has a side by side seating configuration, roof bars, and a rear load deck, similar in concept to a typical UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle).
The integration of HSA technology however, provides a vehicle platform that can also use waterways, so can access many more areas than an ordinary UTV. The potential applications for this versatile platform in many differing roles are significant.
The Terraquad is still a prototype.The unique drivetrain design uses a single engine to power the 2WD system and the water jet for travel on water. A selectable power takeoff allows power to be directed only to the wheels or the water jet to avoid unnecessary power losses.
The chassis features independent front and rear suspension with an electrically powered system that retracts the wheels for water travel, eliminating drag to allow efficient planing and excellent marine handling.The Terraqua is powered by a 1297cc 4-stroke, 4 cylinder engine which runs the 6-speed w/ auto & manual shifting Transmission. The high speed of the Terraqua on land is 50mph and 45mph on water./Gibbs Amphibians
