Based on a 4x4 of Russian origin, the UAZ Hunter, the new Spartan of MW Motors is a fully electrified model, which tries to offer all the advantages of a robust all-terrain vehicle for any work with an electric propulsion with its good torque and non-pollution. The Spartan is Spartan, because the idea is not to offer an unnecessary luxury, but a vehicle for any more complex and complicated work, which requires four-wheel drive. And because it uses a platform that is manufactured in large quantities, its final price is more adjusted. The reader of this our website knows the brand for its unique electric car Luka EV, which stands out for its slightly retro design.
MW Motors from Czech Republic announce the MWM Spartan. The Spartan range of Military Style SUVs are based on the legendary 4×4 Hunter platform provided by UAZ, Russia, offering a 100% electric version. With battery packs from 56kWh to 90kWh & a suitably powerful electric drivetrain, the Spartan is the first electric car to come to market offering real world 4×4 capability. Since 1941, UAZ have been improving & perfecting their off-road capabilities. The combination of MW Motors electrification technology & the legendary UAZ 4×4 platform is a perfect match.
MWM Spartan perfectly describes this range of hard working, practical, minimalist, affordable & easy to fix vehicles. The range is designed for customers abandoned by large car manufacturers. Real 4×4 enthusiasts, the farming community, forestry workers, extreme activity fans & under-ground mining companies care about rugged, raw performance, not fancy interiors or accessories. Not everyone wants a high cost, high maintenance stallion. Some people need a workhorse. The Spartan range fills this niche.
Environmental & economic sustainability go hand in hand. Other companies like to build mega factories but these have severe economic & environmental impacts. All that concrete & steel cause mega emissions. The UAZ / MW Motors co-operation allows for the use of existing world class UAZ factories & existing MW Motors finishing facilities in Europe. A proven vehicle platform from UAZ is married with cutting edge electrification technology from MW Motors.
This clever use of resources eliminates the carbon footprint associated with building new facilities, guarantees economic sustainability & delivers an affordable price for the end customer.
