2021 Top Introductions: Zeal Motor's Fat Truck amphibious vehicle
The builders of the Fat Truck amphibious vehicle brought a new model to the market in 2021 responding to demand from the utility industry and others that wanted to move material in rough terrain. Their solution? The Fat Truck 2.8P, equipped with a pickup bed. Designed to haul up to 1,000 kg (2,200 pounds) with very low ground pressure through rugged, wet, swampy areas that would sink other vehicles, the 2.8P can also be fitted with water tanks, sprayers, firefighting gear, a small service crane, and other tools. On solid ground the truck can travel up to 40 km/h (25 mph), in water up to 5 km/h (3 mph), and it can climb muddy slopes up to 75 percent grade.
