the ax is a radical off-road four-wheel vehicle concept which links ktm’s motocross competence to the purist design of the x-bow. hybrid propulsion combined with four individually steerable electric engines, huge ground clearance, reinforced tyres and a generously sized suspension offer maximum traction and unlimited agility.

I bet it would cost even more, the x-bow is already $80K

It will never be built. Its only a concept. Remember the Original Chevy volt?
Or the concept Ford Escape hybrid? They make the wicked cool concepts then when production hits it is just some plain Jane crap just like everything else.

There was a buggy by VW about 5 years ago, I cant remember the name but it almost went to production but they scraped it last minute. i wish I could remember the name it was actually more of a roadster type but very cool and was set around $24k

I think since its KTM it may actually make it to production but out of reach for most middle income earners.

Whats the wheel stance on that thing? 10 feet? Good luck getting down any trails with that baby. Another reason it will never be made.
On the other hand it looks just like one of my R/C cars. I always wanted a life size one!

This thing would only be worthwhile if it were made street-legal.
