Urban ATV Concept

Designer Angela Martin has created a concept quad that she calls the “Urban ATV.”

The compact four-wheeler is meant to be eco-friendly and is powered by an electric engine. It features car-like tires with no off-road tread to speak off and unlike most ATVs it is designed to seat a rider and passenger comfortably.

Whether it’s a quick trip to the store for a gallon of milk or a short commute to work, the Urban ATV is easier and less intimidating to ride than an electric motorcycle and a lot friendlier to the environment than a car.

As with most concept vehicles, the Urban ATV’s chances of hitting the marketplace are fairly slim. But if it does one day find its way to a showroom floor, let’s all hope it doesn’t come in that color.
