Winter is just around the corner and we plan to get out as much as possible and enjoy the white powder this season. Of course the fun would be triple on board the futuristic mean machine you see here, called the Rapid Deployment Snow Vehicle ($NA).
Created by industrial designer Juan Garcia Mansilla, this concept vehicle has a fascinating shape. Its perfectly aerodynamic body is powered by a traction system designed to adapt to different snow conditions. Basically, you have 2 large wheels, each with two different sized paddles: small (for hard, icy surfaces) and big (for deep snow). The 2 seater is intended to function as a high speed snowmobile that can go “across Antarctica but could also climb up a mountain”, helping out in rescue missions, medical emergencies or even used in sport applications. It sure looks like a great ride, just like the Snow Crawler, but for now the RDSV is just a concept.
