The Overland-E Gen2 wants to be a rad all-terrain EV

With a claimed 750-mile range, the Gen2 would be available in ‘Urban’ or ‘Explorer’ trims

Published: 24 Mar 2022

This is the Overland-E Gen2, a car that its makers describe as “a ground-up designed, electric all-terrain vehicle”.

Looks like it could be a fun little way to get around, doesn’t it? Overland-E has some form with this type of thing too – founder Arron Rawding has been building similar-looking, air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle-based Overlanders since 2017.

There aren’t too many technical details available for the new Overland-E just yet, although apparently the plan is for a 750-mile range on a single charge. And that’s not a typo. 

No word on what size or type of battery will provide such a humongous range, and we don’t know whether the Gen2 would get two- or four-wheel drive. Looks good, at least.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why there are two slightly different cars up there – you’ll be able to have your Overland-E in either ‘Urban’ or ‘Explorer’ trim. They’re both fairly self-explanatory, with the former getting rear seats and “a more refined, luxurious interior” and the latter equipped with a winch, a fully waterproof interior and many spotlights.
