Developing an ATV that is suitable for all season off-road mobility might be pretty challenging. However, Alexei Mikhailov - an industrial designer from Humber College in Canada - has overcome this feat with the TrakRok Concept, a hybrid ATV that was a snowmobile initially, but ended up turning into a pretty impressive off roader.

The TrakRok ATV features two wheels in the front that are direct driven individually by electric motors,a s well as a direct driven independent track system used for all season applications that is also powered by high powered electric motors. The entire system is runs on sustainable renewable energy using hydrogen fuel cell technology. The fuel cells are situated in the center belly of the vehicle lowering the center of gravity and the fuel cell cluster is liquid cooled by two large radiator intakes in the front of the vehicle. Aside from menacing aesthetics, the intakes provide adequate cooling and in casing protection for the fuel cells from harsh environment.

The design mimics a shell-like rib cage which looks really cool. The only problem with this design is that it has about zero chance of ever making it to production. It’s too bad because we think this would actually have a lot of appeal.

Hmm, its seems that they have actually built this one, based on the pictures. Now I really want to see it in action, just to know how it would actually go .

I wonder what the whole point is for this one. I know that the threads would be very useful for a wide variety of terrain, but I really doubt if the wheels would actually work well alongside it.

Yes it actually looks like a snow mobile at all. But the style seems frustrating at all for it gives a different outcome for a ATV.

The design looks well, however, I don’t like the idea of making a motorcycle like this.
It would be better if they will come-up with a new designs. A very impressive and amazing designs that would attract many players to try this motorcycle.

This one definitely looks like the result of a forbidden relationship between an ATV and a snowmobile. But know what, this one actually looks good, if only they would get it built.
