Swincar USA west-coast Tour

Swincar USA west-coast tour

 

The Swincars’ West Coast debut was a big success, generating a lot of interest and enthusiasm for our innovative, eco-friendly off-road electric vehicle.   We put the vehicles through some tough and varied terrain, and they performed extremely well.  California fans of the Swincar will be excited to know that we are working to close on potential partnerships for dealers and touring fleets – we can’t wait to get test driving locations set up out west!

Over 21 days, ASI owner Patrick and Senior Adventure Guide Chris put 5,600 miles on our truck and trailer across 15 states, and in California alone we stopped in 8 cities to show off what our Swincars can do. We got to drive the Swincars in a huge variety of terrain, including iconic locations like the Bonneville Salt Flats, steep mountain trails near the continental divide, beautiful OHV parks like Hollister Hills, Prairie City and Wildomar, on private motocross tracks, ranches and vineyards, and even backyards and residential neighborhoods!     Our team thoroughly enjoyed the trip and made some great new friends despite historic heat waves, a global pandemic, multiple wildfires, a flat tire in the desert, and two hurricanes in our path.

Thanks to those who welcomed us during this Swincar USA west-coast tour: many went way out of their way to meet with us for test drives! The enthusiasm on the west of the U.S. for electric vehicles and low-impact ecotourism is unmatched anywhere in the U.S., and we were truly impressed with the overwhelming number of designated Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Areas, Bureau of Land Management properties, vineyards, ranches, beaches and generally-perfect places for Swincar driving.

The Swincar tandem in the U.S.A.

If you haven’t been on a driving tour with us, this is a great time to book an excursion and get out of the house. Our new Swincar Tandem back country tour is a fun and exciting new way to explore nature. Totally silent, powerful and nimble, the Swincar has set a new standard for off-road driving capabilities.  We expect to start our tours up in late May, once our partner  is able to re-open their trails.  Come drive one for yourself, or take a tour as the passenger in our new Tandem!

  We had a lot of fun unboxing it – check the video below!   Lead Adventure Guides Clark Dunn and Madison Dunlap test drive our new Tandem Swincar in the U.S.A., it arrived in mid-March to Chattanooga, TN. This impressive vehicle got a lot of attention before we had to close our tours for Covid-19, and already made its first trail ride with touring guests (huge grins from the 14 year old passenger!).

In case you’ve been thinking about getting your own Swincar, we’ve just ordered more vehicles.   We’ll have both tandems and single seaters arriving for July pick up in Chattanooga, or delivery around the country.  This shipment is likely to sell out before it even arrives – place your order soon!  Call us for more info at (423) 591-5654

Swincar Tandem Purchase!

Swincar Tandem Purchase!

We had the First Swincar tandem Sale in the USA. Bill Helman, known by many as the “WooFDriver”, is an animal advocate and outdoorsman who has devoted his life to dogs.  Bill has owned huskies for two decades and has developed his own brand of Urban Mushing, incorporating specialized equipment, one-of-a-kind bikes, and his own sense of fun. He calls this “WooFDriving.” 

Bill has developed a range of vehicles for Urban Mushing but needed something that would enable him to take another person along with him and his dogs on their adventures. He has previously used a variety of electric recumbent bicycles but also found that they were not capable enough on difficult terrain.

Enter Swincar! We are proud to announce we have delivered to Bill the first Swincar Tandem in the USA, and can’t wait to see how he puts it to great use with his huskies.

You can read more about Bill and Urban Mushing on his website: billhelman.com and follow him on Instagram @woofdriveronly1ever

Interested in buying your own Swincar, or just want to try it for yourself? ASI has a couple of vehicles now in inventory and can custom order as needed! This is the perfect season to take a test ride – SWINTOBER! Come out and experience Chattanooga’s outdoors in a whole new way.

Swincar goes solar

Swincar goes solar

The Swincar electric off-road vehicle can now be charged with Solar Panels!  This October, a customer driving a production vehicle equipped with mobile solar panels crossed a desert using 100% solar energy: a 500 miles, 12 days of “off-the grid down under” adventure …Swincar goes solar! 

The Simpson Desert is located in a uninhabited part of Australia, and covers an area of more than 100,000 square miles. ​Its extreme desert climate makes living (and driving!) conditions particularly difficult.

Take a look at the innovative solar charging panels used to re-charge the vehicle.  This adaptation really makes the Swincar fully autonomous – no searching for electric outlets to power up!

Off-Road driving for everyone

Off-Road driving for everyone

Yes! off-roading for everyone…

2020 was the ‘year of accessibility’ for Swincar. The year saw the introduction of so many new developments for drivers with adaptive needs, we thought it would be worthwhile to do a quick summary of everything you can do to make your Swincar work for you, or someone you know that may need to customize their controls.

Original mobility features:
1. The pendulum design and articulating swingarms keeps you upright and driving with ALL FOUR WHEELS ON THE GROUND.
(Disclaimer: Rollovers are still possible – drivers with limited mobility should take any and all relevant precautions – but they are FAR less likely in Swincars than in any other off-road vehicle on the market.)

2. Every vehicle comes equipped with hand-controlled braking and acceleration.  Also, the thumb throttle can easily be moved to the right or left side of the formula one-type steering wheel.

3. Telescoping tie rods on the swing arms make for easy transfers to and from wheelchairs.

4. The reclining rallye seat has a deeper seat pocket than our standard seat, with higher hip guards – really minimizes potential to slip out of the seat for those with less muscle control below the waist. 

If you’ve been with us for a while, the features listed above are old news for the Swincar. These functions have been a part of Swincar since the beginning, and they work really well for drivers with good upper-body mobility. The goal in 2020 was to open Swincar driving to peoplewithout full upper-body mobility!

So here’s the new stuff:

  1. The Push-Pull Steering Module

Great for folks without the finger strength or dexterity to safely operate the standard hand brakes and throttle. This option allows drivers to control their speed by pulling and pushing the steering wheel towards and away from them.

6. Power Steering
This option is going to significantly reduce how much work your shoulders have to do to control your Swincar. The power steering module makes for an easier driving experience and even reduces the “degrees to turn,” which means you don’t need to turn the steering wheel quite as far to execute sharp turns.

  1. Enhanced Battery Gauge

For drivers with reduced mobility, running out of power out in the woods is a true safety concern.  Swincar’s new enhanced Battery Monitor gives the driver a large visual display showing how much power is remaining, to help ensure you head to a power supply for a re-charge in plenty of time. 

8. Joy Stick Configuration
This option is for our off-road travelers with very little upper-body mobility. You don’t have to worry about a steering wheel, you don’t have to worry about hand brakes. Just a joystick. It’s the simplicity of a powerchair, with all the capability and independence of a Swincar. So it’s way more power and way less chair.

Everybody’s different, and the engineers at Swincar are never done tinkering, but these developments are going to redefine mobility and outdoor recreation for ALOT of people. We couldn’t be more excited to get more people into our eco-friendly and highly adaptive off-roader!

Give us a call or shoot us a message if you want more details about some of the new options!

Guide Story: Swincars with Chris Taylor

Hi fellow adventurers! I’m Chris, and I moved to Chattanooga and joined the ASI team at the beginning of July. The Swincar guide job -or Adventure Guide- has been one wild ride after the next and it is a great reminder that there is always something new to discover in the outdoor industry. 

If, like me, you are looking to discover exciting new technologies and beautiful new spaces to play outside, you’ve got to check out the Swincar. Think, four-wheeler meets dune buggy meets spider, all wrapped up in a sustainably-built, all-electric package. And they. Are. Powerful. Just last week my co-guide, Reilly, and I digitally mapped and timed over 14 miles of trails at Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center. We do almost all of our tours there, and every now and then, it is important that we get out and just explore. You know…for research.

We made sure to “investigate” every rock, fallen tree, hill, and hairpin curve, testing every obstacle to maximize for critical “wow” factors and fun variables. I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that we know all the best places to both practice Swincar basics, and to really test the capabilities of the cars. Big thanks for Reflection Riding for giving us the perfect place to explore!

Here’s to new discoveries!
