Not syncro or VW but something a bit different for this year.

Looks like a cool idea, can't see where it says they source the power from, and how they get the power to it (have batteries to swap out at regular intervals?)

Why not build your own Syncro version, these kits have been around for years:

Volkswagen VW Bus, Type 2, Samba EV Conversion Kit, Regen Brakes, AC Motor 1965-1986, EV West - Electric Vehicle Parts, Components, EVSE Charging Stations, Electric Car Conversion Kits

Electric Vehicle Motors - Our Vehicles


Dakar "nuts" may be interested in this.


I found the engineering and organisation needed to go to Dakar fascinating.
