The Model One ATV which is an all electric, all terrain vehicle is touted as the the world's first "Earth Utility Vehicle". A creation of Barefoot Motors, which as you might have seen form the video, has Mythbuster legend, Jamie Hyneman as design engineer. Their goal was to create a vehicle designed for working in nature that would be eco-friendly while still providing needed power.
