MW Motors Spartan EV 2.0 Design and Features:
The Spartan EV 2.0, utilizing Force Gurkha’s chassis and body shell, shares similarities in design with the Gurkha.

The interior, however, boasts a fully digital instrument console, enhancing the modern appeal.
Promising outstanding on and off-road capabilities, the Spartan 2.0 comes equipped with a powerful single electric motor delivering 174 hp and an impressive 793 lb-ft of torque. The 4×4 capability, along with front and rear locking differentials and regenerative braking, positions it as a compelling choice for adventure seekers.

With a 61 kWh (57.4 kWh usable) battery, the Spartan 2.0 offers a range of approximately 150 miles. Charging is made convenient with DC charging rates of up to 90 kW, allowing for a 20% to 80% charge in just 36 minutes. The Spartan 2.0 aims to cater to daily commuting needs with its ideal range for the average workweek.
