Electric Hawk 4x4 tested in the Tatra Mountains

 Sokół 4x4 (Hawk 4x4) - the first Polish fully electric vehicle created by eco-conversion, electrification of an off-road car Land Rover Defender, presented its capabilities in the demanding area of the Tatra National Park.

According to the owners of the company, Innovation AG, talks are underway at the highest level on the use of the Sokół 4x4 in the service of the Tatra National Park.

The Sokół 4x4 was created on the basis of the Land Rover Defender 110 famous for its durability. As a car with an electric drive, it has an automatic transmission, a 300hp electric motor with a range of approximately 200 to 300 kilometers. 

The originator of the Sokół 4X4 project is the entrepreneur, innovator and rally driver Albert Gryszczuk, who in 2018 developed a self-supporting off-road platform for individual development, equipped with a 100% electric drive adapted to driving in difficult terrain conditions.

An important feature of the eco-conversion, which applies to the tested cars, is the possibility to prepare an electric vehicle for specific orders of a given entity. This has a great value because in todays electric car market we have vehicles with standard solutions, for a wide range of users, and this means that they usually do not meet specialized requirements. 

This technology is being offered to the large corporations or organizations, like national parks or mines, ready to convert their fleet of specialized internal combustion vehicles into electric ones.
