wheel electric motors
The KTM AX was a concept created by students and staff
at FH Joanneum University in Austria. The AX was one of
six concepts created by the university in collaboration
with KTM, the Austrian motorcycle and sportscar manufacturer.
Designed by Markus Klug and Lukas Fuchs, the KTM AX is
a radical off-road vehicle which uses the experience KTM
has building successful motocross bikes and translates
it into a four-wheeled vehicle. The AX also uses the purist
nature of the KTM
X-Bow as inspiration for the angular and minimalist
Powering the KTM AX is a hybrid propulsion system which
utilizes four in-wheel electric motors to drive the wheels.
With individually steerable wheels, massive ground clearance,
reinforced tires and long travel suspension the AX would
offer superb off-road capability and agility.
The frame of the KTM AX consists of a lightweight spaceframe
structure into which the individual components are placed.
The built in rollover protection is an additional safety
feature for the two occupants.
