After spending half a decade developing and prototyping its inaugural offering, Utah’s Vanderhall Motor Works debuted its first model in 2016 with the Laguna, a three-wheeled roadster powered by a GM-sourced 1.4L turbocharged engine. And, after unveiling an additional four models in the subsequent years, the autocycle outfit has now pulled the cover off of its most unique offering to date, departing from its signature Morgan-style trikes to deliver a hardcore off-roader dubbed the “Brawley.”
Vanderhall’s second EV model, the fully-electric Brawley packs a 60kWh battery that offers up to 200-miles of autonomy on a single charge and is paired with four individually-controlled electric motors that put down 404hp and 480ft-lbs of torque Riding on custom 18” wheels shod in chunky 35” all-terrain tires, this American-made closed-cabin off-roader features a suspension setup with internal bypass shocks that offers nearly 2’ (or 22” to be exact) of travel fore and aft and a regenerative braking setup with a proprietary ABS system. The Brawley’s sealed and filtered cabin also boasts heating and AC, leather race seats, a Bluetooth-connected sound system, a minimalistic dash with eight aviation-style toggle switches, and a three-cluster gauge setup set behind a tri-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Vanderhaull Brawley will be available for preorder starting July 15.
