For those who came in late, Bremach, the Italian auto company, specialized in churning out rugged work trucks since the late 1950s is yet again in news. This time for all the right reasons. Bremach trucks are similar to the Unimog trucks from Germany. That means it builds no-nonsense trucks and completely workaholic machines.
Now, Bremach, has come out with its latest bad-ass machine which the have christened as T.Rex after the dinosaur which had spread terror on the face of earth, when it was very much in existence. But, Bremach T.Rex is an electric vehicle. The shape and design of the T.Rex is nothing like what you had visualized, but completely radical and butch.
The Bremach T. Rex is powered by electric technology, the same way that can be seen in Tesla Roadster, the EV sportscar. Th only difference being the output of the torque and power the T.Rex pumps out. The T. Rex’s electric motor provides 100 kW of power at 0 rpm, with a claimed 150-mile range even under work conditions. Bremach will also warranty the powertrain for 30,000 miles or three years.
Well for those who are a little skeptic of the electric vehicles and its range, Bremach has ready answers for them also. In the form of traditional 6.0-liter gasoline-fired Chevrolet V8 with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic cog box. Even with the big-bore Chevy mill, Bremach claims the truck will achieve 20 mpg on the highway. For those who like to ride the middle line, there are compressed natural gas and hybrid options available as well. All of these powertrain options are available in a two- or four-door hardtop or a two-door convertible.
The T. Rex was designed to be as capable as possible while staying extremely fuel and space efficient. Partly by leaving the truck’s spaceframe skeleton exposed, Bremach’s designers were able to jam three seats into the T. Rex’s narrow cab, which the company claims will withstand five Gs of force. Bremach says that’s two Gs more than most of the competition… we’ll have to take their word for it. The price for all this is fairly steep, with a loaded EV version of the T. Rex hitting the register at just over $120,000. Awesome don’t come cheap.
