The look of All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) hasn’t really changed over the years, but CF Moto recently gave the market a glimpse of where things might be heading.

Their electric Concept Evolution A has been built to meet a changing customer culture and a need to evolve to meet new directions. Like the automotive industry, the company suggests that it is looking at different propulsion methods, including an all-electric option to provide a zero-emission alternative.

Featuring an all new chassis design to house the electric motor and drivetrain, the concept is said to be configured to allow the rider to choose different power modes and suspension on the move. 

The Evolution will also include smart phone integration, that will allow custom displays for navigation, vehicle tracking, notifications, social media interactions and of course, phone calls.
