The Canadian Potential Motors intends to sell its own factory-built off-road car. This is a difficult task given the abundance of vehicles from Rivian, Ram, GM, and other manufacturers that may be deemed off-road vehicles. With its Adventure-1 electric off-road RV, the firm that specializes in vehicle management systems for electric off-road vehicles will try to do this.

The Adventure-1 doesn’t quite belong in a pre-existing category. It resembles the Daihatsu Hijet, the Canoo, the Volkswagen ID Buzz, the Hyundai Staria camper van, or the off-road-oriented Canoo. Its upscale electric overland buddies may include the GMC Hummer EV and the Rivian Adventure Van.

For new and seasoned off-roaders alike who want to safely explore isolated locations, it is considered as a big-windowed, agile electric small camper van or adventure van that symbolizes the future of off-grid electric overlanding. Adventure-1 perhaps takes RV fans in traveling solo with a dirt bike inside or taking the whole family on an expedition.

Adventure-1 is comparably narrow to recreational side-by-sides such the Yamaha Wolverine, Honda Talon, Polaris General, and Can-Am Commander, at only 64 inches wide. Its 178-inch length is half a foot longer than the Ford Bronco Sport’s 105-inch wheelbase. The Adventure-1 is proportionately long but skinny ideal for tight routes.

The Spacious Interior of The Adventure-1 is Dazzling

Adventure -1’s appearance conveys its off-road character. Its design enables it to compete with all of the off-roaders with an approaching angle of 40 degrees, a departing angle of 45 degrees, and a breakover angle of 29 degrees.

It boasts a robust front skid plate, front and rear recovery hooks, a flush front winch, and sturdy body protection to defend against rocks and debris. The roof includes a deep built-in roof rack storage section with tie-down features. It stores a spare tire, recovery boards, and probably whatever else you want to store up there instead of a raised roof rack configuration. To access the roof, use the three dents above the rear wheels as a ladder.

Access to the spacious interior of the Adventure-1 is provided by a large single rear hatch that opens up nice and high. This interior features a built-in full-size bed, a slide-out shielded kitchen, and lots of storage space. Adventure-1 accommodates four guests and has two beds. The dash area seems simple and basic. It just has a few large buttons, a tablet-like screen, and a digital gauge cluster.

Adventure-1 will be extremely agile through tough off-road terrain.

Here are some additional specs:

  • 604 horsepower
  • 737 ft-lbs. torque
  • 100 miles of off-road range
  • 2,550 liters interior volume (90 cubic feet)
  • 12.9″ ground clearance
  • 40-degree approach angles
  • 45-degree departure angle
  • 29-degree breakover angle
  • Dimensions: 64″ wide x 178″ long (height TBC)
  • 105″ wheel base

The Adventure 1 starts at an MSRP of $136,600
