The Swincar is an electric off road vehicle designed, built and imported from France since 2017. The vehicle offers amazing wheel articulation for maximum traction on the trails as the seat rails act like a pendulum. In this experience guests will learn about the Swincar, ride along as a passenger and then take the controls as they drive in this very unique off road vehicle. At this time test drives include a NORA instructor and are for one participant at a time in a tandem Swincar.
