That's pretty cool. I'd like to see it straddle a boulder before claiming it laughs at Jeeps, however. Its ground clearance is pretty low.

Garbage. The french need to stick to food and leave the engineering to everyone else.

Gotta be electric. There's no other power transmission to the wheels that can take that kind of X/Y travel.

Obviously you don't know that Bugatti from 1910-1945 designed and built cars which are still lusted after today. And don't forget Citroen, either. Decades ahead in the use of hydraulics in motor cars. And AirBus. They do engineer a few airplanes.

I think the leveling of the cabin is more impressive than the drive mechanism. Chain drive isn't all that exotic especially because I bet this thing has lock diffs all the time (or no diff at all).

Beats the heck out of a standard ATV as far as places it can go. Might not be real useful for hauling stuff yet.
