The Bio-Inspired Ice Vehicle is a bioethanol-powered vehicle designed for transarctic travel. The vehicle was designed by Keiron Bradley, a Design Engineer for Lotus Engineering, for use on the Moon-Reagan Transarctic Expedition in November and December of 2010. The 1500 lb BIV, equipped with a 115 hp engine, can travel up to 84 mph on three skis, and can hold one passenger. The BIV travelled 3,600 miles across Antarctica, accompanied by two six-wheel-drive support vehicles.
Only two land based expeditions across Antarctica have every been achieved. A third expedition, the Moon Regan Transarctic Expedition, plans to attempt it by using three vehicles, one of which is the Winston Wong Bio-Inspired Ice Vehicle. It is essentially the “route-finder” for the other two vehicles which will be carrying members of the team as well as acting as mobile laboratories. It is bio-fueled and adapts to any and all harsh conditions of the arctic.
