Oh hell yes.
A group of German engineers converted a Tesla Model 3 into a hulking beast to take it off-roading.
As seen in an eight minute YouTube video, the gearheads spent four weeks adding giant chain tracks to the car, turning an otherwise pedestrian sedan into a six-ton, fully electric off-roading rampager.
As Elektrek points out, Teslas are popular conversions for off-road enthusiasts because of their powerful electric powertrains and monstrous amounts of torque — shout out to billionaire CEO Elon Musk for getting something right.
Although the "Real Life Guys" filmed their clip while speaking German, the English subtitles explain their work step-by-step.

If manufacturers see a viable market for building electric ATVS and other recreational vehicles they'll be more likely to create new products and spread the EV love farther and wider.
And electric Tesla tanks are just the tip of the off-road iceberg.
