Metaltech creates electric armored golf car for urban combat

What really looks like a golf cart for Batman is really a compact urban combat armored electric-vehicle by Metaltech Motor Bodies called the Anti-Terrorist Assault Cart (ATAC). The ATAC was unveiled at an Indian arms fair, which was inspired by the Nov. 2008 terror attacks.

The ATAC’s main objective is to be able to maneuver down hallways and fit into elevators inside buildings that are under attack. Metaltech claims it can shield two fully-armed soldiers from small-arms fire and grenade blasts while offering four ports from where they can return fire.

The ATAC weighs less than 1,100 pounds and has a top speed of 15 mph, which should be plentiful for hotel corridors. On a full-charge, the ATAC can provide 6 hours of driving. Metaltech has set the price of the ATAC at 2 million rupees (around $43,000 USD).
