How can an EV save your life when giant insects attack? California-based electric vehicle manufacturer Epic has an answer in a new promo touting the off-road ability of its Amp ATV, a rugged, all-electric four-wheeler that features "silent mode."

In the spot, two hunters hit the trails to test out Epic's four-wheel drive side-by-side when they stumble upon a eerie human skull. Not willing to pass on the chance to inspect the skull, the hunting duo's curiosity summons a human-sized wasp, which comes to slay the both of them.

The hunters make a mad dash for the electric ATV and try to outrun and outgun the killer wasp. Did the duo survive? Was the electric-only Amp ATV up to the task? To find out, check out Epic's out-of-this-world promo after the jump.

      Weird commercial, people who care about the environment and spray bug spray all over outside...? I guess it is like someone who drives electric to keep the air clean but forges new trails through the woods that cause erosion. The guy should have thrown the bug spray in the air and shot it with the gun to blow it up before it hit the ground. Not that hard to do and looks much better than hitting a stationary object on the ground.

      A buggy might well be the worst suited vehicle to electric drive ATM IMHO...

      It looks like they had fun making the video. Why not? There was an article recently about a lightcycle. Someone probably had fun building that too.

      They can't go far cuz they cannot get a big charge struck in the wood alone like that and they cannot find a plug far in the wild to recharge, this is a come-back to neanderthal ages as i can see. This vehicle is mainly a neiborood or zone 51 short range vehicle for the elderly or madscientists.
