According to Vanderhall's website, reservations will open on July 15 and delivery will begin in 2022.
So, what is the Vanderhall Brawley, exactly?
It's most likely a UTV, which are bigger cousins of ATVs with car-like side-by-side seats.
The Brawley, according to Vanderhall, would include car-like features including an enclosed interior with an air filter and climate control.
According to Vanderhall, a Bluetooth music system and a heated steering wheel will also be offered.
Four independently regulated electric motors will deliver a total of 404 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
Off-road capabilities should be a strong suit for the Brawley.
It will include 35-inch tyres (the same size as a 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor's standard tyres), four-wheel steering, and internal-bypass shocks with 22 inches of suspension travel, according to Vanderhall.
The business aims to sell battery packs with capacities of 40 and 60 kilowatt-hours, with a potential range of 200 miles.
According to Vanderhall, the packs employ nickel cobalt manganese (NMC) pouch cells and incorporate a battery-conditioning mechanism to boost cold-weather performance.
DC fast-charging will be available on the Brawley, allowing for an 80 percent charge in under an hour, according to the firm.
The Vanderhall Navarro, a similar-looking electric off-roader that the firm teased earlier, seems to be renamed the Brawley.
Vanderhall mentioned comparable characteristics for the Navarro, as well as a debut date of 2022.
With the Edison 2 three-wheeler, Vanderhall has dabbled in electric propulsion, but the company's previous vehicles have all utilised internal-combustion engines, including 1.4-liter and 1.5-liter turbo-fours.
