AT38 conversion package for Toyota Hilux
AT38 Polar Conversion
With the AT38 modification the Hilux is ready to tackle most snow and ice conditions in Antarctica. The tire pressure can be adjusted to changing conditions, from soft snow to hard ice. Ice screws give the vehicle great traction on blue ice and the softness of the tires smoothens out uneven terrain providing a comfortable ride. While the capabilities have been improved the service and running cost is still similar to a standard Hilux.
The Hilux AT38 is a great vehicle for most coastal areas in Antarctica and is considerably less expensive than the Hilux AT44. Based on our experience, expected fuel consuption is 0.15-0.3 litres pr. kilometer in coastal areas.
Toyota Hilux AT38 was used to drive to the Magnetic North Pole with the British TV show Top Gear in 2007 where it carried the film crew 1400 kilometers, over sea ice, bolder fields and number of small islands. Toyota Hilux AT38 will be stationed at SANEA, the South African research station in Antarctica from 2011.
