Survival 101: Vehicles

So how about that Mayan Apocalypse? Even though 2012 didn’t end with the bang that we were all (somewhat) worried about, there were probably some people out there preparing for the worse. Whether the end of civilization meant unforgiving climates, desolate seas, or an ultimate battle for survival, people are more than likely to search for areas that are at least bearable. How would they get there? With the right vehicle.

 

A good feature for any end-of-the-world vehicle to have is good traction, who knows how the terrain might end up. A vehicle that can stand up (literally) to broken roads, cluttered highways, and harsh landscapes would be a definitive advantage of getting to safe areas.

 

As for staying comfortable while driving, a working cooling and heating system is a must. It’s a toss up between a glacial freeze and a solar heat wave when it comes to the end of the world. You’re not expecting warm, vacation whether. Despite the temperature extremes, some compensation from either a heater or air conditioning would probably help days more bearable.

One feature that many people already consider an important factor when buying a vehicle is fuel efficiency—it’s just as important when you’re in survival mode.

 

What vehicle would you choose to help you survive the end of the world?
