Polaris Industries introduces a new line of Ranger mid-size electric UTVs that offer clean and green operation in addition to lower carbon emissions.
Key advantages of the new Ranger EV include quiet operation, zero requirement for fuel, low maintenance, tough performance and smooth riding among others. In addition to eliminating petrol costs, there is no hassle of calculating the emissions of the electric vehicle.
With a 30hp engine and 40.2 km/h top speed, Ranger EV electric vehicles operate cleanly and quietly with a 48V AC electric motor. The Alternating Current (AC) is more efficient for low maintenance and extends range to give high performance.
Ranger EVs offer one of the longest ranges in its class with an 11.7kW maximum-power battery pack and three-mode system. The High, Low and Max Range modes provide greater efficiency and overall performance because the rider can switch back and forth for maximum power or to achieve up to 80km range.
The electric vehicle can be charged by plugging a PURE Polaris quick charge kit into a 240V AC outlet.
The Polaris On Demand All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system automatically engages when more forward traction is required, reverting to 2WD automatically when AWD is no longer needed.
Extremely tight turns can be achieved by switching to 1-wheel drive Versatrac mode while minimising damage to sensitive terrain.
Similar to all Polaris off-road utility vehicles, Ranger EV electric vehicles also feature Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) with long suspension travel for a smooth ride.
The long-travel suspension gives a smooth ride with 20.3cm front travel, 22.9cm rear travel and 25.4cm of ground clearance, allowing the operator to clear the toughest of obstacles.
Ranger EV’s higher dump box with a 226kg capacity minimises the temptation for horses to remove feed with their hooves to lower injury risk to the operator, while allowing hauling and dumping of feed, mucking out stables and shifting landscaping materials among others.
Ranger EV electric vehicles also come with a high 567kg towing capacity and Lock & Ride cargo system to handle big jobs easily.
Heavy duty front end protection is ensured with inset headlights for minimised damage from rock chips and branches. Ranger EV also features dedicated vehicle tie down points and certified Roll-Over Protective Structure.
