Polaris Industries Inc has introduced the pure electric RANGER EV Li-Ion Polaris Pursuit Camo that features an Lithium-ion battery. This is a result of the company’s acquisition from Brammo Inc. which is an electric vehicle manufacturer based in Oregon USA.
The RANGER EV offers more than three times of the total battery lifespan of traditional lead acid batteries. The battery pack offers a range of up to 50 miles (80 km) and is lighter by 210 kg (462 lbs) when compared to Polaris’ lead acid battery cousin.
The off-road EV features a 48-volt, high-efficiency, AC-induction motor. The driver can select from three driving modes: High Mode for everyday use, Low Mode for hard worl and Max Range Mode for getting maximum range. There’s also a new battery management controller that displays the accurate status of the batteries.
A Vehicle Control Module (VCM) makes the integration of accessories like Polaris Interactive Digital Display and Electronic Power Steering Kit easier to install. Onboard diagnostics makes servicing easier.
It pure electric off-road utility vehicle offers 37.8 L/10 gal of in-cab storage, a towing capacity of 680 kg/ 1500 lbs and payload carrying capacity of 453.6 kg/ 1000 lb. Polaris’ very own On-Demand True All-Wheel drive has also been incorporated in the vehicle to provide additional traction.
The front suspension features a MacPherson strut and the rear gets an indipendent setup that enables 10 inches of ground clearance ensuring the vehicle is at ease in difficult situations. The RANGER EV Li-Ion Polaris Pursuit Camo is set to join other electric vehicles in Polaris’ range and will become available at dealerships in September.
