Latest electric-powered utility vehicle impresses

The first thing you notice when you drive a Polaris Ranger EV, the worlds first true electric 4 x 4 utility vehicle, is the silence, explains the manufacturer. Then you cant fail to be impressed by the acceleration and the sheer smoothness of the ride. WhenPolaris first introduced the Ranger EV it set high standards for others to follow and the latest model in 2015 continues to innovate with enhanced styling and the addition of Pro-Fit accessory integration. The highly modular cab system offers a range of cab and windscreen options with high quality fit and finish and easy installation for superb ergonomics and refined comfort. 

TheRanger EV is not wanting for space, theres masses of it with the rear, tippingDump Box and Lock and Ride facility to carry tools and equipment safely and securely. Suspension travel has been increased and the on-demand True All-WheelDrive keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more traction, reverting back to two-wheel drive when you don’t. In 2WD the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that wont tear up the grass. Handling is nimble with a tight turning circle for great manoeuvrability.

A zero emissions vehicle that never needs any fuel and requires very little maintenance, the Ranger EV has a 30 hp electric motor from the 48 volt high efficiency AC-induction motor, for a top speed of 25 mph and towing capacity of567 kg. Its the ideal vehicle for working in noise-sensitive areas, tending parks, around animals, inside barns, horticultural growing areas, amenity areas, golf courses and estates. Styled with a purpose, the new headlight shape allows for an enhanced 50w beam spread so that at dawn or dusk you can navigate storage buildings more efficiently. At the end of the day the best way to test the abilities of the Ranger EV is to ask for a demonstration. Its an exhilarating experience.
