Polaris Industries has developed a low-speed, on-road and off-road electric vehicle that it hopes will attract added business from the military and the federal government.
Based off the Ranger EV platform, Polaris’ first off-road, electric vehicle, the Polaris EV LSV, includes the necessary on-road features, including turn signals, an automotive-quality windshield and rear view mirror.
The EV LSV has a 30hp electric motor that has a 50-mile range and can hit a top speed of 25 mph. The unit features three modes: “High” for speed, “Low” for towing and hauling, and “Max” for maximum range to ensure the best use of power and battery life.
“The features and superiority of our product will greatly benefit applications that require vehicles with on and off-road capabilities,” Mark McCormick, managing director of Polaris Defense, said in a company press release.
The EV LSV has a 1,000-pound payload capacity, 1,250 pound of towing and On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive for harsh terrain.
