Polaris launches all-electric utility vehicle

Polaris is launching an electric version of its heavy-duty Pro XD utility vehicle for applications in construction, equipment rental and industry.

The Pro XD Kinetic vehicle – a heavier duty version of its Ranger electric utility truck – uses a 14.9kWh Lithium-Ion battery to provide 140lb-ft (190Nm) of instant torque and the ability to tow up to 2,500lbs (1,133kg) and haul up to 1,250lbs (566kg). It has a range of up to 45 miles (72.4km) on a single charge.

The vehicle will make its deput at the ARA Show for the rental sector in New Orleans, USA, on 19 to 21 February.

Polaris told IRN that customers in the US and Canada can order now for shipments starting in June.

Charging is via a standard 110V wall outlet or generator at remote jobsites, and it is also compatible with 220V fast charging. The electric powertrain is supplied by Zero Motorcycles through its exclusive 10 year partnership with Polaris.

The manufacturer said the electric model will have “minimal maintenance requirements”, with scheduled maintenance costs estimated to be 60% lower than for equivalent diesel or gas-powered vehicles. There is no requirement to change oil, replace filters or spark plugs, or maintain the clutch.

The battery is designed to last the vehicle’s lifetime and comes with a five-year warranty from Polaris.

“Going all-electric with the professional-grade Pro XD UTV empowers customers to meet sustainability obligations without sacrificing capabilities,” said Aaron Stegemann, vice president, Polaris Commercial.

He said Polaris had listened to customers pain points; “With the introduction of the Pro XD Kinetic, we’re keeping the features our customers love and rely on from the Pro XD family…while addressing the ever-growing environmental, operational and government requirements for EVs.”
