Unplugging your work ATV from the wall outlet might feel odd to many, but it’s becoming quite common in some work circles.
Whether to meet increasing environmental standards or just to be as stealthy as possible for recreational purposes, electric vehicles (EV) have found favor with landscapers and municipal fleet managers over the last few years.
One of the EVs that has gained considerable ground in the work-oriented ATV market is the two-passenger Ranger EV. It has all the features and benefits of the traditional Polaris Ranger line, but with a bank of batteries for power instead of a gas or diesel engine.
The 2015 Ranger EV has been restyled to match its fossil-fuel-burning brethren. The 30 horsepower AC drive is now based on the newer, longer Ranger 900 platform with a MacPherson front suspension and IRS rear, ten inches of ground clearance and nine-inches of travel at both ends. It rides smoother than the previous Ranger 800 model.
With the new chassis comes a 20-percent increase in towing capacity, up to 1,500 pounds, and a transmission that has on-demand all-wheel-drive with Turf Mode.
Payload capacity in the bed remains at 500 pounds. When it comes to being kind to the environment, fit for work, and sneaky stealthy, it’ll be hard to beat one of these new Ranger EV 4x4s.
