Polaris unveiled the RANGER EV Li-Ion – first new EV resulting from their acquisition of Brammo

Ranger EVEarlier this year, Polaris bought the electric motorcycle maker Brammo. A few weeks ago, we wrote about Vicotry, which is a Polaris brand, unveiling the Empulse TT. As we explained, the TT is pretty much just a rebranding of Brammo’s own Empulse R, but rebranding aside, last week, Polaris unveiled the first all-new electric vehicle resulting from the acquisition of Brammo : the RANGER EV Li-Ion Polaris Pursuit Camo.

Polaris was already offering electric off-road vehicles, but equipped with lead-acid batteries. The Ranger EV Li-Ion is powered by Brammo’s Li-Ion drivetrain – allowing for a range of “up to 50 miles”.

The 462 lbs vehicle has a 1500 lbs towing capacity and is capable of carrying a total payload of 1000 lbs. Of course, any payload will affect the range, hence why the company advertising the range as “up to 50 miles”.

It’s not cheap. The vehicle starts at $22,999 or about twice as much as its lead-acid battery-powered counterpart. Polaris says it will be available in the US starting next month.
