Enters Low Speed Vehicle Market
Minneapolis, January 6, 2010 – Polaris
Defense today announced the introduction of
their Low Speed Vehicle, the Polaris EV LSV,
designed for on and off-road use.
“We are excited to introduce the Polaris EV
LSV to the military market,” said Mark
McCormick, managing director of Polaris Defense.
“The features and superiority of our product
will greatly benefit applications that require
vehicles with on and off-road capabilities.”
Based off the RANGER EV platform, Polaris’
first off-road, electric vehicle, the Polaris EV
LSV includes the necessary features including
horn, turn signals, automotive-quality
windshield and rear view mirror, for on-road
use. With its 30 horsepower electric motor,
quiet operation, 50 mile range and 25 mph top
speed, the Polaris EV LSV is the most-capable
LSV available for military use. 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
for any application.
The Polaris EV LSV was built to be tough and
reliable. Its 1,000-pound payload capacity,
1,250 lbs. of towing and On-Demand True
All-Wheel Drive for harsh terrain makes it a
strong work partner; and its exclusive 48-volt,
AC Induction motor provides high performance
with low maintenance for maximum reliability.
For recharging ease, the unit can be charged
using a standard 110 volt AC outlet.
Polaris Defense also is offering the Polaris
EV LSV to all Federal Government Agencies.
Available colors include Red, Blue and Green.
