Polaris® On-Road Division Expands Breeze™ Family of Products
Polaris Neighborhood Vehicles Launches 2-Passenger and Street-Legal Models

LEV Breeze

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.  May 18, 2010 – Continuing a tradition built on more than 55 years of off-road and on-road products that have earned the reputation of being innovative and well-built, Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today unveiled its new Breeze™ Neighborhood Vehicle model line-up.

“Since our launch in fall 2009, the Breeze and its MyChoiceTM rear seat conversion capability have been very well received, so we’re thrilled to offer two new models to our customers,” said Greg Thompson, marketing manager for the Breeze family of vehicles.  New to the line-up is Polaris’ first street-legal electric-powered neighborhood vehicle, the Polaris Breeze SL; and a new 2-passenger version of the Breeze.

Built by a company whose name is synonymous with redefining recreational vehicles, each new model features an advanced, adjustable suspension and plush, contoured seating that delivers an extremely comfortable and smooth ride which has become the hallmark of the Polaris Breeze.  Boasting an automotive look, premium cut-and-sew seat design, and metallic paint colors, each Polaris Breeze promises to stand out from other neighborhood vehicles.

“The Breeze SL and two-passenger Breeze are yet two more examples of how Polaris is offering new and exciting ways for consumers to enjoy a master-planned community lifestyle,” said Marc Tullemans, director of Polaris’ Neighborhood Vehicle business.  “We’ve added the innovation consumers have come to expect from Polaris into all-electric vehicles, making every Breeze a smart and fun choice for the whole family.”

The new Polaris Breeze models will be available for test rides and purchase beginning June 1st, at select Polaris Neighborhood Vehicle dealerships.  Specific dealer locations can be found at  In addition to Suede Metallic, the vehicles will also be available in premium metallic colors Pearl White and Northwoods Green.

“Throughout 2010, we’ll continue to expand our dealer network and product availability, and hope the excitement around the Breeze thus far continues as consumers see and ride these wonderful new models we’ve added to the line,” said Tullemans.
