    Looks like I am the first here to post after the topic was started. I just joined PRC! I am here to find out about the new Ranger EV! I am very interested in the new EV! I would love to here first from owners that have one. I called my local dealer today and they have not had any in yet. He said they are hard to come by now, but he will call me when they come in. If anyone has any first hand information on the Ranger EV please let me know! Thanks.

    Patrick,

    Welcome to PRC, it is great to have you. While I don't own an EV, we did get to drive one while on our dealer show trip back in July. It is awesome and I must admit I was quite surprised at how peppy the darn thing is. The electric motor is huge, rated at 29 hp and is certainly adequate for the job. The charger plug is in the glove box and the controller is under the seat as well as the batteries. The suspension is great, no golf cart banging around here. It feels very similar to the regular Ranger in that regard. For around home, farm use, shooting clays, etc. this thing would excel. The only thing holding the lid on the sales volume is the pricing. But, for what you are getting it is not a bad deal. You will not be disappointed in its performance if the one I drove was any indication.

    Thanks for the welcome! Sounds like you had a good first impression with the Ranger EV! Yes it is expensive, but as long as the battery life is reasonable it will be well worth the money!

    Yes, a very favorable impression! They did tell us the range of the batteries but I can't remember what that was. I don't remember feeling it was too low though.

    50miles on a single charge (depending on usage, 4x4 low range/high).
    I have one here at the store I have had hooked up to a single axle trailer with a wind power module sitting on it (about 1000lbs and the trailer is 400lbs with a 3500lb axle) and I have been pulling it around our paved lot and parking lot for the last 3 weeks with snow and ice on the ground on a single charge from 4 weeks ago when it rolled off the truck and I charged it then. I am really impressed with these things. We also have 2 more that came in at the same time and they have been outside without any charging since they came off the truck and with the 3 weeks of temps not getting north of 20 they still power up and move as of today.

    REDBULL, Thanks for your Post. Sounds impressive so far! Can you tell us more about any type of Warranty on the Batteries? How many years can you expect to get out of them? Sure wish my local Dealer would get one in soon! Keep us up to date!

    So here is what I found out; http://www.trojan-battery.com/
    About-Us/MasterDistributors.aspx to find a Trojan Battery distributor. The warranty for the batteries will be covered by the
    battery manufacturer directly.

    or

    Looks like 4yrs.

    Wow! That's pretty good! So let me aks you, if I start having problems with the batteries not charging or not holding a charge within the 4 year period, do I bring it back to my Polaris Dealer for repair? Will my Polaris Dealer contact the Battery Company for me and have them send out new batteries to be replaced? Just want to make sure I have it clear! Thanks for the Great Information!
