Electric ATV choices

Looking at choices for an electric for use around our property. Basically I think the choice comes down to these:

* “Cunningham”:http://www.cunninghamgolfcar.com/p-225-xrt-850-electric-utility-vehicle.aspx. Lacks a certain spirit, but comes in well under the price of most the others. Basically a golf cart manufacturer, I’d be concerned about torque on crappy surfaces and inclines.
* “X-Treme”:http://www.x-tremescooters.com/utvs/xu3000/xu3000.html. Plenty of attitude but doesn’t really exist yet.
* “Bad Boy Buggies”:http://www.badboybuggies.com/products.php. Perhaps too much attitude — Camo the only paint option. And I think they will come to regret that name.
* “Polaris Ranger EV”:http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-us/ATV-RANGER/2010/Mid-Size-Utility-Vehicles/RANGER-EV/Pages/Overview.aspx. Not the cheapest, might be the way to go tho, you can actually find these at dealers around here.

Lots of other regional choices. A concern I’ve heard is battery life in our moist climate, will be interesting to see how that works out.

  1. Two obvious US made choices would be the eForce from EVS in New York (www.ecoeatv.com) and the Gorilla from Doran EV (www.doranev.com). The eForce, in particular, meets or exceeds ICE engine atv expectations. Meanwhile the Gorilla (Doran e-atv) is a long time on the block and much more practical than a bad boy buggy. Very reliable system and long proven.
