Taiga Motors Unveils Its Electric Snowmobiles

The sound of your track churning the snow and your skis carving a new line may be replacing the braaap of your motor in the sleds of the future. And, thanks to Taiga Motors, the future is coming faster than you think.

The Montreal-based company’s electric snowmobiles are slated to start production in summer 2020 with delivery in time for the 2020-21 season. With three models to choose from in the crossover/trail, mountain and utility segments a silent motor, linear power and impressive torque will be available starting about $15,000.

Each sled’s range varies depending on the type of riding and conditions, but Taiga says for the average trail rider running 60 km/h (37.2 mph) you can expect a range of 100 km (62.1 miles). However, there will be extended range models with additional battery capacity. Charging the sled can take place with a regular household outlet (10 hours), an installed Level 2 Charger (2 Hours), or an optional Level 3 – DC Fast Charging unit (20 minutes). Top speeds range from 68 mph to 100 mph depending on the model and gear reduction.

As more riding land is lost every year to environmental concerns and objections of noise pollution, this technology could move the industry toward a greener future, and the ability to ride in more areas. These sleds also boast a zero-maintenance powertrain, which equates to an estimated savings of $2,500 a year on fuel, oil changes, and CVT belt or engine maintenance.
