CAN-AM’S EV COMMITMENT

Can-Am doesn’t have a production UTV in our guide 2021 Electric UTVs, but it has outlined its commitment to EVs,, including electric UTVs. Can-Am’s parent company, BRP, plans to invest $300 million over the next five years to electrify its existing product lines by the end of 2026. The first product is expected to be introduced to the market within the next two years, followed by a rapid rollout across all product lines. BRP is developing its Rotax modular electric powerpack technology in-house, which will be leveraged across all product lines.

BRP is creating an Electric Vehicle Development Centre in Canada, as well as a development facility in Austria.

SEGWAY’S NEXT STEP

Segway currently offers its Villain sport UTV and Fugleman recreation UTVs with hybrid or gasoline power. The company’s extensive experience and engineering expertise with electric powertrains make electric UTVs a natural next step.

VOLCON’S BEAST & STAG

Texas-based Volcon has two electric UTVs on the way, and electric power is only part of what makes them special. Volcon describes the Beast (left) as “part side-by-side, part trophy truck”, “the largest sport UTV available” and “more useful than a pickup truck for work on the land.” No specifications or prices are available yet. The machine’s release is planned for summer 2023.

According to Volcon, the yet-to-be-released “highly configurable Stag blurs the line between utility and sport.” A convertible pickup bed and high towing capacity let this four-seat, 64-inch-wide machine handle a variety of tasks. Long-travel suspension helps it perform on all kinds of trails and terrains. Specifications and prices haven’t been released yet. The Stag’s release is planned for summer 2022.

YAMAHA’S EV FUTURE

Yamaha has not officially announced plans for an electric UTV, but with its extensive experience in electric powertrains, including new automotive power units approaching 500 horsepower, it is ready when customers are.
