2021 HISUN UTVS
Hisun Motors is expanding its operations and is doubling the size of its facilities in McKinney, Texas. After the COVID-19 lockdown curtailed operations, Texas was among the first states to ease regulations, and Jason Sun is growing the Hisun brand. New styling, upgrades, colors, graphics and wheel packages are news for 2021 Hisun UTVs, and we got a chance to demo the Sector 1000 Crew and electric Sector E1, and tour the Hisun facilities. Hisun supplies white-label Sector UTVs to Lowe’s, Home Depot, Camping World, Rural King and other big-box stores, and UTV Action toured the assembly line and parts warehouse.
Hisun has 150 dealers and is shooting for 300 by the end of the year, as well as the Ride Now Group is looking to come on board. Jason Sun’s goals are to have 500 dealers, and the staff is growing with four new district sales managers (DSM) with the short-term goal of 12 DSMs. Formerly with Helmet House, Director of Parts and Accessories Tim Calhoon is developing 320 new Sector and Strike accessories.
2021 SECTOR UTV NEWS
Sectors get a new, more stylish hood and front fascia for 2021, and the removable hood access panel is larger for maintenance and storage. Lines are more swept for aggressive styling, and there are new colors: Hisun Red, Tactical Tan, Black Ops, Cavalry Blue, Destroyer Grey and Woodland Viper Camo by True Timber. Obor 27-inch Crawler tires replace 26-inch rubber on past Sectors, and Vision Wheels will come on as a partner for 2022. Vision will supply faux beadlock aluminum wheels with Hisun caps. Hisun has eight Sector models: 250, 450, 550 EPS, 750 EPS, 750 Crew EPS, 1000 EPS, 1000 Crew EPS and the E1.
Standard equipment on Sectors include winches, two-piece windshields, roofs, nitrogen-charged piggyback shocks with threaded preload rings and adjustable compression damping, horn, side mirrors, turn signals, hazard flashers, aluminum wheels, analog/digital instruments and steering-wheel locks for theft protection. Sector 1000s have 4500-pound winches, 550s and 750s have 3500-pound winches, and 250s and 450s have 2500-pound winches. Dump beds also have gas-assist or electric lifts, and most have half doors (except 450 and E1).
The Sector E1 is a 48-volt, 27-horsepower electric UTV with AC induction. Four Discover Dry Cell batteries power the direct-drive electric motor/transmission, and a locking front diff supplies 4WD. There are three drive modes, and the E1 will go 42 miles on a charge in low-power mode. Batteries produce 2020 amp-hours, and the on-board 1,200-watt charger needs 6–10 hours per charge. Torque is 220 pound-feet, and the transmission has L/M/H/N/R. Wheelbase is 72.5 inches, width is 62 inches, ground clearance is 11 inches, and the Sector seats two. The tilt bed holds 500 pounds of cargo, and towing is 1500 pounds. MSRP is $11,299, or $11,599 with Woodland Viper Camo.
