2019 ELECTRIC UTVs

— BUYER’S GUIDE —

Road-going electric cars are already capable of staggering performance, so it’s reasonable to expect electric UTVs to become a popular option for UTV drivers. Nikkola has a sport model on the way already, and there are electric UTVs for recreation and utility from a growing number of sources. Electric UTVs operate very quietly and without emissions, and an electric motor’s high torque eliminates the need for transmissions. This guide gives you all the facts you need to pick the perfect electric UTV.

ELECTRIC SPORT UTVs

NIKKOLA NZT

Nikkola’s NZT is available with up to 590 horsepower, and with motors at each wheel, there’s no transmission. Other than that, the vehicle’s 3300- to 5500-pound weight, and the most powerful version’s $61,900 price, it’s surprisingly like a conventional sport UTV. It has 20 inches of travel front and rear. The NZT is only available as a four-seater for now, but a two-seater may be coming.
