POLARIS RANGER XP KINETIC
The new, electric Polaris Ranger XP Kinetic raises the bar for recreation UTVs with 110 horsepower and 1250 pounds of cargo carrying capacity. This three seat machine is available in Premium and Ultimate Trims. The Premium trim is equipped with 14.9 kWh of lithium-ion battery capacity and offers an estimated range of up-to 45 miles, while the Ultimate trim boasts 29.8 kWh of battery capacity and offers an estimated range of up-to 80 miles.* The Ultimate trim also features a 7-inch infotainment screen powered by Ride Command technology and dash mounted speakers. Enhanced Ride Command offers riders the ability to see estimated remaining range and the battery state of charge directly on the 7-inch screen. Riders can even drop a waypoint on their charging location and see how far away they are from their next charge at any given time.
Additionally, there’s a new suite of connected technology with Ride Command+ that enables better owner control over both the vehicle and ride experience. From increased vehicle security to staying up to date on maintenance issues at the touch of a button, Ride Command+ simplifies powersports ownership. Remote monitoring of vehicle information, including miles, battery status and more delivers instant peace of mind. Owners can stay on top of repairs and avoid unexpected down time with timely vehicle issue diagnostics that are sent directly to their phone. The remote vehicle locator also allows owners to access their vehicle location directly from their phone, so hunters and hikers can easily find their way back to their vehicle. Lastly, remote vehicle monitoring lets riders prepare for the ride ahead with visibility to charge time remaining, miles, battery level, and more directly from their phone.
Capable and durable, RANGER XP Kinetic also delivers refined performance with clean, quiet operation for easy conversations with friends and family, stealthy trips to remote hunting spots, and quiet operation around horses and other livestock. The electric powertrain delivers smooth, precise control when operating at low speeds, so customers will have full control and confidence while towing, backing up to a trailer or spraying a fence line. When it’s time to have some fun, the instantaneous torque also delivers quicker acceleration for an exhilarating ride.
Ranger XP Kinetic is also packed with smart performance features to help maximize productivity. A 12V cargo box outlet is convenient for powering accessories like sprayers or charging portable batteries. A new shifter design includes high, low, neutral and park, and features a new, integrated switch for forward and reverse, enabling customers to change direction with the flip of a switch. This new feature makes tasks like plowing fast and efficient. In addition to high and low gear, RANGER XP Kinetic also has three drive modes for maximum versatility optimized to driving conditions and range management:
Eco+: Optimizes torque and top speed for maximum range and light duty jobs
Standard: Optimizes throttle response for everyday driving and moderate-sized jobs
Sport: Optimizes throttle response for spirited driving and the toughest jobs
FAST AND CONVENIENT CHARGING
Convenient charging options are designed to fit specific customer needs and are as easy as plugging into a standard wall outlet. Whether customers are looking for an overnight charge, or a quick top off during the lunch hour, Polaris has them covered.
