  • 30 HP 48-Volt High-Efficiency AC-Inducted Electric Motor
  • Smooth Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)
  • Mid-Sized Design – Fits In A Full-Size Pickup
  • Plug Recharge With Standard 110v AC Outlet
  • Electric Advantage A quieter machine for operating inside barns or for stealthy trips to the deer stand, the RANGER EV never needs gas, requires very little maintenance, and works harder and rides smoother than any other electric vehicle in its class
  • Longest Range With an 11.7 kWh maximum-power battery pack and three-mode system (High, Low, and Max Range), the RANGER EV has the longest range in its class, up to 50 miles* in Max Range mode. Plugging into a 110V AC outlet is all it takes to charge it up and be ready to ride. *Range estimates assume a fully charged and conditioned battery pack. Actual range results are highly dependent on driving style and drive mode selected, terrain, ambient temperature, battery age, tire pressures, and installed accessories.
  • On-Demand True All-Wheel Drive (AWD) With Versatrac Turf Mode True AWD keeps you moving, automatically engaging all four wheels when you need more forward traction and reverting back to 2WD when you don’t. When in 2WD, the VersaTrac Turf Mode switch unlocks the rear differential for easier, tighter turns that won’t tear up your grass.
  • Ground Clearance A full 10″ of obstacle-clearing ground clearance lets you tackle some of the tougher terrain that comes your way.
  • Best-In-Class Ergonomics Cab ergonomics deliver outstanding driver and passenger comfort, with extra legroom and easy cab slide-through design so two adults can get in and out quickly.
  • Strong 30HP Motor It’s the hardest-working, smoothest-riding electric Side x Side. Operates cleanly and quietly with a 30-hp/48V AC electric motor. Alternating Current (AC) is more efficient and extends range.
  • Industry-Leading Front And Independent Rear Suspension Our legendary smooth Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) has 9″ of travel and five-point adjustable preload so you can stiffen the suspension for heavy loads. The MacPherson Strut independent front suspension has a long 8″ of travel.
