    Re: It's almost here. The electric snowmobile.

    This is pretty cool, interested to see where these will go in the next several years.

    there is still a belt to drive the track but shouldn't cause any heat problems like some sleds lol

    107hp at the driveshaft. Need some solar panels set up at boulder cabin for a DC fast charge.

    Re: It's almost here. The electric snowmobile.

    Looks interesting, definitely has been modeled after the G4, or at least the plastics are. I wonder how they plan to combat Lithium ion batteries worst enemy aka cold temps. Although an 80% charge in 20 mins is pretty cool and a full charge in 2 hours. It just requires a 240v plug. Which almost no hotels have readily available. Buy a genset and a sled combo deal?? 100km range, is that gentle Ontario trail riding or is that WOT over the hood blower pow?It's almost here.  The electric snowmobile.

    The price range isnít too far off of what your new 850/800 snow check is either. Innovation is nifty. We live in exciting times to be riding sleds IMO.

    Re: It's almost here. The electric snowmobile.

    I don't foresee these hitting the mountain in mass numbers anytime soon. I'm pretty sure the cold and heavy flipper days will make short work of the battery to the point where it would only be good for a trail ride to the cabin and back.

    Too much extra curricular outside of that is likely to result in a trip down to pick up the generator lol.

    LBZ I think you are correct, but if battery technology takes off more in the next 5 years like it has the last 5, these things could be contenders. The Huge torque and track speed is exciting!!

    If these E sleds become popular with the public via this company, I wonder how long it will take the big four to get in the game with their own versions. I'm sure they have been working on them. Proper timing into the market is key.
