Taiga snowmobiles was founded in Quebec in 2015
The entire snowmobile uses components built from scratch
It has 140 km/h of range (88 miles) and reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3.0 seconds
The EV movement isn’t restricted to electric vehicles. There are snowmobiles that are electric as well, and Taiga is the one that built them first in 2015.
Offering a range of 140 km/h (88 miles) and capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, the Taiga is fast even by snowmobile standards. As a matter of fact, it’s quick enough to drag race a Tesla Model S 85D and win. Sure, it’s not the Model S Plaid or even the 100D, but still.
Taiga Motors also builds jet skis that are entirely electric. It’s snowmobile lineup is up to three models in the Mountain, Crossover, and Utility segments.
Its Mountain snowmobile is the Ekko which offers up to 131 km of range and reaches 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. The Atlas is the quickest in the lineup while the Nomad is the Utility snowmobile and can tow up to 1,124 lbs.
The battery powering the Taiga lineup is a 27 kWh unit which is light enough to keep the weight down while offering enough range for short to medium adventures. The range can be restored to 80% in 20 minutes using a fast charger.
The Taiga all-electric snowmobile isn’t for every rider, and won’t do so well on long trips. On the other hand, when it comes to pure straight line performance, finding a quicker snowmobile won’t be easy.
