Increased demand for recreational activities, agriculture, and military operations.

ATVs were earlier endorsed and traded as leisure vehicles designed to deliver thrilling experiences to the rider. However, it was soon realized that ATVs are useful machines to travel through zones inaccessible by trucks, four-wheel drives, or other vehicles. Gradually, ATVs became popular with their many applications in agriculture, such as inspecting crops and livestock, applying fertilizers and chemicals, repairing irrigation systems and pipelines, supervising field crews, and transporting materials. Today, ATVs are found in all types of farms, orchards, nurseries, and forests.

John Deere, a major agricultural and farm equipment manufacturer, recently launched UTV models for farming applications. The company plans to update its various utility vehicles for farming purposes owing to the higher demand for such vehicles by customers working in the agriculture sector for multiple applications. In July 2022, John Deere introduced its AutoTrac-assisted steering system for its Gator Utility Vehicles. The AutoTrac-assisted steering system was created to help operators be more productive and less tired. This system ensures that the vehicle maintains consistency and precise accuracy while moving through the field, allowing for efficient and reliable performance. This AutoTrack Steering system comes in models such as XUV835M HVAC, XUV835R, XUV835R Signature Edition, XUV865M HVAC, XUV865R, and the XUV865R Signature Edition.

Positive outlook toward electric ATVs will create new opportunities.

The ‘UN-Habitat’ global report claims that cities account for 70% of greenhouse emissions and energy consumption worldwide. With such alarming environmental threats, most automotive manufacturers have been looking to introduce fuel-efficient and emission-free models in the coming years. The adoption of technologies related to electric ATVs has been increasing among manufacturers. Leading markets for electric ATVs, such as China, the US, and Germany, are investing heavily in R&D infrastructure for off-road vehicles. Since there is a lot of pressure on OEMs, mainly due to new regulations implemented by countries worldwide to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, most of the investments are likely to go towards developing electric-powered vehicles. The same applies to the ATV market as well.

In 2021, Polaris launched its EV ATV, a Ranger XP Kinetic model developed in collaboration with Zero Motorcycles. It has a 14.9kWH battery and can travel 45 miles on a single full charge. Polaris also partnered with Qmerit, a provider of residential EV charging infrastructure. Further, companies such as Ecocharger, Powerland, evoletIndia, and DRR USA focus on developing ATVs and Side-by-side vehicles for applications such as agriculture, sports, and recreational activities.
