OPPORTUNITIES: Positive outlook towards electric ATVs will create new opportunities.

The adoption of technologies related to electric ATVs has been increasing among ATV manufacturers. Leading markets for electric ATVs such as China, 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 the countries worldwide, to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, most of this investment is likely to go towards the development of electric powered vehicles and same applies to ATV market as well. In 2021, Polaris launched its EV ATV, Ranger XP Kinetic, model that it developed in collaboration with Zero motorcycles company. It has a 14.9kWH battery and can travel 45 miles on a single full charge. Polaris also partnered with a company Qmerit which is a provider of residential EV charging infrastructure. Similarly, in UK, the company Ecocharger is an all-electric ATV manufacturer. Their models are primarily driven by either lead acid or lithium-ion batteries. They have a strong presence in the European continent and have plans to expand dealerships across southern and central Europe. This indicates customers are demanding more electric ATVs either from a climate conscious mind or to comply with the country regulations. Nonetheless electric ATVs are set to have a growing market share in the future.
