Polaris EV LSV Information:

This past January, Polaris Defense announced the introduction of a Low Speed Vehicle, the Polaris EV LSV, designed for on-road use. For model year 2011, Polaris will offer the same vehicle for civilian purchase as well.

“The Polaris EV LSV has garnered great interest with military and government agencies,”

said Matt Homan, vice president and general manager of Polaris’ Off-Road division. “We’re excited to introduce the vehicle to the civilian market for applications that require on-road capabilities.”

Based off the Polaris Midsize Side-by-Side platform, the Polaris EV LSV, includes the necessary features to classify the vehicle as a LSV per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, such as a horn, turn signals, automotive-quality windshield and rear view mirror. With its 30 horsepower electric motor, quiet operation, up to a 50 mile range and 25 mph top speed, the Polaris EV LSV is the most-capable LSV available. The unit features three modes; High for speed, Low for towing and hauling, and Max for maximum range to ensure the best use of power and battery life for any application.
