Last September, Polaris and Zero Motorcycles announced their "rEV'd up" collaborative program, aimed at the development of electric off-road vehicles. The first product to result from that initiative is Polaris' Ranger XP Kinetic UTV, which can now be reserved for a 2022 delivery.

Initially teased back in March, the side-by-side/two-seater Ranger XP Kinetic UTV (utility task vehicle) is being offered in two models – the Ultimate and the Premium.

The Ultimate delivers 110 HP and 140 lb-ft (190 Nm) of torque, a sub-four-second 0 to 40 mph (64 km/h) acceleration time, plus the ability to tow up to 2,500 lb (1,134 kg) and carry as much as 1,250 lb (567 kg) in its cargo box. One charge of its 29.8-KWh lithium-ion battery pack should reportedly be good for a range of approximately 80 miles (129 km).

Some of its other features include 14 inches (356 mm) of ground clearance; 29-inch Pro Armor X-Terrain Tires on 14-inch wheels; a 7-inch vehicle data/navigation touchscreen display; LED headlights and tail lights; a full-body skid plate; integrated winch and plow mounts; along with a 12-volt power port in the cargo box.

The Premium offers most of those same features, the main difference being that it has a 14.9-KWh battery pack that delivers a range of 45 miles (72 km).

On both models, users can switch between between Eco-plus, Standard and Sport drive modes as the situation dictates. Additionally, the vehicle will automatically switch from two-wheel-drive to all-wheel-drive whenever a loss of traction is detected – it can also be switched on demand.

Interested parties can reserve a vehicle now, via either the Polaris website or a Polaris dealer. Pricing for the Ultimate starts at US$29,999, with the Premium coming in at $24,999.

Shipments should begin next summer (Northern Hemisphere). In the meantime, you can see the Ranger XP Kinetic in action, in the video below.

The camouflage ones sold out by 10:16 Pacific this morning. If anybody wants to get in line for a white one, now would be a good time.

That is so cool! I've always wanted an electric side by side which would be so quiet!

Looks awesome, and great promotional video, even (smartly) showed off it's quiet benefits.
This will sell well.

Slick stuff. But wow, $25K and $30K leaves these UTEs in the luxury toy class.

Plastic windshield, no doors, no side or back windows, two simple seats, zero amenities and yet the price of a car.
