Richard Coleby, National Sales Manager at Polaris UK & Ireland said: “We are really looking forward to attending the Low Carbon Agricultural Show for the first time. It is a show that looks towards the future of sustainable farming, so it makes sense that we take our new electric RANGER XP Kinetic to showcase at the event. Not only is it completely electric, but this is our hardest-working and smoothest-riding UTV to date, so we’re looking forward to showing how it can support the farming industry in its journey to the future.”

Polaris can be found in the Low Emissions Vehicles section on stand LEV4.

Now available in UK dealers, the RANGER XP Kinetic is a 100%-electric three-seat UTV with an impressive powertrain providing 110hp and 140lb-ft of instantaneous torque – the most offered in a utility side-by-side vehicle. Boasting an industry-best 680kg payload capacity and the ability to effortlessly tow up to 1,134kg the RANGER XP Kinetic makes light work of the everyday. Thanks to being fully electric, the RANGER XP Kinetic also delivers smooth, precise control when operating at low speeds, particularly useful in scenarios like towing or backing up to a trailer.

The RANGER XP Kinetic is available in a Premium and Ultimate trim. The Premium trim features a single 14.9 kWh lithium-ion battery that offers an estimated range of 45 miles whilst the Ultimate trim has a battery capacity of 29.8 kWh with a higher estimated range of 80 miles*.

* Range estimates based on manufacturer data on typical customer driving usage and conditions. Actual range varies based on conditions such as external environment, weather, speed, cargo loads, rates of acceleration, vehicle maintenance, and vehicle usage.

XP Kinetic now available in Europe

XP Kinetic now available in Europe: Following the announcement of the arrival of the all-new RANGER XP Kinetic last year, Polaris has now announced that the first shipments of the Ultimate trim model have started, with both the Premium and Ultimate models now available at European dealerships.

RANGER XP Kinetic is available as a 3-seat model in Premium and Ultimate trim. The Premium trim contains a single 14.9 kWh lithium-ion battery that offers an estimated range of 45 miles (70 kilometres), whilst the Ultimate trim delivers double the battery capacity of 29.8 kWh with a higher estimated range of 80 miles (130 kilometres)* – ideal for longer days spent hard at work.

Convenient charging options are designed to fit specific customer needs and are as easy as plugging into a standard wall outlet. Whether customers are looking for an overnight charge, or a quick top off during the lunch hour, they are covered. XP Kinetic comes standard with a 1-phase EVSE that allows riders to charge from a 240V outlet. Factory-installed on-board charging rate is 3kW for the Premium trim—reaching full charge from 0% in 5 hours—and 6kW for the Ultimate trim—reaching full charge in 10 hours, which can be reduced to 5 hours with peak charging**. Peak charging requires a 3-phase (380V) outlet together with a 3-phase WallBox EVSE accessory, and along with the available 3kW on-board charging system (sold separately), rates can be boosted to 6kW for Premium and 9kW for Ultimate for up to 50% faster charge times.

Alongside all the premium features found in both model trims – like LED headlights, integrated dash switches and full-coverage front bumper fitted as standard – the Ultimate trim also offers a bright 18-centimetre (7-inch) touchscreen infotainment screen powered by RIDE COMMAND technology, which offers configurable gauges to monitor ride activity. Pair that with the Ultimate’s added front and rear camera, riders can then see a full view of their surroundings – including other riders behind. Riders can also seamlessly pair the display via Bluetooth to wirelessly stream music and stay connected with call and text alerts.

A feature also seen on the petrol-powered Ranger XP 1000 model, ‘Plow Mode’ activation on the XP Kinetic Ultimate makes snow removal even easier by automatically lowering the plow when shifting into low gear ratio, and automatically raising the plow when shifting into reverse. It also features a handy ‘Back Drag’ mode for pulling snow away from buildings. 

Capabilities and Performance

Manufactured at Polaris’ state-of-the-art facility in Opole, Poland, and engineered through Polaris’ exclusive 10-year partnership with Zero Motorcycles, the RANGER XP  Kinetic features an all-electric powertrain that offers the most horsepower and torque ever found in a utility side-by-side. Not compromising on capability, the XP Kinetic can effortlessly tow up to 1,134kg and boasts an industry-best 680kg payload capacity, as well as a class-leading 35.5 centimetres of ground clearance and 25.4 centimetres of suspension travel to confidently rise over obstacles and smooth out the bumps.

With regenerative braking, electric power steering, on-demand all-wheel drive and VersaTrac Turf mode as standard, as well as three driving modes—ECO, Standard and Sport—riders are in complete control of their ride, depending on the terrain and task at hand.

Warranty

Thanks to being fully electric, the RANGER XP Kinetic features fewer moving parts for lower maintenance costs, and both Premium and Ultimate models are backed by a two-year total coverage warranty, three-year electric powertrain warranty, and five-year battery coverage***.

CAPABILITY, DURABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

The RANGER XP Kinetic delivers uncompromised capability, unrivalled durability, and refined performance.

In addition to its unmatched performance, customers will appreciate the quiet electric powertrain for easy conversations with passengers and minimal disturbance to others, allowing customers to work in the early morning or late evenings without waking the neighbours, and avoiding startling horses and livestock when working around the farm.
