I bet that it drives like a golf cart. Not to mention that it looks like one of those EVs that you see in airports.

I don't know, I am just not convinced that this thing will be as capable as something that is gas powered.

Im quite convinced.
Yeah you're going to lose the whole experience of having a gasoline engine but this should still be just as good for work. It will have all the power you need and much sooner, more than a gasoline engine.

agreed, electric torque is instant. The only draw back is going to be range.

there's an easy way to solve that which is to have a gasoline generator engine to recharge the battery.

haha that's probably the best way to put it, it really looks like that, at least it's a cool golf cart and golf carts can be fun!

If you guys haven't messed around with it's twin, the Ranger EV, you're missing out. It is an awesome little machine. Range is better than you'd think, and it will pull a house down.

I haven't, I guess you have? Do you own one or did you just test drive it?

Buddy has one in Mississippi. Did a few Turkey hunts with him and he LOVES his Ranger EV. It is downright sneaky when cruising around checking out his food plots. It is impressive.
