All eyes were on the electric Ranger at the Farm Progress Show at Boone, Iowa, this summer.
Chris Jensen of Polaris says the Ranger XP Kinetic has received a positive response since its launch.
“When we set out to build this machine, we didn’t set out to build an electric Ranger, we set out to build the best Ranger we have ever built, because of what electric brings to the table. So what you’re really looking at here is an electric Ranger that is capability, unrivalled durability, and refined performance,” Jensen explains in the video below. (Story continues below video)
As far as battery power goes, Jensen says there are two different trims: the premium, and the ultimate. With the ultimate, operators can expect roughly 80 miles of range, but it depends of course on environments and usage.
“One of the things that’s really exciting as we’ve gotten these into the hands of a few farmers is it’s more about how you’re using the machine throughout the day,” Jensen explains. “Especially if you’re doing jobs where you are getting in, and getting out, it’s more about the time that that charge will last. What we’re hearing is that there’s more than enough charge to last for a full day’s worth of work, even for farmers that having longer days than most people.”
