Polaris launches 110 hp electric RANGER XP Kinetic, ‘most powerful’ UTV on the market

by Micah Toll

The Polaris RANGER XP Kinetic UTV was just launched this morning, marking the most powerful, highest torque, and quite likely the most capable utility vehicle on the market today. Oh, and it just happens to be electric.

It already would have bested many other UTVs on the market in the power and torque departments, not to mention all the other advantages of electric drivetrains.

But Polaris went the other direction, opting for Zero’s most powerful 110 hp (82 kW) motor offering 140 ft-lb of torque.

That puts the new RANGER XP Kinetic leaps and bounds above the performance of other UTVs, gas or electric.

The RANGER XP Kinetic can haul an industry-leading 1,250 lbs (568 kg) or tow an even better 2,500 lbs (1,136 kg), taking advantage of that extreme low-end torque from the electric powertrain.
