The guessing ends, the first Polaris – Zero powered – vehicle will be the top selling RANGER model, expected as early as 2022.
Polaris unveiled plans to debut with an all-new 2022 electric RANGER utility side-by-side in late December 2021, advancing the Company’s strategic rEV’d up electrification strategy. This full-size RANGER will be the first electric vehicle Polaris developed through its partnership with Zero Motorcycles, which the two companies announced last September. The Company is aiming to get the new electric RANGER to dealerships in early 2022.
A while after the first partnership announcement in September, we posted about an interesting interview on Yahoo Finance of Zero Motorcycles CEO, Sam Paschel, where he addressed the great potential of the deal, putting an emphasis on the company’s needs and focusing in on building their brand and expansion. For Polaris, this holds an interesting choise, as the RANGER is their top-selling off-road vehicle brand.
Our rEV’d up strategy positions Polaris to help define yet another chapter in powersports innovation.

As part of the Polaris rEV’d up strategy, the all-new full-size electric RANGER spearheads the company’s long-term plan to accelerate its leadership in powersports electrification. Design and development efforts for the all-new electric RANGER are underway in Wyoming, Minn., with manufacturing for North American vehicles to take place at Polaris’ facility in Huntsville, Ala.
The strength of our partnership with Zero Motorcycles and our own investments in electrification R&D enable us to leverage advancements in electric powertrains and performance to drive the off-road industry into the future,”
This will be one of the most technically advanced off-road vehicles on the market and reinforces Polaris’ position as the innovation leader in powersports.Mike Donoughe, senior vice president and CTO, Polaris Inc.
