2019 RANGER EV AVALANCHE GRAY is rated out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by scooty from Loving it! But Dealers need education Bought this for snow plowing and forest/yard work across our 14 acres late last summer. So far it has performed flawlessly. Being only 14 acres, I have not really had to stretch the electric range very far but I have driven it for fun up and down VERY steep hills for over 30 minutes over probably 10 miles and have not gone below half-charged. Charging is simple and convenient. My only complaint really is Polaris knowledge of their own product. They still don't know the EV very well and even the local dealer had to call for tech support for some of the electronic hookup questions. And their website is no help at all. I'm sure this will improve in the future but for early adopters of the latest models it is a PAIN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Treebor from Good battery life Ranger EV was purchased to replace a gas powered Gator(John Deer) to serve has a UTV for outdoor work done at a large facility. Going from gas to electric was a bold choice and seems to be working out well. Battery life was a huge surprise to me, being able to get through basically a full work week on a single charge. Lots of torque and the 3-way optional drive mode is very handy. My only concern is how the battery bay is open to the elements and receives quite a bit of splash back from the wheels. The price. Also noticed some drop in power on our coldest days so far. Overall good machine for its purpose here. I can't say I would buy one for myself though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bullelk428 from Great Ride the Polaris EV is an awesome vehicle. I haven’t got to use it a whole bunch but have recently been to the mountains with it. It will go anywhere if you are brave enough. I’m still learning the best way to drive it to manage battery power. Each time I go I get better at it. The first time I went I had 30% battery left, the most recent time I went, 50%. Going the same place with the same load. the reason for the 4 starts is the battery location or accessibility. Trying to perform maintenance on the batteries is challenging. I hope in the future there will be other methods or changes made to perform the maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TMoney from Love my EV I bought this EV at the end of the year. Deer hunted off of it twice and now turkey hunted off of it numerous times. It's pretty muddy where I hunt especially with all of the rain we’ve had lately. Love it but motors are a little loud.. makes a high pitch whining noise when cruising and when mine engages in 4wd the front end motor grinds and the harder that front end has to pull, the louder it gets. Took it back to dealer to make sure they had fluids in it. Was told that was normal and not going to hurt anything that Polaris’ was aware of the issue but right now they all make noise and the were working on a fix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Demo45 from Ranger EV Overall, I am very pleased with my Ranger EV. Bought it for hunting but I find myself using it daily for all kinds of things. Has lots of power and climbs steep hills with ease. Really nice not having to carry all my stuff to my stand. A few improvements and I'd give it 5 stars. I think the motor could be a little quieter and it needs a switch to turn off brake lights when hunting. They illuminate when the key is in the on position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iotaprime from Everything we expected! We use the EV in a ranch/hauling mode not in a recreational mode. We love the dump bed, the quiet, the ground clearance, the metal protective plate underneath, the gear selections (low/mid/high range), and the bed capacity. We really love how quiet it is (have to say this at least twice!). Keeping it charged up is easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pilchuk2018 from Solid stable ride Got a side-by-side with the small cargo bed. Perfect for harvesting pumpkins, hauling work materials, etc. in areas I don't want to trample with a larger vehicle. The EV aspect is great! One less IC engine to maintain, and in my area the electric power includes a lot of hydro and renewable sources. Once I get my own solar up, it will be nearly free to drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madmatt from Good value for what you get I love pretty much everything about this EV Ranger except the range. I have a lot of hills around me and the hills really draw the battery down quickly. I do run it it max power most of the time as well. It may do better in conservative mode but is much slower. If I could have one improvement it would be range. My particular unit has the fully enclosed cab which is great and I would recommend it. The other down fall is lack of gauges and instruments. Kinda feels like it is stripped down a bit, but simple is good in a way too. Overall it’s quite with a bit of a high pitch whine when driving. The range leaves me wanting a gas rig sometimes to keep on going aa I am forced to turn around because of batteries being depleted.
