2019 RANGER® EV AVALANCHE GRAY is rated out of 5 by 36.
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 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 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 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 3 out of 5 by PDE1 from Is comfortable ride, but clunky I've had my EV 9 months. it squeeze in the drive train sometimes. it has a slight clunk occasionally. putting it into reverse for a few feet, usually correct the clunky drive. the tires are not very aggressive, so muddy hills are sometimes not possible. the ride is great! seating and storage are good. Lights are too bright, it would be nice to have dimmers or red light alternatives. Also have some control over the rear lights being on all the time the key is on. This is a hunting vehicle!!, lights are not generally good.

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 Appleco1 from Polaris EV So far my EV has done as asked. I enjoy sneaking through our woods as quiet as the tires rolling. I have hauled 300# of corn in the back with 2 fat guys up front and mission accomplished. There is a lot of spots that will collect mud and that concerns me..I am worried about carrying the charger on board and it constantly getting wet but we will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Me Ron not Mo Ron from Finally Polaris makes an electric UTV I bought the Ranger EV 3 months ago. There was only 3 in the state of Texas. I went to Houston. It was well worth it. This UTV is perfect for use in my Rv park and checking fence on the ranch in the back. Lots of grease zerts for maintenance and frame is well designed for access to batteries. No more concerns with air filters, fuel filters, oil filters, gas cans sitting around or gas going stale. I can say after getting the suspension lubed this machine is super stealth. I ride up on tenants without them hearing me coming. I ride through the woods and see way more wild life, the 4 legged kind. I use it every day. It has over 60 hours now in 3 months. I put in on the charger at 35% about every 10 days or 3 times a month. Plug it in at 9pm and it is ready to deploy by 6-7am. I have shown it to lots of people. Polaris should send me a commission.
