Electric snowmobiles will be here, be it in my lifetime or my sons lifetime. Technology will need a breakthrough to get the range but
Isn't it Yellowstone that says "you can ride any sled you want here...as long as it's a 4 stroke and on our list of acceptable snowmobiles?
I will not be surprised if Yellowstone, or other areas during my lifetime, change to say "You can ride any sled you want here...as long as it's an electric and it's on our list of acceptable snowmobiles."
Maybe it starts with hybrid snowmobiles, who knows?
Electric vehicles don't fit my needs yet but if they offered a 4wd pick up that got 500+ miles per charge that would (and will) get my attention.
If I go through 2,000 gallons of diesel annually that's 10,000 gallons over 5 yrs. If over the next 5 yrs the avg cost/gal is $3 that equates to $30,000 in fuel not having to be spent along with the associated maintenance of a fuel vehicle.
Maybe not my lifetime, but in my son's lifetime I believe electric will be the norm. Moore's law was generally accurate for 50+ years (give or take) for computers, whose to say the same can't happen for electric vehicles going forward?
