“BRP TO INTRODUCE ELECTRIC MODELS FOR EACH OF ITS PRODUCT LINES BY THE END OF 2026”

 

From this statement it will be given that there will be electrically powered S x S.

Now take that power train and adapt it to a snow machine

 

For your consideration an Electric powered Elite.

 

What would be the target market? Resorts, Downhill Ski areas, private ownership?

I must admit my lack of private ownership and to what extent they are utilized. Would a range of 100 miles be sufficient?

Cost? What did 2004 sell for?  As a point of note, the 2022 Mach Z retailed for $20,000 and sold quite well

 

As reported there 507 2004 models produced, a small number, but never the less still produced.

So, it would be conceivable that they could be produced.

Are you interested?

I would rather see a gas powered Elite. 2 or 4 stroke non turbo for cooling and cost.

2004 & 2005 Elite retailed for $25000 cdn plus tax, resale values on all 3 editions of Elites have been very high. I could foresee a limited run become available for around $30,000 us or $35000 cdn.  Canadian dollar is moving up , but undervalued do to the ridiculously low interest rates which harm the savers, and drive up house prices. An electric Elite could be a possibility but would retail for around $45,000 cdn with a range of 300 miles.

I could possibly be interested, but I am guessing the price will be too high to justify (for me).

Yes, more like ski resorts, or hoity toity people that have plenty of extra income..

I like where you're going with it........!
