There are a lot of good reasons to hop aboard an ATV when tooling around off-road. For starters, they’re far more maneuverable than most larger vehicles. They’re also nimble while still being sturdy, unlike motorcycles. But there are a number of downsides, as well — namely, they’re quite loud and not at all environmentally-friendly. The folks at DRR have a solution, however, in their Stealth electric ATV.
According to the brand, this is the first vehicle of its kind with a size comparable to 660cc options currently available on the market. Where it differs, most obviously, is in its power plant: a silent-running all-electric motor powered by a 72 volt, 4-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack that plugs into any standard three-prong outlet. With the standard edition, it can travel up to 35 miles uphill at full throttle, but also comes with the option for an upgrade that’s good for 65 miles per charge. It can also quick-charge in just six hours, has a handy digital dash, can haul a rider alongside 365 pounds of gear (mounted on the included racks), and is completely gear-less — so you don’t have to worry about shifting while you ride. The project is live on Kickstarter now starting at $7,500.
