Auto enthusiast Ron Cobbley from Utah wanted to modify his Polaris RZR RS1 UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle), but not with just basic parts. So, he decided to replace the factory 1.0L two-cylinder engine with a Tesla-sourced electric motor and two battery packs from a Toyota Prius Prime. What he ended up with was a 1,800-pound vehicle that makes 303 hp hp and 370 lb-ft of torque, or more than enough power to go off-road.
When the two Toyota Prius Prime battery packs are fully charged, you can expect up to a 60-mile range on asphalt, but when off-road, possibly just 30-miles. When all was said and done, it cost Cobbley approximately $30,000 USD to complete the project. Unfortunately, Polaris doesn’t sell electrified versions of its ATV / UTV models from the factory, so you’ll have to go the custom route. If this ATV doesn’t seem fast enough, there’s the Ducati-powered Yamaha Raptor.
