Judging by the upsurge of emission-free mobility solutions, it clear that electrification is paving the way for the future. Even the most bull-headed carmakers are accepting the inevitable shift to eco-friendly platforms. We’ve probably seen almost all types of transportation modified for battery power. Meanwhile, Some of our readers know how challenging it can be to traverse over surfaces with heavy snowfall. Thankfully, Aurora Powertrains is offering an all-electric snowmobile that can handle even the toughest conditions.
Originally, the company was intending to manufacture these awesome rides for guests going on its Aurora eMotion safari. This eye-opening adventure takes you on a trip across the Arctic Circle. Hence, after undergoing grueling tests in the most extreme locations in Finland, its ready to personal use. Similar to modern EV technology the snowmobile even recharges its batteries via regenerative braking down slopes.
Aurora Powertrains is offering two models: Touring and Utility. The former boasts 80 kW with 160 Nm of torque, while the latter is capable of 100 kW with 240 Nm of torque. Traditionally, colder temperatures are a nightmare for batteries. Nevertheless, the advanced thermal management system takes care of the rest. Both versions are reportedly capable of traveling up to 40 km before needing a charge and can seat up to two people.
Traditionally combustion engines are noisy, which can ruin the experience for those seeking tranquility. The optimal solution is going all-electric and enjoy the sounds of nature as the gentle hum of the motor pushes you along. Aurora Powertrains is apparently working on a Long Range variant for the Touring model. Electric snowmobiles are the only way to travel and save the environment at the same time.
