ARGO, a manufacturer of ATVs, side-by-sides, UTVs and amphibious Xtreme Terrain Vehicles (XTVs), has tested its all-new Atlas EV amphibious XTV in Minnesota’s frozen tundra this winter.
Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes, boasts a record low of -60°F and a record high of 115°F, making the perfect testing grounds for ARGO’s all-new Atlas EV amphibious XTV. Based out of the Thief River Falls Minnesota facility, ARGO engineers were busy cold weather testing the Atlas EV over the holiday season.
The 48V system has been put to the test. The battery life, run times and gauge functionality are just some of the performance evaluations being performed in temperatures that have reached lows of -24°F so far this season.
Performance continues to impress in some of the harshest conditions as the ARGO E-SteerTM transmission has not missed a beat and continues to perform seamlessly with progressive maneuvers.
With over 12 inches of ice on the lakes, amphibious testing will have to wait until the spring. However, the feeling of floating was achieved cruising across the ice, proving yet again that ARGO XTVs are a true “Go Anywhere” machine.
