“Making ownership easy extends beyond the engineering and design of our vehicles,” said Mike Donoughe, Chief Technical Officer and Head of Electrification, Polaris. “As we introduce electric offerings, starting with our new RANGER XP Kinetic, providing a solution that streamlines the installation of Level 2 home charging is an essential element of the customer experience.”
“Our utility side-by-side customers are focused on getting the job done and with the launch of our new RANGER XP Kinetic, customers also want a turnkey solution for fast, accessible charging, enabling them to get back to work and fun faster. Qmerit will be the go-to resource for Polaris, and our dealers, to support these customers’ needs,” said Steve Menneto, President of Off Road, Polaris.
