MONTREAL, Nov. 7, 2023 /CNW/ – Taiga Motors Corporation (TSX: TAIG) (“Taiga” or the “Company”), an innovative Canadian company transforming the powersports landscape, has reached a significant achievement with the production of its 1,000th electric vehicle (EV). This milestone was celebrated with the completion of an OrcaTM Performance, a cutting-edge, fully electric personal watercraft that’s making a big splash in the industry.
The 1,000th vehicle built since the opening of the Montreal production facility in 2022 is testament to Taiga’s unwavering commitment to accelerating the electrification of the off-road industry. Taiga’s CEO and co-founder Sam Bruneau is thrilled with this manufacturing triumph, saying, “There is nothing easy about producing world-first electric vehicles at scale. I am very proud of our team’s perseverance to push through short term pain in building the foundational production system for meaningful long-term gains in leading the off-road EV transition.”
Taiga Motor’s passion for sustainable technology is evident in the recently launched Orca Performance, a fully electric personal watercraft that boasts industry-leading performance, silent operation and zero emissions. Orca Performance has been purpose-built to provide a thrilling on-water experience while being eco-friendly. With an electric motor that delivers instant torque and acceleration, Orca Performance is highly responsive and fun to ride. The watercraft is powered by a sealed lithium-ion battery that’s been optimized to deliver maximum power across its lifetime under high vibration and saltwater environments, providing up to two hours of riding.
Orca performance is a crowning achievement for Taiga, demonstrating what can be realized by pushing the boundaries of innovation. The Company’s success in producing its 1,000th unit is a significant milestone that will pave the way for the future of off-road EVs.
Taiga has begun switching its manufacturing to its Nomad vehicle, the world’s first mass-produced 100% electric snowmobile that utilize the same modular powertrain as Taiga’s watercraft. Nomad is changing the game for commercial operations and ski resorts with its lower cost, quiet and emission-free operation. Just like Orca Performance, the Nomad platform has been optimized for more efficient manufacturability without compromise on high performance.
Last week, Taiga launched its new Cloud Connected Mobile App bringing a rich set of new features to NomadTM snowmobile and OrcaTM Personal Watercraft owners, enhancing their ownership experience whether for work or recreational usage. With industry-first real-time vehicle localization, mode preference features, measurement system selections, and charging details, this new App makes the Taiga ownership experience better than ever.
Taiga (TSX: TAIG) is a Canadian company reinventing the powersports landscape with breakthrough electric off-road vehicles. Through a clean-sheet engineering approach, Taiga has pushed the frontiers of electric technology to achieve extreme power-to-weight ratios and thermal specifications required to outperform comparable high-performance combustion powersports vehicles. The first models released include a lineup of electric snowmobiles and personal watercraft to deliver on a rapidly growing demand from recreational and commercial customers who are seeking better ways to explore the great outdoors without compromise.
