MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA – December 23, 2021– (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Taiga Motors Corporation (“Taiga” or the “Company”) (TSX: TAIG), a leading electric off-road vehicle manufacturer, today announced it has completed production of its first customer-ready electric snowmobiles and is working with governing agencies on final approvals to begin first deliveries to pre-order customers in early 2022.
“Today represents the shared dream and vision of our entire organization coming to life as the first snowmobiles come off the production line. I am proud of the demonstrated ability and perseverance from employees who together have overcome challenges as we navigate unprecedented supply chain volatility,” said Taiga CEO Sam Bruneau. “With the sleds soon ready for the snow, we are excited by the idea of our customers being able to ride on these cutting-edge machines that embody winter exploration without compromise.”
Over the past year, Taiga has focused on ramping up production rates through several build and testing phases aimed towards improving manufacturing efficiency and quality in key areas including battery automation, chassis systems, propulsion and connected platforms. By leveraging its innovative clean-sheet design, scalable technology, and refined mass-production processes at Taiga’s 130,000 sq. ft. Montreal facility, 2022 will allow the manufacturer to increase vehicle delivery across its product line.
Taiga has also been hard at work spearheading off-road exploration electrification. In the fall, it announced the launch of its electric off-road charging network, which began with on-water charging stations. Recently, the Company began installing its first off-road charging stations as part of a trail loop through the forests of the Mauricie and Lanaudière regions in Québec. These first charging locations each feature Level 2 chargers, as well as two Level 3 DC Fast Chargers resulting in the first long distance snowmobile trail in the world with access to charging stations.
