Ok so I have POTENTIALLY found a great deal. Are the 2013's ok units? I have found a left over brand new 2013 model with no hours and no use, full warranty etc for $8500. Should I get a newer one or is this one ok? Would like to save the case if there a good unit.

Thanks,

I'd say go for it! They haven't made any significant changes in the later models that I have heard of.

Check the condition of the batteries and cables for corrosion.

If you buy it, be prepared to do battery maintenance once a month. Buy a lot of distilled water and Baking Soda. Also need to change the charging algorithm to 71 or 11, so that it doesn't boil the water out of the batteries when charging them.

I have just over 100 hours on our 2013 model and it is the best UTV of the three that we have had.

Ive just seen a youtube video a few days ago. Low torque electric power demonstrated with a Polaris RANGER EV Electric UT climbing a tree. I think it was 100% electric with no gas andno emissions.

Ok I'm calling them Monday to move on it. Just seems to be the way to go if there the same as a 14 model. Thanks

Would you guys do a new 13 no hours for $8500 or a new 14 no hours for $9500?

That $8500 is an excellent price.
I have about 700 hours on my 2010 model and use it daily in the woods. Love it for the quietness!

I called Friday and negotiated $8500 as a out the door price. Going to pick it up next week. I've driven the bad boys etc and the EV is just down right awesome.

Good deal! I also looked at the bad boys a few years ago and they were just another golf cart at that time compared to the Polaris EV. Remember to keep batteries filled with distilled water and connections tight. Every so often splash battery compartment with baking soda and water.
