American Landmaster has announced the release of its 2022 EV 4X4 Lithium-Ion utility vehicle. Authorized American Landmaster dealers will have the new EV 4X4 machines available in their showrooms starting September 2022.
The all-new Landmaster EV 4×4 is built on the same chassis as the original, first-of-its-kind, EV lithium side-by-side (SxS), launched in 2021, including fully independent L-ROSS suspension, automotive grade ball joints and bushings, and weather-sealed electrical connectors. According to David Pierce, “Two years ago, we created the first-ever, purpose-built lithium-ion utility vehicle. We are also extremely excited to continue the growth of this category with our 2022 EV Lithium 4X4 lineup.”
The 2022 Landmaster EV 4X4 will continue to drive innovation in the lithium utility vehicle sector with a best-in-class 160 amp-hour power plant. It also comes with super-duty four-wheel-drive (4WD) transaxle and on-demand 4WD coupled with a rear-locking differential. The vehicle is capable of up to 65 miles on a single charge, opportunity charging for 10 minutes, 20 minutes or an hour, and can be fully recharged in less than six hours. An on-board charger, low maintenance battery and on-dash battery storage switch are all standard features designed to create a best-in-class ride experience, whether hunting, trail riding or while working with a commercial landscape crew.
