American Landmaster has announced their release of a lithium-powered side-by-side called the Landmaster EV. The first shipments are scheduled for May of this year! Dealers will have the new lithium-powered EVs in their showroom starting mid-May 2021.
The model is built on the same chassis as their flagship product, the L7. Being built with their proprietary independent rear suspension system (LROSS1), Landmaster claims the drive experience in their EV is incredibly smooth.
“We are combining the smooth ride of the L-ROSS* suspension system, the powerful torque of an AC motor and cleanly packaged 48V lithium ion battery cell, allowing the all new American Landmaster EV machine to quietly maneuver over different terrain. The L-ROSS suspension system moves swiftly over ridges, rocks, logs, & other rough terrain. Even while traveling at higher speeds over these obstacles, the ride quality is top of the line,” said Jordan Miller, American Landmaster lead engineer.
American Landmaster will be the first OEM in the marketplace to offer this kind of technology, and affordability in an electric side-by-side model. Partnering with two of the industry’s best, and most reliable leaders in lithium technology and AC motors, Landmaster has been able to move quickly to advance their product to the marketplace.
The Landmaster EV is equipped with an AC motor, powered by a single 105AH lithium battery pack.2 The standard battery pack provides a 45 mile max range. Coming later this Summer, the customer can upgrade to an Extended-Range 160AH battery pack, increasing the range to 65 miles. Each battery comes equipped with a rapid-charge feature allowing the user to get up to 80% charge in as little as two hours. The dash is also equipped with a true state-of-charge LED meter, giving the driver a precise level of battery life. You’ll also have an audible low-battery alert when below 10%.
The standard suspension system will provide 500lbs bed capacity, while the HD suspension system will provide up to 700lbs bed capacity.
“We’re ready to launch something big, and at prime time for spring. If you thought the ride experience and suspension was nice in our L7 gas-powered model, you’re going to love it even more in our EV. When we had our sneak-peak event last Summer dealers stated that one of their favorite models was our lithium-powered EV,” said David Piercy, marketing director for American Landmaster. “The goal was to produce a robust electric-powered machine that reduces the worry of running out of battery. With this machine, we’ve done just that. Longer range, longer lasting and highly capable of doing everything you do with a gas-powered model. And even better its at a remarkable price.”
American Landmaster claims that their new EV will provide consumers with an electric side-by-side that is longer-lasting, maintenance-free, heavy duty, and fun for the whole family.
In addition, Andy Carney, regional sales rep for the Florida territory, stated, “The new Landmaster EV will outperform any electric utility vehicle on the market today, and is far more capable than any lithium golf car that is out there. The EV all around is a higher value, lower priced machine than any other OEM in the lithium side-by-side market. The commercial space for this machine is huge.”
The Landmaster EV starts at $10,999, the extended-range version is priced at $12,299. You’ll be able to configure your own EV and learn more later this month at AmericanLandmaster.com
