ARGO Atlas EV Is Putting Electric to the Test

ARGO took advantage of Minnesota's frozen tundra to test the XTV's performance.

ARGO has been taking advantage of Minnesota’s frozen tundra this winter.

Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes, which boasts a record low of negative 60 degrees Fahrenheit (negative 51 degrees Celsius) and a record high of 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius) makes this the perfect testing grounds for ARGO’s all-new Atlas EV amphibious Xtreme Terrain Vehicle (XTV).

Based out of their Thief River Falls Minnesota facility, ARGO engineers were very busy cold-weather-testing the Atlas EV over the holiday season.

Putting the 48-volt system to the test, they evaluated battery life, run times and gauge functionality among other performance evaluations in temps that have reached lows of negative 24 degrees Fahrenheit (negative 31 degrees Celsius) so far this season.

Overall performance continues to impress in some of the harshest conditions, as the ARGO E-SteerTM transmission has not missed a beat and continues to perform seamlessly with progressive maneuvers.

Having over 12 inches (30 centimeters) of ice on the lakes meant amphibious testing will have to wait until the spring. However, the feeling of floating was achieved cruising across the ice, proving yet again ARGO XTVs are a true “Go Anywhere” machine.
