BRP’s SHOT engine starting system for Ski-Doo snowmobiles won third place in the performance technology category of the 2018 Edison awards.

SHOT provides an electrical charge to start the engine without the use of a battery, starter motor or ring gear and is nearly 20 pounds lighter than a conventional electric start. Snowmobilers no longer need to pull-start their sled while still benefiting from a lightweight sled.

“When creating new technologies or products, we not only think about making a performance beast that can conquer any terrain, we think about the needs and wishes of our customers and adapt our technology to answer them,” says Dominic Tessier, Ski-Doo Engineering Director.

BRP put together creative minds from its engineering teams in Canada and Austria as well as engineers from the Center of Advanced Technologies (CTA) in Sherbrooke, Quebec to introduce an industry-first: the use of lightweight ultracapacitor technology as a starter system. The CTA is a Canadian non-profit organization supported by BRP and the University of Sherbrooke.

With over 45 categories, from renewable energy to injury & disease prevention, the Edison Awards honor the innovations and innovators that shape our world.
