Taiga Releases Fast Charging Software Beta

The fast charging rate enables full day rides over 300 kilometers, with charging speeds of 0% to 80% in 30 minutes.

Taiga Motors Corp. announced that it is releasing an over-the-air Taiga OS software update to enable DC Fast Charging (DCFC) capabilities to existing battery hardware, permitting charge times of up to 0% to 80% in 30 minutes. 

“Introducing the fastest charging option available on the market to our already industry-leading range of up to 100 kilometers1 is a game-changer for our customers and to Taiga’s mission of accelerating powersports electrification,” said Sam Bruneau, CEO at Taiga. “It’s ideal for traveling extended distances, requiring only a short stop for coffee or lunch along the way — unlocking great adventures without emissions and significant cost savings on fuel.”

In Quebec, where Taiga is based, an estimated 5,000 kilometers of the province’s more than 30,000-kilometer trail network are accessible on an electric snowmobile. These new DCFC capabilities mean faster charging for more time riding. Owners can simply plug into Taiga chargers or standard automotive DCFC stations using the already equipped CSS1 combo connector port used across North America. Nomad snowmobile owners will receive a Taiga OS update enabling DCFC by accepting a prompt on the vehicle’s digital display.

“We are excited to roll out the DC Fast Charging feature via an over-the-air Taiga OS update, showcasing our future-proof hardware design ethos, enabling continuous product improvements even after customers have taken ownership of their vehicle,” said Gabriel Bernatchez, chief technology officer at Taiga. “This Beta roll out will allow our early adopters to experience nature further in our shared pursuit of electrification across powersports.”

Taiga was recently named one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022, Fast Company’s 2022 Best World Changing Idea Overall in North America, and Popular Science 2022 Best of What’s New.
