“We are pleased to welcome Float On as a Taiga Service Provider, not only because they’re a top-rated boat rental company in Austin, but because they’re an established family-owned business offering a premium experience with a local perspective,” explains Sam Bruneau, CEO and Co-Founder of Taiga Motors.
“Texas was a premier choice for Taiga because it has one of the highest levels of EV adoption in the U.S. whilst being a key boating market,” adds Bruneau.
Taiga’s Hybrid Direct-to-Consumer Model: Elevating EV Adventures with Trusted TSPs
The company operates on a hybrid direct-to-consumer model. Customers buy their vehicles directly from the manufacturer, and TSPs like Float On act as local points of contact for customers, accompanying them on their off-road electric vehicle adventures.
Taiga ensures that every TSP meets certain criteria, including industry experience, a commitment to EV growth, compliance with its standards of excellence, and most importantly, a dedication to the customer.
Equipped with tools, parts, accessories, and training, Float On will handle delivery, perform pre-delivery inspections (PDIs), and provide after-sales service to assist customers throughout their ownership journey. And the good news is that Taiga’s 100% electric vehicles require low maintenance, with most services deliverable through remote service and Over-the-Air (OTA) updates.
