In the world of EV startups, deliveries are a lot more important that pre-orders. As of this week, Taiga has plenty of both!
Last week, Canadian electric powersports brand Taiga marked the first completed sale and delivery of its all-electric, 65 MPH, 180 HP Orca personal watercraft. That’s not just one small step for a startup brand in the EV space, but a giant leap for the powersports industry, in general.
“This is a significant moment for the Taiga team because not only are we kicking off summer with Orca deliveries, but we are proudly marking the milestone of the first-ever mass-produced electric watercraft available to consumers,” says Sam Bruneau, Taiga CEO. “(After) years of engineering and testing of our revolutionary electric powertrain platform in snow and water has now come full circle, truly changing how people connect with the outdoors.”
He’s absolutely right. Being able to get into the wilderness and hear it is a genuine difference. You can understand, then, why just about everyone is excited to see Taiga’s positive progress.
“Our government has always been a champion for a greener economy,” says the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, minister of Innovation, Science and Industry Canada. “This’s why, last year, we recognized the leading role Taiga is playing in the electrified powersports industry, and stepped up to support the manufacturing of their electric vehicles. I’m very pleased to see this Canadian company beginning deliveries of their first-ever electric personal watercraft. We will continue to support Canadian businesses that are on the cutting-edge of green innovation – it’s good for the economy, the environment, and Canadians.”
Taiga products are currently available through a hybrid direct sales model, which enables watercraft and snowmobile customers to order a vehicle direct, online, and pick it up at a participating local powersports dealer, who can assist with setup, trailering, and FAQs.
