Svansele Wilderness Center in Skellefteå, one of the regions fastest growing tourist companies, ordered not just a few but 20 electric Taiga snowmobiles.

"In our vast boreal forests of Swedish Lapland, we haven’t until now, been able to offer a sustainable and silent way of reaching our camps or experience our moose safaris. Now we’ve ordered our firsts fleet of 20 snowmobiles, with a 30 guests capacity , from the Canadian frontier company Taiga Motors, that pushes the boundaries for electric snowmobiles. In line with Swedish Lapland’s work for a sustainable region, this will be the first big investment in electifired snowmobiling and sustainable motor experiences", says Daniel Petersson, CEO of S.W.C..


Important step for sustainable tourism

The demand for more sustainable nature operations is hard to meet with traditional snowmobiles. Therefore initiatives like this one is crucial, to meet the markets demands of sustainable tourism and will help increase environmental awareness and shape the future of the Swedish Lapland region.

Technology guarantees reliability

Even under crystal clear starry skies when temperatures can drop drastically these machines are reliable.

"An advanced thermal management system ensures that the battery will always be in it’s sweet spot – even when temperatures get as low as -40°C", Sean Gatesy, from Taiga Motors explains.
"Range is dependent on riding conditions and terrain, but for average trail riding at 60km/h you could expect at least 100 km of range with standard battery options."

Reach new areas without harming nature

This is not just a new and sustainable way of snowmobiling. It’s a new way of exploring hidden gems in the arctic nature, without exhaust and disturbing noise. It gives tourists the possibility to experience nature through all their senses with a minimal impact on local fauna.
