ARGO, manufacturer of ATVs, SxSs, UTVs and the worldwide leader for amphibious Xtreme Terrain Vehicles (XTVs) has been taking advantage of Minnesota’s frozen tundra this winter.
Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes, which boasts a record low of -60°F (-51°C), and a record high of 115°F (46°C) makes this the perfect testing grounds for ARGO’s all-new Atlas EV amphibious XTV.
Based out of their Thief River Falls Minnesota facility, ARGO engineers were very busy cold weather testing the Atlas EV over the holiday season.
Putting the 48V system to the test; battery life, run times and gauge functionality are just some of performance evaluations being performed in temps that have reached lows of -24°F (-31°C) so far this season.
Overall performance continues to impress in some of the harshest conditions as the ARGO E-Steer transmission has not missed a beat and continues to perform seamlessly with progressive maneuvers.
Having over 12-inches (30 cm) of ice on the lakes meant amphibious testing will have to wait until the spring. However, the feeling of floating was achieved cruising across the ice, proving yet again ARGO XTVs are a true “Go Anywhere” machine.
