    Any one own one here, if so how do you like it have any trouble buying new batteries for it?

    Damn they even make electric snowmobiles now





    Taiga Motors claims it has the world's first production electric snowmobile, producing zero emissions, requiring zero maintenance and offering zero compromise in performance. ... The main problem in producing an electric snowmobile for consumers has been a sacrifice in performance.

    Electric transportation is great but, oh yeah you gotta replace the batteries from time to time. A battery for my freaking drill approaches $100. Did y'all think you would ride for free?

    Where are you supposed to plug the fucker in to recharge it?

    All your snowmobile buddies gas up and they're gone, and you're sitting there for what, two hours while the thing recharges, if you can find a gas station willing to run an extension or whatever out to your machine?

    I'll pass. Dumb idea.

    Why? You think dragging an extension cord through snow is a good idea?
