Cold weather is not the best for electric vehicles – although, countries like Norway may seem as a controversial example. Havelaar Canada recently unveiled the all-electric pickup Bison made specially for hard conditions – read further for details.
Bison is built for hard work – to some extent, it is a merit of a rigid frame made of steel and carbon fiber. Battery packs are hidden in special isolation boxes keeping them warm. This allows the batteries not to lose juice when it’s chilly outside – average Bison’s range on a single charge equals 186 miles (300 km).
Bison is equipped with two electric motors – one for each pair of wheels. All-wheel drive and engines capabilities allow the car to be quite mighty when it comes to severe work – factory tests showed Bison to be capable of crawling up a 30-degree hill being fully loaded.
