Taiga Motors Corporation, a manufacturer of electric off-road vehicles, has announced plans to deploy an off-road charging network. Powered mostly by renewable energy, on-water charging installations have been already been completed in the first sites for Ontario and Quebec, with on-land electrification set to begin in Quebec in the near term.
Taiga is aiming to unlock 75,000 km of off-road trails and waterways by 2025. Lake Simcoe, Ontario, featuring Level 2 charging, and Lake Memphremagog, Quebec, with Level 2 and 3 charging, have been deployed. An additional 1,100 locations are targeted for electrification.
Taiga vehicles can leverage existing charging infrastructure using automotive-standard J1772/CCS combo connectors. As Taiga continues to grow, it intends to expand the off-road charging network across Canada and the United States.
