All-Electric ATV Prototype
A prototype all-electric FarmDogg from Rogue Rover will be making the rounds on farm fields and back roads in the Pacific Northwest this winter. Melissa Brandao, Rogue Rover CEO, says the company plans to produce 200 units for sale in 2015.
  While some modifications may be made based on field testing, the basic platform is expected to be unchanged. The FarmDogg has a bench seat and step-through design. It has 10 kW hub motors in the rear wheels. The 3.2 kW battery pack is housed in the floor between the operator and passenger’s feet with space for a second pack.
  “The FarmDogg is designed for easily pulling and replacing the 64-lb. battery pack,” says Brandao. “The Samsung battery pack has a 2 to 3 hr. recharge on 110-volt current. One charge is good for approximately 4 to 6 hrs. or a 20-mile range with a maximum speed of 15 mph.”
  The FarmDogg has a carrying capacity of 500 lbs. and can tow between 500 and 750 lbs. It’s 48 in. wide tire-to-tire, 48 in. high and 84 in. nose to tail, says Brandao.
  “We designed it with a low center of gravity for safety,” she says. “It is beefy, and it has a lot of torque. We think the prototype is a great starting point.
  “The base price will be $9,999,” says Brandao. “We’ll start taking orders as we get the prototype out for demonstrations this winter.”
