About Electric UTVs

Here are our top five reasons to choose electric for your UTV vehicle:

They’re powerful – all of our vehicles boast powerful performance-driven features and can tackle tasks with ease. Choose one of our 4×4 models for all-terrain capability or a 2WD model for turf-friendly driving.

Zero carbon emissions – reduce your carbon footprint and go electric.

Economical to run – charging up your electric UTV for a full day’s work can cost as little as £3, that’s approximately 10 times less than a full tank of a diesel powered machine.

Less maintenance – with fewer parts to service, maintenance costs are kept to a minimum.

Smooth, quiet ride – our automatic vehicles make acceleration smoother and the overall driving experience much quieter.

ATVs are small all terrain vehicles that are usually made for one rider. They typically do not have an enclosed cab and may also be described as a quad bike or open buggy. A UTV is a utility task vehicle that is a larger type of ATV and has side by side seating. It is designed to carry heavier loads and also has additional seating. All of our UTVs have a roof and cargo bed, along with other similar features you’d find in a car such as a dashboard, steering wheel and foot pedals.

Absolutely. We’re proud of our range of all-terrain models with capacity to tackle impressive inclines, mud, snow and water.

All of our vehicles can be charged from a standard 13amp electrical supply. All vehicles have an on-board charger and are supplied with both a 16amp commando weatherproof plug and a 13amp plug adapter. We strongly advise RCD (residual-current device) protection. This protects against injury from electrocution. All of our new vehicles will be supplied with RCD protection built in or supplied with an auxiliary RCD from 1st April 2024. For our hire customers, we will quote with an RCD for your protection, but this can be removed if you have appropriate protection at your charging stations.

We offer models that are fully road legal when registered. These include The Nipper®, The Worker™ and The Beast®.

We offer two types of battery on our fleet, lead acid and lithium-ion. A lead acid battery will typically last 3-5 years with continual use and a lithium-ion battery, up to 10 years.

Buying an electric UTV

Please give us a call to discuss your order, alternatively specify your vehicle online via our configurator page or contact us via our website form or email.

Absolutely. We’d love for you to experience first-hand the power and performance from our electric all-terrain vehicles. If you’d like to try out one of the vehicles for an extended time, please get in touch with our hire team to arrange a week’s rental. If you then go on to purchase a vehicle, we will be happy to discount the price of your hire from your purchase price. Please get in touch to arrange a demo.

Once you’ve specified your vehicle through our website, we will contact you by email or phone to confirm the availability of your order, double-check all of your details and take a deposit. Our deposit will include VAT at the prevailing Government rate. We will issue you with a VAT invoice and request the remaining balance payment of your order by bank transfer.

After your full payment has been received, your order will be processed and our engineers will ensure your vehicle is quality checked and any extra modifications completed. We will agree a delivery or collection date for you and send you all the necessary paperwork, including road registration documents if required.

All of our vehicles come with a warranty. For further information, please see specific vehicle warranty details.

Our experienced engineers can make a wide range of bespoke modifications for our clients. If you have a specific request, please get in touch to discuss. To view our standard range of accessories, please select your desired UTV from our buy page and select from the available upgrades and extras.

Servicing & Maintenance

Yes. We can offer an annual service/mileage agreement to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best possible condition. We are also pleased to offer an extended warranty to customers taking out a service contract with us. Please get in touch to discuss.

Unfortunately yes. We cannot guarantee that your warranty will remain valid if an untrained/inexperienced engineer has modified or tampered with your vehicle in any way. However, we do take a common sense approach to our warranty exclusions – please get in touch to discuss before making any changes to your vehicle.

We carry a wide range of spare parts for our vehicles. Please get in touch with our sales team to discuss your requirements and we will be happy to provide a quote for you.

Short & long term hire

We have a large fleet of hire vehicles ranging from two-seater all-terrain UTVs right through to 4, 6, 8 and 11 seater people carriers. All of our hire vehicles are meticulously serviced by engineers. They are supplied to you fully charged and ready for use. Please take a look at our Hire page for details of all models available.

We’re specialists in event buggy hire and our all-electric fleet has been used across the UK at wide-ranging events including festivals, shows and outdoor exhibitions. We’ve also been privileged to supply our UTVs for prestigious occasions such as the King’s Coronation and the London Marathon. Customers also hire our vehicles for use at promotional events including customer off-road experience days and for use on filming shoots.

Using electric utility vehicles for your event can help you to reduce your carbon footprint and achieve up to 86% fuel savings on traditionally powered vehicles (depending on charging source). They’re also incredibly easy to use and charge, and have an excellent range. Our almost silent vehicles also offer less disruption for visitors and staff.

Yes, but note that not all vehicles are registered and not all vehicles can actually be used on the road. Please request this on booking and we will do our best to help. There is a small additional charge for road registered vehicles.

Our vehicles have been designed to require minimal tuition and supervision and are simple to operate. Instructions are included with each hire vehicle. For safety reasons, they can only be driven by driving licence holders.

All of our vehicles can be charged from a standard 13amp electrical supply. All vehicles have an on-board charger and are supplied with both a 16amp commando weatherproof plug and a 13amp plug adapter (excluding the Beast which can only be charged with a 16amp connection). We recommend that hire vehicles are charged overnight to reach maximum charge. A charger pack is also available at an extra cost. We recommend the use of an RCD unit to protect the user and vehicle. We can supply this at an extra cost too. Please get in touch to add this to your order.

Yes. Once you have accepted delivery of your hire vehicles, you are then responsible for them and so it is a requirement that you hold adequate insurance for the duration of the hire period. We will require confirmation of your insurance prior to delivery.

Please contact us to check availability of our fleet and the suitability of vehicles for your event. We will be pleased to provide you with a quote for your hire(s) including our delivery and collection costs.

Where possible, we use our own in-house driver transport to offer clients a reliable, convenient service. Alternatively for large multiple orders delivery will be via lorry.

Yes. We offer a 1.52m (5’) long x 0.9m (3’) wide trailer for hire at an additional small weekly fee. These have been specifically designed for use with a UTV and include a drop down tailgate for easy transportation of supplies.
