The Best Electric ATVs in 2022

ATVs stand for “all-terrain vehicles.” Defined as motorized vehicles, these models are by nature, designed to travel on low-pressure/non-pneumatic tires. They should also include a seat straddle and handlebars.

Depending on your local legislation, they are not meant for use on high-speed roads such as highways, remaining restricted to roads and paths. Read through our guide to U.S. PLEV law to better understand this topic. Today, the term ‘ATV’ is loosely applied to UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicles) and even dirt bikes. However, for this list, we are focusing solely on purpose-built ATVs.

ATVs are not immune to the electrification drive sweeping through the automobile industry. The quest for a cleaner environment has forced manufacturers to look beyond traditionally gas-powered ATVs. Now, the market has opened up to include several eco-friendly all-terrain vehicle alternatives fitted with electric powertrains. Here, we have identified a few options that offer the best return on your investment should you ever be in the market for an electric ATV.
