Saskatchewan has an automotive factory with finished units are now flowing off the assembly line at Regina-based LyteHorse.
The start-up designed, developed and is now delivering its unique electric stand-up ATV to customers across the continent. One of the early buyers is Detroit’s police department, a deal that could open up the enormous law enforcement market across North America.
The unit has also caught the attention of at least one television personality, a star of the hit CBS and now Paramount+ series Seal Team who pushed the unit to its limits and came away raving about its capability.
The battery-powered unit comes in a variety of configurations and the firm also produces a self-propelled trailer that can be pulled by the ATV or move on its own. One of its prototypes is designed for military applications which can be converted from applications such as a medical evacuation system to a platform for transporting supplies or a weapon system.
At full production, the team expects the Regina plant could turn out several hundred units a month.
