    It looks like Zero (the U.S. electrical motorcycle company) will be providing the power trains and battery packs for Polaris off-road products, while Polaris provides the chassis design, manufacturing, marketing, retail dealers and distribution network for a new line of battery-powered commercial and recreational vehicles, perhaps including snowmobiles and watercraft. Here is a link to the news: https://www.zeromotorcycles.com/custom/polaris

    Might be some interesting products and technology coming from this. Anything to advance the design and production is good. Kinda like the space race of Musk and Bezos taking the place of NASA in launches. NASA got so wrapped up in the contractors and lowest bidder they were glacial in advancements. Musk comes along and his people retrieve launch vehicles by landing them back on barges. Being their own designers and builders they are better at cost controls and quality.
    The future of Electric in transportation and recreation can move ahead.
    Looking forward to being the first on the block with a Land Speeder.

    Here is more spin regarding their new partnership by the two new partners. Polaris has more to say about their company than does Zero:
