HYBRID SNOWMOBILE PROTOTYPE

Vehicle Code Name: Loki

Loki was born from a Defense Research & Development of Canada (DRDC) request for a hybrid snowmobile that could be made silent by going to electric mode at a flick of a switch.

This R&D project had two main objectives:

1- Demonstrate the feasibility of the technology within a 15 month time frame.

2- Demonstrate that an electric snowmobile could produce less than 60dbA when tested on SAE J1161 Standard.

Both objectives were attained on time and on budget.
