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.
