Electric Snowmobile Takes Finland to the Top of International Nature Tourism

Snowmobiling is going electric. Finnish company Aurora Powertrains Ltd will unveil its new eSled – electric snowmobile at Kelekkamessut 2024 Fair in Rovaniemi on November 4th, 2023, at 12:00. The eSled will be on display at the company’s booth throughout the fair.

A fully electric snowmobile creates a new environmentally friendly and sustainable way to move in the winter wilderness. The electric snowmobile produces no emissions while being driven. It is quiet and odorless during operation, ensuring that electric snowmobilers do not disrupt other nature enthusiasts or wildlife. The new technology provides the rider with an even more comfortable riding experience. The electric snowmobile’s economy is in a league of its own. It consumes only approximately 21 kWh of energy for a 100 km ride on snow (equivalent to less than 2€).

Six times around the Earth

The patented electric and mechanical solutions have been tested in the challenging conditions of the North.

  • Our pre-production electric snowmobiles have been in use in Finnish Lapland and Norway’s Svalbard for about five years. Thousands of international adventure travelers have driven our electric snowmobiles a total of over 200,000 km, says APT´s CEO Matti Autioniemi.
  • Every kilometer is safe and environmentally friendly. The eSled’s features are controlled with our cloud-connected software, optimizing energy consumption, and enabling online updates and maintenance.
  • In guided tour use, the power settings can be adjusted for inexperienced drivers. In addition, the guide can monitor the location of each eSled on the screen, ensuring that the group stays together safely,” Autioniemi adds.

The innovation is the result of the company’s multi-year product development efforts. The eSleds are manufactured at the company’s factory in Mikkeli, and deliveries to customers will begin in December 2023.
