MONTREAL — Taiga Motors Corporation, an electric off-road vehicle manufacturer, announces that it is expanding its footprint across Scandinavia with the delivery of additional Nomad(TM) snowmobiles to its key customers SkiStar and Motorbutiken Klövsjö. In addition, Taiga is continuing its expansion in the European market with snowmobile deliveries at French and Italian ski resorts and tour operators, through its electric sleds.

SkiStar, the leading Scandinavian ski resort operator and an early adopter of Taiga’s technology, is set to acquire additional electric snowmobiles for their resorts in Sweden and Norway. Cementing their commitment to sustainable practices and spearheading the ski hill industry’s transition to electric power, SkiStar’s goal is to achieve carbon neutrality at all their resorts by 2030. “We’ve tried all the electric snowmobiles out there and nothing beats Taiga’s Nomad,” remarked Per Grånas, Head of Procurement at SkiStar, emphasizing their satisfaction with Taiga’s superior range, performance and reliability. “Taiga has contributed to positioning us as leaders in the electric transition in Sweden and ensuring we meet our customers’ expectations by putting sustainability at the forefront of our decision making.”

In Sweden, Taiga also says that through Motorbutiken Klövsjö as its first local authorized retailer, it is making the Nomad electric snowmobile accessible to individual customers in the region. “We’re proud to be taking this next step in representing Taiga in Sweden”, said Mattias Höglund, Chairman and co-owner, of Motorbutiken Klövsjö. “After assisting Taiga with the first major delivery of more than 40 electric snowmobiles in Sweden last February, we are delighted to be Taiga’s official retailer and service provider in Sweden and to help customers fulfill their dream of owning an electric snowmobile”.

Expanding its reach into the French Alps, Taiga announces Motor 73 as its first service provider in France. Based in La Plagne, Motor 73 will deliver and provide local service to reservation holders and customers in the area.

“We are very proud to start this next growth phase as we strategically expand our sales in the European markets,” said Sam Bruneau, CEO and co-founder of Taiga. “Taiga remains dedicated to driving innovation and sustainability in the off-road industry, and we look forward to also bringing our award-winning electric personal watercraft (PWC) to the region in the near future.”
