Challenging Preconceptions: How do EVs do in the cold?

Cold has long been considered the Achilles’ heel of electric vehicles, with concerns about performance and autonomy plaguing the electric vehicle industry. However, we are challenging these preconceptions head-on, demonstrating that electric technology can thrive even in the most frigid conditions. The use of our advanced proprietary thermal management system allows Nomad to be efficient even in the harshest of climates.

Supporting Carbon Neutrality: Nomad at the Princess Elisabeth Station

One of the most notable deployments of Nomad is in Antarctica, where it plays a crucial role in supporting a Belgian research station, The Princess Elisabeth. Supported by the International Polar Foundation, this station stands as a beacon of sustainability, striving to maintain carbon neutrality in one of the most environmentally sensitive regions of the planet. The selection of Nomad for transportation within this station underscores its reliability and efficiency, even in the extreme cold of the Antarctic continent.


Enhancing Research Capabilities: Nomad in the Polar Continental Shelf Program

Similarly, in the Arctic, Nomad is making its mark as part of the Polar Continental Shelf Program (PCSP), led by Polar Knowledge Canada and Environment and Natural Resources Canada. This initiative aims to conduct field research across the Canadian Arctic, spanning various scientific disciplines from anthropology to zoology. By utilizing Nomad, researchers can confidently navigate the treacherous terrain, knowing they are not only reducing their carbon footprint but also ensuring they are able to explore remote locations safely and efficiently.

The Technology behind Nomad and Sustainable Performance

What sets Nomad apart is its ability to combine sustainability with performance. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, including an advanced thermal management system and a proprietary tractive unit, it offers power and reliability without compromising on environmental responsibility. With its silent operation and zero emissions, this electric snowmobile allows riders to experience the pristine beauty of the polar regions without disturbing the delicate ecosystems that inhabit these landscapes.

Paving the Way for a Sustainable Future

The success of Nomad in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration. Alongside organizations like the International Polar Foundation and Polar Knowledge Canada, we are helping to pave the way for a more sustainable future in exploration and research. Whether it’s facilitating research in the Arctic or supporting operations in Antarctica, Nomad is revolutionizing the way we approach exploration in extreme environments.
