Our Electric Vehicle Tundra Buggies

Going Electric on the tundra

Frontiers North Adventures is converting Tundra Buggies® to Electric Vehicle (EV) technology, Learn more about the innovations behind this transition and the sustainable benefits EV Tundra Buggies in the subarctic offer. 

Creation of the First EV Tundra buggy

In August 2021 Frontiers North, supported by the Conservation and Climate Fund (Government of Manitoba) proudly unveiled the first EV Tundra Buggy® in collaboration with: 

  • Red River College's Vehicle Technology & Energy Centre (VTEC) 
  • Vehicle Technology Centre (VTCI) 

Frontiers North was one of eight recipients across the Conservation and Climate Fund, which supports projects that incorporate actions to combat and adapt to climate change and protect the environment. This is part of a bigger picture in Manitoba's vision to become Canada's cleanest, greenest, most climate resilient province.

Converting the entire fleet


Frontiers North has an ambitious plan to convert our entire fleet of touring Tundra Buggies to EV by the end of the decade. 

One of the company's goals is to continually seek out opportunities in our commitment to sustainability. Frontiers North strives to align with organizations that are like minded and continue to seek out opportunities that reduce their environmental impact. Frontiers North Adventures are proud to be a Certified Adventure Travel Operator.

What kind of power is used to charge the ev tundra buggies?

Our EV Tundra buggies are charged using hydroelectric power that is produced here in Manitoba, Canada. Hydro power is a renewable source of energy and produces significantly less emissions than other conventional sources of energy. 

Reducing noIse pollution

EV Tundra Buggies offer guests a completely silent touring experience, reducing noise pollution and creating a more immersive wildlife-viewing adventure. Guests will appreciate being able to hear the sounds of the animals they are observing, as well as their guides' interpretations, without any background motor noise. This reduction in noise pollution benefits both guests and wildlife alike. 

Ev TUndra Buggy Statistics
  • 75 km (46 mi) is the average range of our newest EV Tundra Buggy when fully charged — more than enough for a day out viewing wildlife in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.
  • The EV Tundra Buggies have operated in cold temperatures of -50°C (-58°F)  and below! 
  • 15.74 tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are estimated to be eliminated by operating each EV Tundra Buggy over the course of an entire operating year. 
  • The EV Tundra Buggies operate in all three touring seasons (winter, summer and autumn). 
  • Frontiers North Adventures as of 2024 has two EV Tundra Buggies and a third one being converted right now! 
  • We are committed to converting our entire touring fleet of Tundra Buggies from diesel-powered to battery-electric by 2030. We have 12 touring Tundra Buggies in total.


The purpose of the EV Tundra Buggy is to make it easier for machines and other distractions to fade into the background of any gust's wildlife experience in Churchill. Providing both guests and the wildlife a less invasive wildlife viewing opportunity in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area.
