Frontiers North Adventures and Red River College unveil the EV Tundra Buggy
Aug. 24, 2021—We have exciting news to share today! Together with Red River College (RRC) we will unveil a new zero-emission vehicle technology initiative. The Electric Vehicle Tundra Buggy® (EV Tundra Buggy) is a collaborative, proof-of-concept project that oversaw the conversion of a Tundra Buggy in our touring fleet from diesel-powered to battery electric.The EV Tundra Buggy was made possible through the province’s new Conservation and Climate Fund, and the Vehicle Technology Centre (VTCI)—a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Manitoba’s heavy vehicle manufacturing sector—and in-kind support and technical services from RRC’s Vehicle Technology & Energy Centre (VTEC).
“The Manitoba government is committed to supporting environmental projects like the EV Tundra Buggy that beautifully blends our commitment to environmental sustainability, green energy and the entrepreneurial spirit of our province,” said Conservation and Climate Minister, Sarah Guillemard.
