We’re not sure about what happens when trees fall, but when this 100-percent electric off-roader moves through the forest, it doesn’t make a sound — no matter who’s listening.
Built to let hunters track their prey noiselessly, the QuietKat is a versatile vehicle that runs on long-lasting lithium batteries that enable the lightweight ride to go long distances at low speed.
Set on four-inch-wide tread tires that grip difficult terrain with ease, the QuietKat’s top-of-the-line Rancher model weighs just 145 pounds, can hit a top speed of 32 MPH, goes 30 to 40 miles on a single battery charge, and then folds up after use for easy transport back home.
Featuring an aluminum frame, rear mud guards and hydraulic disc brakes at its front and rear, the seven-HP Ranger can carry up to 325 pounds and provide its driver with alert updates on battery life, distance traveled, speed and other crucial information via a digital display.
Made in the U.S., the “construction of QuietKat has taken no shortcuts” and it is “quality from the ground up.” That’s not just lip service, as each one of the $5,050-and-up Kats comes with a lifetime warranty against defective workmanship for the frame and swing arm.
