Pininfarina Collaborates with Swedish Brand to Introduce Innovative All-Electric Snowmobile

Swedish manufacturer Vedde has unveiled its groundbreaking all-electric Alfa Electric Snowmobile, now available for reservations, touted as “the world’s cleanest snowmobile.” Developed in partnership with renowned Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina, this revolutionary snowmobile showcases a sleek aerodynamic profile, accentuated by contemporary color schemes such as white, gray, and orange. Boasting futuristic front and rear-end lights reminiscent of the year 3000, along with a windshield designed to ensure optimal visibility even on the most challenging terrains like the Black Diamond.

Equipped with a robust 130kW electric motor generating up to 175 horsepower and 295 ft-lbs of torque, the Alfa snowmobile offers a continuous tow load capacity of 595 pounds. With a rapid charging time of approximately 3.5 hours, it delivers an impressive range of 62 miles, facilitated by a sophisticated thermal management system enabling operation in extreme cold conditions, down to -31 degrees Fahrenheit. The Alfa pre-series is currently undergoing rigorous testing, surpassing standard specifications, in preparation for imminent deliveries.

In support of its claim as the “cleanest snowmobile,” Vedde emphasizes that the Alfa Electric produces less than 100 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Moreover, the brand has integrated recycled materials into the design, further reducing the vehicle’s carbon footprint and reaffirming its commitment to sustainability.

While the Alfa Electric marks a significant advancement in eco-friendly snowmobiling, it follows in the tracks of Taiga’s 2022 Nomad, recognized as the world’s inaugural electric snowmobile. Engineered as a versatile utility snowmobile, the Nomad boasts a robust frame capable of towing heavy loads of up to 1125 pounds. Although slightly less powerful than the Alfa, with a top speed of 120 horsepower and a similar 62-mile range, the Nomad offers comparable performance and efficiency, with a charging time of 3.5 hours, ensuring enthusiasts can hit the slopes without delay.
