DRR USA is proud to reveal the Stealth Electric ATV (E-ATV), a battery powered unit that offers a smooth, silent riding experience. This prototype Electric ATV is the first adult all-terrain vehicle of its kind. Most other electric all-terrain vehicles are small, can only travel short distances, and are made for children. Comparable in size to a 600cc adult utility four wheeler and comparable in power to a 300cc four wheeler, the DRR Stealth was developed to support search and rescue personnel, ecologists, environmentalists, hobbyists, and recreationalists. It’s a vehicle capable of assisting in the field, all without releasing carbon dioxide into the environment.
SEARCH AND RESCUE
During search and rescue hearing cries for help is difficult over the loud noise of gas-powered units. The DRR Stealth Electric ATV is completely silent providing rescue workers with a potential life saving advantage.
The DRR Stealth has significant environmental benefits eliminating both carbon emissions and noise pollution. A standard ATV can release over 120 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere with a single tank of gas. It can also clock in at approximately 80 on a decibel meter. The Stealth Electric ATV is both clean and silent.
BATTERY LIFE / REMOVAL
Replacing the battery takes less than three minutes and requires no heavy lifting.
To charge the DRR Stealth Electric ATV plug it into any three-prong outlet. It has a quick 6-hour charging period to get back on the trail faster. The 72 volt, 4-kilowatt lithium ion battery is not only lighter, but it charges quicker, supports a charge longer, is less harmful and can tolerate colder temperatures compared to traditional lead acid batteries.
As technology advances, DRR hopes to improve battery charge as well as develop solar powered charging stations.
Traveling up to 35 miles at maximum speed uphill with a single battery pack, an eight-hour day of intermittent work is completely possible without recharging. An optional second battery pack can extend the range up to 65 miles.
A full easy to read digital dashboard provides the rider with all essential information at a glance. The dashboard has an odometer, speedometer, and a battery charge indicator.
Steering is easy with the DRR Stealth ATV. The unit requires no shifting while the gearless system provides linear and consistent power on most terrains.
Daytime running lights, light up dark wooded areas. Brake lights inform the rider behind the E-ATV to slow down or stop. When the brakes are applied, the electric motor shuts down. This prevents damage to the motor and saves energy so the battery charge can last longer.
Turn-Signal development is in progress.
Four disc-brakes mean twice the stopping power. Decreasing downhill speed is easy with the newer wave rotors that expel dirt, grass, and other debris. This allows the braking system to perform better while doubling the brake pad life.
The front racks can carry a load of up to 125 pounds while the rear racks can carry up to 240 pounds.
SUSPENSION AND SHOCKS
Dual a-arm suspension eliminates bump steer and makes for a smoother ride. The shocks in front and rear will reduce fatigue and provide a more comfortable experience. Adjust the shocks with five adjustable pre-load settings, variable spring rate, and extended travel.
The Stealth Electric ATV has 12 inches of ground clearance. More ground clearance means tackling tougher terrain with ease. The smooth bottom chassis glides over obstacles and debris.
FOOT WELLS AND FOOT PEGS
Completely enclosed footwells keep the rider's feet where they belong while protecting them from sticks and other objects. Nerf bars can be risky and cause the tire to grab the rider’s foot and jerk them from the ATV, the DRR Stealth’s foot well design eliminates that risk. Included for rescue personnel is a special foot peg that allows a second rider to sit behind the driver without interfering with their foot space.
At DRR, the things we care most about are family, environment, and providing the best product we possibly can for our customers.
The owner of DRR USA originally created the company after experiencing an ATV accident involving her youngest son. At the time, children's ATVs did not always have proper safety features. They were too narrow and often tipped over. To solve the safety issues, she decided to develop an ATV she thought would help protect her family while they enjoyed their favorite hobby. The result was a wider ATV, with slip-resistant seats, a safety tether, brake lights, daytime running lights, and fully enclosed floorboards.
That vision took off and ultimately created DRR USA, a small business headquartered in Brunswick, Ohio. For nearly twenty years, DRR has provided safe ATVs to kids all over the United States. Our customers have over 99 National Championships under their belts in TT, motocross, flat-track, and cross-country racing. While DRR is proud of its history, we are branching out into new territory with the electric ATV while still offering family adventure, lifetime memories, and passion for the outdoors.
