Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 3,900 model year 2015 - 2019 Polaris RGR EV recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).
An incorrectly wired chassis harness can cause an incorrect throttle control signal to the electric drive motor, which can cause the vehicle to accelerate unexpectedly, posing a crash hazard.
The firm has received eight reports of the recalled ROVs accelerating unexpectedly, due to an incorrectly wired harness. There was one reported incident with two injuries outside the U.S.
This recall involves model year 2015 – 2019 Ranger EV recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs) sold in avalanche gray and pursuit camo, which were produced between April 2014, and January 2019.
The recalled vehicles have “POLARIS” printed on the front grille and beneath the doors; and “RANGER” printed on the rear fenders.
The vehicle identification number (VIN) and model number can be found on a label affixed to the vehicle frame in the left front wheel well.
The ROVs, manufactured in the U.S. and Mexico, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from February 2014, through January 2019, for about $11,900.
