BRP To Produce Specialized Motorised Vehicles
"This decision allows us to first assemble gasoline-powered vehicles with specific requirements from our existing products for which we already have orders from the Middle East," José Boisjoli, president and CEO, said. ''We will also make the most of the technologies developed at the Centre de technologies avancées BRP-University de Sherbrooke (CTA) and produce zero emission electric vehicles."
One of the specialized products being assembled at this new facility, the prototype of the Can-Am Commander electric side-by-side vehicle, was introduced in Montréal last summer during Club BRP. In light of the reaction from dealers, distributors and the media from around the world, BRP is going ahead with marketing and selling the Can-Am Commander electric side-by-side vehicle.
"We will be using the same marketing and distribution
strategy that we used for our Can-Am Spyder roadster," Mihai Rasidescu,
vice-president, Specialized Vehicles Group, said. "We will recruit from
within our existing dealer network to develop the business and gradually expand
as market demand grows. We will go out in phases and, starting July 1, 2012,
the Can-Am Commander electric side-by-side vehicle will be on sale at some BRP dealers
