Their new XP Kinetic is getting a lot of buzz as a Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV).  The company says this vehicle can go virtually anywhere.  It's been specifically engineered for electrification with a battery and electric motor replacing the fuel tank and gas-powered engine of previous versions of the UTV.  The vehicle has no grill because it has no radiator.
