PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - An all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is a motorized off-road vehicle that is designed for commuting on four wheels with non-pneumatic or low-pressure tires with a handlebar for steering control. All-terrain vehicles are primarily subdivided into two categories: the type I category includes all-terrain vehicles intended for use by a single rider with no passenger and type II ATVs are designed for use by a rider along with the passenger. Type II ATVs are equipped with a designated seating position behind the rider. All-terrain vehicles are best known for their maneuverability in rough terrain and off-road capabilities. The sturdy vehicle design allows better protection from harsh operating environments as compared to conventional vehicles. All-terrain vehicles have applications in sports, forestry, surveying, agriculture, and military and defense. ATVs have gained popularity over the past few years as they enable access to remote areas and rough terrains and offer a convenient way to carry equipment and supplies. All-terrain vehicles are mainly used in off-road environments; however, in recent years, several regions have permitted the use of these vehicles on public roads as well. According to a report from Grand View Research, the global all-terrain vehicle market size was valued at USD 3.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1% from 2019 to 2025. Active EV stocks in news today include: Volcon Inc. (NASDAQ: VLCN), Li Auto Inc. (NASDAQ: LI), Lucid Group (NASDAQ: LCID), ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO), Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV).
The growing popularity of outdoor entertainment activities such as off-road sports activities, increasing number of trails and adventure parks, and high demand for all-terrain vehicles for military and agricultural applications are key factors driving the market growth. Increasing purchasing power and disposable income in developed, as well as emerging economies, are expected to drive the demand for all-terrain vehicles over the forecast period. The demand for all-terrain vehicles has increased in the agricultural sector for various farm-related applications such as weed control, field plowing, fence mending, animal handling, and general transportation. All-terrain vehicles are versatile and are also used in applications such as construction, manufacturing, utilities, search and rescue, and mining. Prominent companies are providing sponsorships and organizing off-road racing events and adventure sports events to gain higher product visibility and acquire new customers. Demand for gasoline ATVs is increasing owing to higher demand in military and sports applications. Heavy-duty all-terrain vehicles are primarily equipped with diesel engines, as they are used for powerful towing and material handling applications. Electric all-terrain vehicles are gaining popularity in North America and Europe as an alternative for ATVs operating on gasoline and diesel. Environmental concerns and fluctuating prices of diesel and gasoline are the factors that are expected to drive the demand for electric vehicles globally. The introduction of more powerful electric motors provides a performance advantage to electric ATVs to compete with gasoline and diesel variants. The former has a quiet engine and are hence considered suitable for activities such as hunting and wildlife rescue.

Attendees were able to experience the easy-to-ride capabilities and near-silent electric motor of the Volcon Grunt in a welcoming atmosphere. The event showcased the accessibility of the Grunt – a motorcycle with no clutch or gears that anyone with bicycle experience can easily ride – as well as the power of electric propulsion and the forward-thinking sustainable design that Volcon has created.

Today, almost 80 percent of U.S. daily commutes are done alone in gas-powered passenger vehicles. Not only is this inefficient – leaving three or more empty seats in each car – it also a major environmental concern. Purpose-built around today's drivers, ElectraMeccanica's SOLO EVs provide a much-needed tech-forward, eco-friendly solution that addresses the empty space between micro-mobility (like bikes and scooters) and traditional transportation.
