Taiga Motors Corporation (“Taiga”) (TSX: TAIG), a leading developer of electric off-road vehicles, announced today the launch of its online configurator tool. Customers who have deliveries slated for this year now have the unique ability to order and customize their Orca personal watercraft.
Along with the configurator, Taiga also released model details, specifications, and colours. Taiga continues to redefine the powersport landscape by offering innovative electric technologies as well as customization designed to help customers build the perfect ride. Each customer will also be paired with a Taiga experience specialist to help tailor their Orca from configuration to demonstration experience and to final hand-off.
“We are excited to take the next step in driving preorders and fulfilling deliveries by launching our Orca online configurator,” said Samuel Bruneau, CEO of Taiga. “Our team has demonstrated an impressive agility to mitigate the production delays resulting from the global microprocessor shortage by designing a new chip architecture that will bring both watercraft and snowmobile platforms into production in 2021. We have also taken the opportunity to make additional investments to increase production capacity in our Montreal facility to meet rapidly growing demand for our watercraft.”
Taiga has expanded manufacturing and R&D activities to a second facility in Montreal that will more than double its previously planned production footprint in the interim period while its high-volume Shawinigan facility is under construction.
To address the global semiconductor shortage, Taiga has worked diligently to source alternative supplies for its vehicles and has adjusted its manufacturing processes to accommodate such alternatives. Taiga will begin production of both the Orca Carbon and Founder’s edition models this summer with initial deliveries beginning in September 2021. Alongside watercraft production, Taiga’s Orca Sport and Performance models are now expected to begin production in early 2022.
Taiga’s Orca models are born from years of testing by hundreds of users across lakes, rivers, and oceans for uncompromising access to on-water adventures. Orca Carbon and Founder’s edition models redefine the recreational watercraft experience with silent operation, a unique carbon composite hull with leading power-to-weight ratios, maintenance-free ownership, and intelligent connectivity.
