In February VICE Media spent a week at the Taiga R&D facility to produce the first episode in their new feature series titled RE:GENERATION.

The production of the episode took place during the final assembly of the Taiga Nomad and Ekko snowmobiles that were unveiled in early March. In the video, Taiga CEO Sam Bruneau explains how the company began, the challenges faced and the exhilarating feeling of riding an electric snowmobile.

“with electric snowmobiles, you don’t have the loud idle of the engine. You can hear the wind, you can hear the skis, you can hear the carving. But the biggest difference is when you just stop… and then everything is quiet”.
