Reasons to Invest

The UTV market is currently valued at ~$6 billion and estimated to grow with a CAGR of 6% between 2019 and 2025
We believe we will be the first high-end Elite UTV straight out of the box, delivering elite ownership, experience, and performance
Zero emission vehicles with no carbon footprint, no noise pollution, and reliable, high-performing electric batteries

Overview


The idea for the ultimate UTV is born...

In early 2015, Chris James and his film team began producing an extreme sports film, called Mod Kids USA, which documented the lives of an elite class of youngsters who race mini off-road trucks called mod karts. In our eyes, it was the most exciting sport never-to-been seen by the masses, better than NASCAR, as it’s in the dirt with jumps and berms, similar to Supercross. Over the last 5 years, that film has turned into multiple films, now being released on Prime Video.

In 2017, UTVs started to encroach on short-course racing and began growing in popularity, being more affordable than trucks. The kids in our documentary would have to leave the mod kart class at 16 years old and upgrade either to a larger truck class, which costs close to a quarter of a million, or a UTV which didn’t perform as well. 


Thus, in 2018 the idea of Battle Approved Motors was born.  Since then, as we team up with a number of Pro drivers and key brands in the industry, we have been developing our race model vehicles that will be ready by 2022.

The Solution


“We want our Electric UTV to be like Ferrari meets Tesla in the dirt.”

Computer generated rendering of vehicle currently in development

Battle Approved Motors will be one of the first high-end Elite UTVs, straight out of the box. We are eliminating the need to go to a fab shop to have a vehicle cut down with a new roll cage and numerous expensive aftermarket parts.  As our business development manager, Kenny Osborn puts it, “We are like Ferrari meets Tesla in the dirt”. Battle Approved Motors is an early-stage startup currently in the design for manufacturing, test, and validation phases.

Unlike ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), which are meant for single riders, UTVs (utility task vehicles or utility terrain vehicles) tend to be beefier and allow for “side-by-side” riding, which makes them great for families and allows them to be used on public roadways, not including state and interstate highways. Our UTV is about luxury, ownership, experience, and performance and our 3 Side-by-Side models (r101, s102, and e103) are powerful, strong, stylish, and tailor to all.

The Market


The multibillion-dollar UTV market is fast-growing

The North America ATV and UTV market was valued at USD $4.30 billion in 2018 (Source). The utility task vehicles market was valued at US $4.12 billion in 2017 and estimated to grow with a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 (Source, Source).

In 2008, the number of UTVs sold in the U.S. was around 270,000 units before the financial crisis took hold. In 2016, that number had grown to just under 411,000! (Source).

Battle Approved Motors plans to disrupt the current $6 billion industry by offering a safer professional UTV straight out of the box to the general public. These vehicles will also be street legal in over 32 states, and anyone 16 and above will be able to drive one.

Our Traction


A solid foundation with partnerships in place

In February of 2019, BAM was incorporated and in September of 2019, the concept team assembled and got to work. Our development team began working in November of that year and the manufacturing facilities were secured in February 2020. We completed the design development of our concept chassis and e-platform Battle Board in March of this year and started our partnership development team in July. We currently have two manufacturing facilities for our r101 model, one in Arizona and one in Wisconsin.

What We Do


The one-stop-shop for durability, safety, cleaner energy, and style

Our flagship model is the e103. This is a 2-seater (and 4-seater) All-Electric UTV. We believe that electric is the future and that UTV owners need a better, cleaner option. Therefore, we see ourselves as a clean tech company. Via electrification and with our 3 models, we believe we're able to provide a superior vehicle with better performance and safety features than the competition.

All Battle Approved models are to be built to withstand the harshest conditions worldwide. Using proprietary reinforced tubular frames, crash structures, and roll cages, they will be able to handle extreme winter and summer conditions. The race model also known as The Freestyle, due to the way it can corner, jump, and slide. It is able to withstand “gravel, rock, mud, ice, snow, water, and sand” thanks to its surfboard-like setup, with power and torque figures already exceed that of Rally Championship racers. The Freestyle comes in 3 models; Race Ready, Super, and Elite.

Although we are still in the early design stages, we believe our UTV model is already cooler and sleeker than any other on the market. The performance of our test vehicles has not only been smooth and fast, but due to the team we are building, we also feel we can get to market in the same timeline as our competitors.

How We Are Different


One of the first UTVs to keep up with the big dogs!

A few years ago we noticed a huge gap in the market at the race-track. There wasn’t a UTV that could perform as well as the trucks, and we believe there still isn’t today. UTVs were first introduced to help farmers move around their land easier. The fact is, UTVs were not originally designed to be powerful, race, and jump. Our vehicle will be one of the first UTVs designed to do all three. 

Computer generated rendering of vehicle currently in development

BAM is breaking away from the traditional mold for UTVs and working to build something more economical, greener, better performing, and safer than what currently exists on the market. We are simplifying the process of purchasing a UTV with our one-stop, luxury, all-in-one vehicles that can be used for recreation and performance alike. While current UTVs are mass-produced using metal that is being welded by machines in minutes, Battle Approved UTVs use Chromoly tubing (the same material used by professional racers) and are TIG welded by hand. Chromoly is a chrome-alloy steel, stronger and lighter than mild steel, more commonly used in off-road racing and top of the line bike manufacturing.

The Vision


On a mission to become the fastest growing off-road brand in North America

In 2022, we will be launching a new off-road racing class, created in partnership with DASH Radio and its founders, featuring the Race Ready model. This launch will become a key marketing platform for the progression of Battle Approved Motors and is described as  “an extremely exciting new off-road racing class for 16-year-olds and up, which will also help highlight the impact of climate change and in time promote the adoption of electric vehicles moving forward to help preserve the environment.”

Within 3-5 years we believe that Battle Approved Motors will be the fastest growing off-road brand in North America. With passion and vision behind us, we will continue to grow our income generated from our race-ready models, utilizing the technical minds of our race teams’ engineers.

OUR LEADERSHIP


Innovation lead by professional racers and successful entrepreneurs

Founded by Chris James, a former BMX racer, film-maker, and entrepreneur, Battle Approved Motors is an early-stage startup currently in the design for manufacturing, test, and validation phases. After creating and producing the successful extreme sports film series “Mod Kids USA,” available on Prime Video, James went on to work extensively on the Battle Approved Motors concept for the last five years. 

The team at BAM is now made up of both successful entrepreneurs and professional racers. Our team is currently 9 members and expected to grow to over 26 people over the next 18 months.

Why Invest


UTVs are here to stay, so let’s make them into something great

As UTVs continue to grow in popularity, with a market valued at $6 billion, we are providing a solution of the highest quality and caliber. Built with style in mind and made to withstand the harshest conditions worldwide, our UTVs are better for the environment and make it easier for consumers to get their needs met in one place. Our investors are professional racers, weekend warriors, and performance enthusiasts and now, we want to be able to give the off-road community, our supporters, and future owners, the opportunity to share in our financial goals.
