Polaris Launches 2nd MRZR-D2

Greater flexibility for missions choosing between gas, diesel, and two or four seats
Polaris Government & Defense, a division of the global powersports leader Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), today announced the expansion of the MRZR platform to now include a two-seat turbo diesel (MRZR-D2), less than one year from the launch of the first turbo diesel MRZR, a four-seat version. As part of a highly innovative commercial company, Polaris Government & Defense provides customers with the best technology and capabilities tailored to their needs – backed by robust, large-scale design, development, testing and production of those vehicles.

In 2013 we introduced the MRZR, which led to a rapid fielding of a critical capability for Special Forces, and subsequently the selection of the MRZR as the platform for the SOCOM LTATV Program,” Jed Leonard, Director, Polaris Government & Defense said. “The pursuit of innovation and capability improvement at Polaris continues. And with the launch of the two-seat variant, our customers have even greater flexibility for their missions and can choose between gas, diesel, and now two or four seats for their MRZRs.”

The MRZR-D2 complements the current platform line-up, which are all V-22 transportable and modular in design.
-MRZR 2: Gas, 2-4 seats, 1 litter mount, 1,000 lb payload
-MRZR 4: Gas, 4-6 seats, 2 litter mounts, 1,500 lb payload
-NEW MRZR-D2: Diesel, 2-4 seats, 1 litter mount, 1,000 lb payload, 80 percent more range than gas, more auxiliary power
-MRZR-D4: Diesel, 4-6 seats, 2 litter mounts, 1,500 lb payload, 80 percent more range than gas, more auxiliary power

The MRZR platform is flexible and modular to support uses ranging from rapid personnel deployment, to command and control, casualty evacuation to supply transport missions. The vehicles are proven, affordable, reliable and easily maintained throughout the lifecycle with a commercial supply chain and the Polaris global network. MRZRs have redefined ultralight, off-road mobility for military vehicles and are mission critical for expeditionary forces in the US and allied countries to meet current and future mission demands and threats. And because MRZRs are in service throughout the world, there is a high degree of interoperability and commonality among US and allied forces.
