Polaris Acquiring French Electric Vehicle Firm

Polaris Industries Inc. says it is acquiring France-based Goupil Industrie SA, a manufacturer of on-road, commercial electric vehicles.

Goupil, which reported approximately $25 million in sales during calendar year 2010, will continue operating in Bourran, France, with its current staff. Polaris will add Goupil's products to its ‘growing small electric vehicle product portfolio,’ the company says.

Polaris also recently purchased Global Electric Motorcars, an American manufacturer of electric vehicles.
