Get on Board with the Bad Boy Buggies® Recoil® iS Crew

September 16, 2014

The Recoil iS Crew has room for four and much more

AUGUSTA, GA — Get on board or get left behind. The Recoil® iS Crew is the newest all-electric vehicle from Bad Boy Buggies® and is the only model that offers two forward-facing bench seats as well as a cargo bed. This relentless hunting machine is built for the whole team.

The Recoil iS Crew also features 2015 model-year updates that will extend across the entire Bad Boy Buggies Sport Series product line, designed to offer riders enhanced comfort and style. Model year changes include contoured bench seats with high backs, new three-spoke comfort-grip steering wheel, increased dashboard storage, more ergonomic controls, new tire options and Realtree’s newest camouflage option, Realtree® Max 5™.

Like all Bad Boy Buggies vehicles, the Recoil iS Crew is manufactured by the E-Z-GO Division of Textron Inc.
The Recoil iS Crew offers four-wheel independent suspension for a smooth ride. To maximize electric performance, the vehicle's 72-volt electric drivetrain features AC Drive technology, offering longer range and greater, more sustained performance between charges than traditional DC-powered drivetrains. When additional traction is needed, locking front and rear differentials direct the vehicle's power to the wheels that need it most, powering the vehicle through the toughest terrain.

"We’re very excited about the launch of the 2015 Bad Boy product lineup, which features the all new four-passenger Recoil iS Crew," said Eric Bondy, Vice President, Consumer for Bad Boy Buggies. “Bad Boy continues providing products to help customers dominate their trail ahead, with range, power, performance and unmatched silence.”
“Bad Boy takes pride in revolutionizing and providing new experiences for the outdoor enthusiasts, whether a hunter or a recreational rider,” Bondy said. “Since our founding, we’ve delivered innovative vehicle options and will continue to be the leader in the electric and hybrid space.”

The Recoil iS Crew features two forward-facing bench seats to accommodate up to four passengers plus a 5.9 cu. ft. cargo bed for hauling everything needed for a day’s outdoor adventure.

Safety features such as an occupant protective structure (OPS), three-point seat belts and side safety nets are standard on the Recoil iS Crew.

The Recoil iS Crew is available in matte black, matte green, flame red, Realtree Xtra™ camouflage, or in Realtree Max 5™.

The Recoil iS Crew will be available in October 2014 from Bad Boy Buggies Authorized Dealers. To learn more, or to find your local dealer, visit
