THE NEW UXV 500I G INTEGRATED
GENERATOR UTV AND KYMCO’S
RETURNING 500I AND 700I UTVS
Kymco’s 2015 UXV 500i G is a special model of the UXV 500i Turf with
an integrated 5000-watt generator
powered by the vehicle’s 500cc gas
engine. The generator doesn’t intrude
on the vehicle’s cabin or cargo space
and brings serious electric power anywhere the 4WD vehicle can go. First
responders and workers in construction
and maintenance fields will find it easy
to bring power to difficult locations with
the UXV 500i G. They’ll travel in comfort, thanks to the standard soft-top
and full windshield.
Kymco’s sport utility UXV 700i and
UXV 500i UTVs are all built on the same
59-inch-wide chassis, which fits in
some full-size pickups. Double-A-arm
front and rear suspension with a rear
sway bar offers 7. 5 inches of travel at
Engine choices and accessory packages distinguish the various models.
Two different engines supply the power—700is get a 695cc, single-cylinder,
fuel-injected, four-valve, single-overhead-cam powerplant, and 500is have
a double-overhead-cam, four-valve,
single-cylinder mill. There’s also a carbureted value model of the 500.
All models have fully automatic, dual-range continuously variable transmissions with engine braking and selectable 2WD/4WD with front differential
lock. Turf models also have an unlockable rear differential to prevent damage to lawns and for easier turning on
