Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, was transported to the holy Kedarnath temple, Uttatakhand using a Polaris vehicle. The Prime Minister travelled in a Polaris Ranger 6X6 800 EFI. The off-road vehicles of Polaris are especially useful in such hilly areas and were used extensively for relief operations when flash floods had hit the region in 2013. Polaris Industries, the world leader in Off-Road and All-Terrain Vehicles operates in India through Polaris India Pvt. Ltd. The company has formidable presence across India.
