It appeared back in 1916, when the very first patent was issued in the United States for the invention of a unique vehicle with a front ski and a rear track. However, in those years, the production of these miracle machines was never started. The Bombardier snowmobile first appeared in 1937 when the Canadian Joseph-Armand Bombardier realized his idea for the production of tracks. The very first model was a fairly large indoor seven-seater unit.
Of course, the first Bombardier snowmobile had little in common with modern models, however, the main task - the transport - it performed well. This car was indispensable in winter. It was used both for industrial and civil purposes, and during the war years - even in the military. The second model - a more advanced snowmobile "Bombardier" was not long in coming. In 1942, the 12-seater B-12 appeared. By 1951, about 300 thousand units were already produced by these machines.
Bombardier has always sought to create a compact and fastest snowmobile. The Bombardier of the first two episodes was a little like the car of his dreams. But at that time there were no technical conditions that would allow him to do this. Only in 1959 did Bombardier realize his dream. With the help of light and small power units, he managed to assemble a model that is a bit similar to modern counterparts. The novelty was called the Ski-Doo Bombardier Snowmobile.
The production of new cars grew. Buyers really liked the Bombardier invention. "Ski-Doo Bombardier" is a snowmobile that performed household tasks and was an excellent tool used for entertainment. Even competitions began to be organized. People drove on snowmobiles, and sales grew incredibly.
Recently, Canadian manufacturer Bombardier was renamed BRP. At the same time, the Bombardier snowmobiles did not become worse in technical parameters due to the brand change. Ski-Doo and today is considered one of the best cars for riding in the snow. Each BRP brand snowmobile is a combination of the latest technology, ease of operation and comfort.
Today, Bombardier Recreational Products launches products under two brands: Ski-Doo or Lynx. The latter was formerly Finnish, but in 1993 it was acquired by BRP. Like the Ski-Doo, the Lynx Bombardier snowmobile was aimed at Europe and Russia.
