February 3, 2000 ATV Staff Report

To be hip and a step ahead of the crowd is something we strive for at the Connection. Whether it's pushing a quad to its limits in a review, or giving you the information you need to make informed decisions when buying an ATV. -- In short, we make a special effort in publishing the earliest information on the latest news. However, even we were surprised to learn about this new line of Cargo All Terrain Vehicles (CATV) from Pug Power.
The Yazoo Power Equipment Company has changed its name to Pug Power as part of a corporate-wide image overhaul. The new name and image stems from its new management structure and refocused business objectives. The company fully intends to become a dominant player in certain targeted segments of the All-Terrain Vehicle market. Plans call for increasing their market share through innovative design and ambitious marketing efforts. Pug Power is hoping their latest venture will keep the tide rolling and take the company into the heart of the affordable CATV segment.
Because this information is so new, we only have a few photos and specifications. We're currently working with Pug Power in obtaining more information and a possible test machine of these three distinct series of CATVs. We'll publish the information as soon as it becomes available.
