Yvon Martel, from Chicoutimi, is the proud inventor of a unique machine called the MTT-136 (''My Track Technology''), which consists of an aluminum box that houses an electric motor driving the 136'' snowmobile track around it. A handlebar system is fitted to one end of the box.

Depending on the battery, charging times vary from 15 minutes to eight hours.

The MTT-136 can reach speeds of 40 km/h and pull a sled over a distance of about 220 kilometres.
