Green Vehicles Triac

Posted

Pros: lithium batteries, access to car pool lane, unique look, fun to drive, a real eye catcher, turns sharp

Cons: under NDA so I can not list any

I have had mine about two months now, it is so awsome to have the great range that lithium offers over lead acid. For the cost of lithium now I do not understand why lead acid is not the standard. In my ZENN the discover batteries cost about $2, 500 to replace. Lithium batteries that cost $3,000 would increase the range from 25 miles up to about 40-45 miles. they would last 5 times longer. This means to go the same distance over time the lead acid would cost $12,500 compared to lithiums $3,000. Kind of a no brainer. Driving a stick shift was a little hard getting used to. I would have rather had automatic, but did not want to wait. The range quoted seems to be fairly accurate (100 miles @ 45MPH). I wonder how well they will do with all the 4 weeld EV's comming out this year.
Green Vehicles Triac
Description:

Finally a modern freeway commuter that knows this is the 21st century. The pure electric TRIAC proclaims to the world: "Yes, I am going to give progressive people a way to protect what they love; yes, I am going to run longer than previous EVs; and yes, I am going to do it in seriously handsome fashion." With an 80 mph top speed and an up to 100-mile range (soon, the optional capacity boost battery pack will add 25%), sustainable living is a real possibility. In fact, this zero-emissions vehicle has the extra advantage of being allowed in the carpool lane with only a single occupant. Charging takes 6 hours to go from zip to full, and is as simple as plugging in a toaster. Green Vehicles is currently taking reservations for the Triac (with a 10 percent fully refundable reservation fee). Test drives can now be reserved. The first production delivery is expected in late October 2009. The Triac will sell for $24,995.
