The NMG: Seriously Whacked EV... Available Now

Here we have a...uh...vehicle...that is is looking to change the way people think about transportation. I'm not sure I have much faith in its ability to do that, but it's certainly worth talking about. Myers Motors, the folks who make this three-wheeler call it the it's great! buy chinese herbal viagra MM NMG (No More Gas) but as I've researched this story, in my head, I've been calling it the EVX WTF. EV for Electric Vehicle, X cause it sounds cool, and I think you know what WTF stands for.

The MM NMG (EVX WTF really is a better name) is officially classified as a motorcycle, but it's got all the comforts of a car. The top speed is 70 mph and viagra 100mg it's 100% electrically powered. Plus, the entire car is "built for safety" a feature that you won't see on many motorcycles. That's the good news.

The bad news is that it can only carry one person and it will only carry that one person 100 miles on a full charge. Then, once you've run out of juice, you'll need six to eight hours to recharge the batteries before you can head out again. You might think that a little car like this, without many components or even much battery life might be somewhat easy on the wallet. It's not. A new NMG will set you back about $25,000. Admittedly, this is much cheaper than most other EVs on the market. But with only one seat, and a seriously crazy design, we're not sure who'd go for it

So far, its unique design has only brought it one success...a role in Austin Powers' Goldmember. Their website ensures prospective buyers that they'll get more attention in an NMG than in a $100,000 sports car (a Tesla Roadster maybe), and they're probably right. But it's going to be a very different kind of buy propecia attention. If Myers Motors wants to get people to buy into the idea of a small, ultra-efficient, commuter vehicle, I think they're going to have to do something a little more traditional... and a hell of a lot cheaper.

That's the old Corbin Sparrow, which has been around for at least a decade.

I'm curious about that. I wonder how well any BEVs are actually selling recently, since in 2004 and 2005 there was only one BEV (not NEV) automobile sold in the US.
Only goes 100 miles on a charge

When we're talking about an urban commuter vehicle, 100 miles is perfect for over 80% of the it's great! female cialis pills people who drive in America. Check the DOT figures ---- 50% drive less than 25 miles per day, 80% drive less than 50 miles per day.
Want increased range? Talk to our government. They are looking the other way when it comes to the monopoly on Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) technology held by Chevron/Cobasys. These are the same batteries that power the Toyota RAV4 EV for 120 to 140 miles on a single charge. And, recharge in 3 hours. Toyota, along with Panasonic, the battery manufacturer, dropped the RAV4 EV and its NiMH battery packs when they lost a patent infringement law suit brought by Chevron/Cobasys in 2002.
So, here is cialis visa the female herbal levitra perfect battery for BEVs and HEVs and an oil company, aided by their pals in government, is keeping them off the market. In a hybrid, NiMH batteries would yield a "battery only" range of 100 miles or more, adequate for virtually all city driving needs. According to Wally Rippel, formerly of Airovironment and now with Tesla, if all cars were now powered by this technology, our dependence on foreign oil, and the volume of pollution, would drop 90%.
IF you still need to make that longer trip a couple of times a year, consider renting from Hertz, Enterprise, or one of only here beta blockers and levitra the other car rental organization. That'll cost you about $30 to $60 a day. A lot cheaper than SUV payments.
