The Vectrix zero emission vehicle wants to offer us performance, style, comfort, and convenience. It has a top speed of 62 miles per hour and can accelerate from 0-50 in 6.8 seconds. It's rated to have an average range of 40-60 miles with a maximum range of 68 miles on a single charge.
Power is generated to the Vectrix in two different ways. The primary method is an on-board charger which plugs into any standard 110/220V electrical outlet for a full charge within a reported two hours. Plus a regenerative braking system helps extend battery life. The battery pack itself has an estimated life of 10 years.
Is America ready for a high performance electric scooter? It may well be a hit in urban areas but most folks will probably still want the convenience (and range) of a regular old car. Plus, at over $10,000, you'll definitely feel the cost of emissions-free transportation.See Also:
