Electric Scooter Prototype Delivered to Florida Dealer

Requiring only a four hour charge, the lithium ion-powered electric scooter has a top speed of 40 MPH and a range of 60 miles.

Published: 30-May-2007

negotiations for the sale of a fleet of electric scooters to a significant vehicle dealer in Florida have progressed to the field testing stage. Last week Armor shipped a lithium-ion battery powered scooter, developed and rigorously tested over the past 18 months by Armor's EPS partner, to the dealer for performance evaluation and demonstration.

The scooter's lithium-ion EPS system was designed specifically for use in resort rental fleets. Armor believes the battery system will outlast traditional lead acid systems by a factor of 4-5, significantly reducing the fleet operator's maintenance, replacement and downtime expenses. Requiring only a four hour charge, the scooter has a top speed of 40 MPH and a range of 60 miles.

GM, which donated the now missing EV1 to the National Museum of American History, happens to be one of the Smithsonian Institution's biggest contributors, which seems a strange coincidence on the EVe of "Who Killed the Electric Car?".

Tesla Motors, a four-year-old Silicon Valley start-up, has raised $60 million and spent $25 million developing a two- seat Roadster that will sell for between $85,000 and $100,000.

There are so few green 'stars' at the British International Motor Show this year because there doesn't seem to be that much demand for them. Pictured is Axiam microcar similar to electric version debuted in London this week, along with Smart EV.
