UK-based Ultra Motor Company launched its new range of ultra motor electric scooters in Tamil Nadu.

The company launched Marathon, a first-of-its-kind electric scooter in the high range category, while continuing with its present high sped electric scooter "Velociti." Marathon would deliver a range of upto 100 kms on a single charge. It comes with a 250 watt motor and a power battery that helps it move at a speed of 25 km per hour.

Mr Ganesh Mahalingam, Managing Director, Ultra Motor India, said Marathon, priced at Rs 32,500, was targetted at those who were using scooter and moped and looking at economy and utility.


Powered by advanced lithium-ion batteries and two 67bhp (50kW) electric motors to drive the front and rear axles, the Mixim is a four-wheel-drive car with a theoretical top speed of 112mph and a potential maximum range of 156 miles.

Dodge ZEO is 2+2 electric muscle car for the 21st century powered by 200kW electric drive with 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and range of 250 miles.

The Air Car may do better than fuel-cell cars, but experts say that using grid power to charge a battery-powered electric vehicle is much more efficient than using electricity to compress and store the same amount of energy in a tank.
