That’s the claim for this pretty cool looking “Sport Utility Truck.” And you can go 130 miles on that single charge. Not too shabby.
Powered by the revolutionary Altairnano NanoSafeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ battery pack, Phoenix MotorcarsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ zero-emission, all-electric Sport Utility Truck (SUT) can cruise on the freeway at up to 95 m.p.h. while carrying five passengers and a full payload.
The SUT has a low-cost maintenance schedule and will be introduced to fleet managers in early 2007. The company plans to produce at least 500 SUTs in 2007. […]
Phoenix is currently working on an expanded battery pack that will allow a 250 mile range, still permitting a 10 minute charge and available in late 2007.
But most importantly…what will it cost? And only 500 being made? Yikes.
Still, it’s a step in the right direction. Style and sustainability all in one. Gotta love that.
