Electric Truck To Cost Less Than $25K

g3-truckFrom contractors to corporate delivery fleets, a new electric truck could provide businesses with much needed fuel conservation. The G-3 plug-in electric truck has a payload of 1,000 pounds and can top 85 miles per hour, according to a press release.

The vehicle is probably better suited to companies with smaller work radiuses, as it has a range of about 100 miles and requires four hours to charge. Recharging the vehicle uses about a dollar’s worth of electricity, according to its makers, Green Star Products Inc. and Global Green Cars Inc.

The vehicle recently was used as a pace car at Rocky Mountain Raceway, Aug. 29 in West Valley City, Utah.

The vehicle may come to market sometime in 2010, with crash testing predicted to start in January and production coming by next summer.

The makers note that this will be the perhaps the most “American” truck on the market since 70 percent of its parts and labor will be American.

The vehicle will feature a starting sticker price of about $25,000. Use of federal and state incentives could bring the cost to less than $20,000.

One thought on “Electric Truck To Cost Less Than $25K

  1. 1. Batteries will become more efficient on the whole and their price will drop, whereas the oil will simply go up and up as it becomes more scarce. As simple as that.

    2. The range of noticeable EVs are sufficient to meet the daily driving needs of more than 95% of drivers ((The vast majority of people (95%) drive less than 100/km a day, 82% of the respondents said they drive 40 miles or less a day, with an average daily driving distance of 27 miles.)).

    3. I’m hopeful that the charge network will extend the select districts to nation-wide scale throughout the world, and this environment can usher in active private investings in EVs.

    4. I remain confident that it could give rise to multiple times as much investing effect, so to speak, some billions of investing, this simple deployment, could call into the most-sought energy independence and solid recovery around the world.
