ZEV T3-1 MICRO
WHAT CAN YOU DRIVE FOR $5490 THAT OFFERS THE UTILITY AND QUALITY OF THIS VEHICLE?
Micro is a motorcycle sized vehicle, intended to provide the lowest
possible transportation cost, maximum hauling ability, and treated as a motor
scooter for the lowest registration cost.
Think of a 4 X 8 ft footprint as the total vehicle size,
yet able to carry three adults.
The goal was a vehicle for delivery and personal utility use that unlike a golf cart or UTV/ATV, is legal to drive on the street anywhere in the country, but sell for less than new golf carts or UTV.
The T3-1 is legal to drive without a helmet (when using seat belts) in all but two USA states. It can be driven with just a car license in many USA states. It is legal to drive everywhere as a motorcycle. In some USA states it can be treated as a Moped and driven with no license or registration
$5490 Introductory price (base silicate battery system)
$8990 Introductory price (long range lithium battery system)
Equally, we wanted the vehicle to be first class. Real glass windshield, not plastic, roll up windows, quality dashboard and upholstery, sunroof.
