EV Gabriola


There will always be people who think a vehicle needs to be capable speeds of 100km/h with a range of 400kms.
But how many of us actually have these requirements, daily?
How many of us really need 7 seats,?
and, yes, some of us have cottages.

OK, so, let's start with the retired, empty nest'ers who need to go to bingo and get groceries, you know, the ones who impulsively buy Prius's or Smart4Two's.

... and, if we're saving big money by using small EV's on a daily basis, then we can certainly afford to rent a van for our occasional camping weekends.

What we really need is a small, relatively light weight, 2 or 3 seater.
  • Full body with doors, openable windows and cargo storage
  • Proper suspension
  • Hydraulic brakes
  • Seat belts, turn signals, running lights, hi/low head lights, brake lights
  • Reverse Gear
  • Parking mechanism
  • proper instrumentation
  • speedometer
  • turn signals, hi/low beam, etc...
  • battery status
  • USB-Phone charger

  • A typical range of 100k, with discrete modular battery packs, the ability to charge or swap batteries quickly via a smart solar-panel roof and an onboard EV-Charger.

    It does NOT need to perform at highway speeds, but, it NEEDS to have adequate torque in order to handle city driving conditions and moderate hills fully loaded.

    The following are examples of
    'hmm...', 'kool'
    but still not right.
