I first wrote a post about the all-electric T-Rex motorcycle/three-wheeler back in February. As we said earlier then, this vehicle can go around 125 mph and has high-end range of 250 miles (125 is the low end, which shows how much of an impact a driving style can have). These Canadian-built vehicles will cost around $50,000 CDN (almost $50,000 US). The T-Rex is actually the name of the non-electric version and the EV is called the Silence PT2. Still, there are two of these blue beauties on the showroom floor here at EVS23 and they carry the T-Rex name on them. We're not here to bicker and argue about who named what, just to look at some pretty pictures. I particularly like the way the side mirrors and the headlights are two sides of the same thing.

UPDATE: corrected the USD number thanks to a new exchange rate

      You got that backwards. If "a Canadian dollar is worth $0.986 US", then the US dollar is worth more. (If a Canadian dollar were worth $0.50 US, then one US dollar would buy two Canadian dollars - i.e. the US dollar would be worth twice as much, since it would be able to purchase twice as much.) Here is a historical graph, by the way:

      Ah, Thunder and Lightning! Cute.

      Thanks, Tony.

      And Domenick, if the expo hall was open tomorrow, I'd go get you another dozen or so. :)

      I drove one of these on the freeway while they visited the Electric Vehicle Association San Diego. http://EVorBust.blogspot.com .

      While there we begged them to commit to showing up at the www.ElectricDragin.com EVent. Keeping fingers crossed...

      More pictures please. I mean, why stop at 28? Seriously though, nice to see Quebec's PT2 representin'. This monster looks like a lot of fun. Hopefully, ABG can get a test drive in the Spring. Quebec aux Printemps est tres belle.

      So how much less efficient would one off these be with 2 wheels in the back? Really I want to know... I'd trade some range for some easier to adopt engineering.

      Voice over IP (VoIP) software is used to conduct telephone-like voice conversations across the internet. There are many free VOIP Software available on the webs for download. VOIP Software is popular because VOIP phone service is often cheaper than traditional phone service, and is becoming more popular for both business and personal calls.

      People who buy such vehicles usually do not care about the price. I build trade show booths and have seen some pretty cool vehicles and plans for them. The innovation and imagination that goes into it is unbelievable sometimes.

      I know you Americans don't follow such things as what your currency is worth compared to others, but XE.com says that a Canadian dollar is worth $0.986 US today.

      Which makes $50,000 CAD equal more than $49,000 USD.

      Last week the damage was even more though... an American buying a T-Rex Lightning would have had to shell out more dollars than Canadians.

      According to the email I got from the company a few weeks ago, the "Silence" name is no longer used, and the two models are now named "T-Rex Thunder" (gasoline-powered) and "T-Rex Lightning" (battery-powered).

      Their new website isn't quite ready yet, but the preview appears to confirm the revised terminology: http://www.go-t-rex.com/
