Myers Motors two-seat vehicle- Click above for high-res image gallery

Myers Motors unveiled the NMG2 (or whatever its final name will be) back in September, and the company is already prepared to take pre-orders for the two-seat electric trike. The car's base price is $29,995 but, if a thousand people drop $250 on a pre-order, the price for everyone will drop by $5,000 (actually, for every 200 people who pre-order, Myers can get volume discounts and so will drop the price by $1,000). Myers will wait until June 5, 2010 to see how many pre-orders they have and set the final price then. Throw in an estimated Federal tax credit of $2,499.50, and Myers says the best possible price will be $22,495.50.

Of course, this is a vehicle and so there will be options. The only information on these released thus far are two upgraded battery packs. The base vehicle ships will a 60-mile li-ion pack, but 80-mile and 100-mile packs will also be available for $2,500 and $5,000 respectively. Myers says that more information will be made available later. Thanks to Sean P. for the tip!

      $5000.00 for 40 miles more range, I would do that in a heart beat. My car is still not looking bad for these ranges, I though prices have come down for batteries?

      If anybody's interested, it looks like the name of the NMG2 is now the DUO (Doesn't Use Oil). It's up on Myers' site.

      I like it a lot too, it is a very original design. This would also make a great rental car for those island getaways.

      I have always liked the Sparrow,this one looks even better.

      Assuming this and the Aptera 2e are similarly priced, the Aptera will have 2 - 3 times the range (and I suspect efficiency, given its extremely low drag coefficient) and much more cargo space. I wish both companies success.

      Huh. Given recent events, Myers just might leapfrog Aptera and get this two-seater NMG to market first. Kudos to them if they can pull it off.

      Like its one-seat predecessor, this "Duo" is "troll doll cute." Lots of folks on a budget would be more than happy to use it as their daily commuter, if you ask me.

      They need to release more information, however, if they want to secure sufficient pre-orders. We have yet to learn any details about its interior, instrumentation, charging options, and safety features. For example, will it have airbags? Have they crash tested it, even though it is categorized as a "motorcycle"? Let's hope Myers will fill in those blanks in the near future.

        I like the Aptera's looks better and I believe it's coefficient drag is less but am not sure.
        The Aptera's range is 120 for the EV, when last I checked. Jay Leno says it is very quiet, no wind noise. If the prices were the same I would very much rather have the Aptera.

        As far as crash testing, I guess they could do it voluntarily but motorcycles are not required go through it.

        Yes, thoughs are a lot of blanks.

        I saw a 10 year old Corbin Sparrow last night. He still goes 20 miles on his lead acid.
