Detroit-based Eco V finally ready to make $12,000 low-speed EV
To our eyes, the vehicle design isn't exactly a work of art, but the company says the focus should be on the utility factor. The EcoV EV can be reconfigured as a four- or six-passenger vehicle as well as a pickup truck SUV. Possible uses are parking-enforcement vehicle and delivery vehicle. EcoV Electric also says the vehicle will be constructed with a full roll cage and crash-test plans are in the works.
Led by ex-General Motors engineer Richard Marks, EcoV Electric last crossed our radar in 2010. At the time, the word was that the vehicle would have a top speed of 25 miles per hour and a single-charge range of between 25 and 40 miles. The company started making noise in 2006 and a year later put out the call for potential investors. After all these years, you can check out the new EcoV video below.
