According to a report on AutoWeek
Innovations (which used to be called Hybrid Technologies
) has plans to introduce two new electric vehicles
at the 2009 New York Auto Show
next month. We've been hearing about the Inizio supercar
for a while and we're thinking it's the production version of the sportscar prototype that was sold to one lucky Sam's Club member
late last year. The quoted specifications are extremely impressive, with the Inizio reportedly able to hit 60 mph in just 4 seconds, a top speed of 170 miles per hour and a range of 200 miles per charge. Price? $139,000. If true, that's a great deal for a vehicle with that kind of performance.
The second EV that's scheduled to be shown is called the Wave. We're not sure if this is a completely new vehicle
or if it's based on an existing platform, but it's reportedly able to hit a top speed of 80 mph with a range of 170 miles per charge. Again, the reported asking price of $34,900 sounds too good to be true. Deliveries are scheduled for "sometime in 2010." We'll know more when we get to NY in a few weeks.
