Back at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica last fall, we came upon the AMPLE booth and a big sign talking about how you can save $45,000 when you pre-order one of their plug-in electric hybrids. AMPLE Motion was saying that you could get a PHEV at some point in the future by paying just $47,999 (for the E600 "Epipany" class sedan) or $29,999 (for the R300 "Robust" compact class truck) now. Of course, these vehicles don't exist just yet, but that isn't stopping AMPLE from making big claims.
When we last spoke to Ample Motion, they were offering a special deal to visitors at the Santa Monica Alt Car Expo. Namely, a steep discount on the 2010 R300 plug-in truck. Turns out the $29,999 offer is still good thanks to what the company claims was an "overwhelming response."
