T3 Motion, Inc., a producer of clean/green technology, announced the launch of a pretty cool-looking “power sports electric vehicle” at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California over the weekend. The T3 has traditionally been used by law enforcement, but is apparently ready for consumers now.
“T3 Motion’s initial focus on law enforcement facilitated its expansion into additional professional markets, particularly private security, military, and government,” the company notes.
“There are over 3,000 T3 Motion vehicles in operation, spanning nearly 30 countries worldwide and logging over 20,000,000 miles. These vehicles are currently used by the Pentagon, U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), police departments, cities, municipalities, universities, airports, ports, military bases and other high-profile venues.”
Now it’s coming to consumers, with the following bragging rights:
- operating cost of less than 1 cent per mile
- 400 mpg
- a “hot-swappable, plug-and-play battery module design that allows continuous vehicle operation without the downtime normally associated with the charging process”
- 100% electric
- charges in less than 3 hours
- 25-40 miles per charge
- camera/GPS option
Looks like a fun, nifty vehicle.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
