T3 Electric Vehicle Launched (for Consumers)

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.

(Note: I’m not seeing prices for the vehicle on the site. Let us know if you happen to find them.)
