    The Key to Cheap Electric Cars? Ditch the Steering Wheel

    Clint Finley, October 18, 2015 (Wired)

    “…With Tesla focusing on the luxury market, [Mark Frohnmayer] saw a big need for an affordable electric vehicle…[The result] is the SRK, a two-seat, three-wheeled electric vehicle that looks like the spawn of a golf cart and an ATV. The company plans to begin selling it in late 2016 or early 2017. It’s officially classed as a motorcycle…[but it] has a protective shell, and, for an additional fee, it can be upgraded to a fully enclosed model. The prototype’s 12 kilowatt lithium ion battery has a range of about 70 miles, and can hit speeds of at least 85 miles per hour. And it can hit them fast: it can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in only 7.5 seconds. It’s only 105 inches long, which means you can park it like a motorcycle…[The battery and drivetrain are at the bottom of the vehicle [to insure safety and for comfort and efficiency] they replaced the steering wheel with handlebars…[Its $12,000 price] may be too expensive…[but research suggests it] is the sweet spot in the US…” click here for more
