Lithium Batteries Coming Next Year for Low-Speed Vehicle Line
Florida-based Cruise Car continues to promote its line of robust low-speed electric vehicles for professional use, recently spreading the word about an ambulance plat for use on commercial and university campuses, military bases, city centers and airports.
Cruise Car will introduce a range-extending lithium battery option next year, says VP Nathan Kalin.
Cruise Car LEVs have 9-horsepower motors with 450-amp controllers and a heavy duty front end suspension for strength and durability with fluid steering. The firm offers a 72-volt system.
Weight-Saving Aluminum Frame and Wheels
“Each vehicle is built on an aluminum frame which is 25% thicker than any other chassis on the market,” Kalin told F&F. “Each frame is extruded and cut to the exact length of the vehicle,” he says. “We never cut, stretch and weld our frames.”
Cruise Car LEVs also feature aluminum wheel rims, he says, as compared with standard steel/plastic hub caps wheel elsewhere on the market.
The company offers solar electric charge boost as an option, as well as an optional five year, bumper-to-bumper warranty.
