There's been a lot of press lately about EV launches and pricing strategies of big auto companies, like Nissan with their LEAF. But out of the shadows, practically-unknown Envision Motor Company has emerged and announced that they will be launching not one, but three EVs this summer, all with a price tag under $30,000, once the $7,500 federal tax credit is applied.
The all-electric vehicles will include a seven-passenger wagon, a utility van and a small pickup truck. All models will be sold at a selection of dealerships across America.
The vehicles will be outfitted with 24kWh sodium nickel chloride batteries and AC motors. The company states they'll have a max speed of 75 mph and a 200-mile range. They have onboard chargers and can juice up at home on a 110V circuit in six to eight hours. The vehicles have already passed crash testing.
The EVs will make their debut on a test-drive tour around the country that starts in May.
