Hy Tric Motors is another USA company transforming Chinese cars into low-speed electric vehicles.

We got a tip recently about Hy Tric Motors, a company based in Ventura, California that offers electric vehicles and electric retro fit kits. The company seems to focus mostly on low-speed electric vehicles, but the Hy Tric Electro Cycle seen above (UPDATE: actually the XR3, see update after the jump) has a top speed of 125 mph It costs $23,999, but there are virtually no other details available. In fact, the entire website is not set up to provide a whole lot of information about the cars. We can see pictures of the 2009 AFS Hy Tric 4 Seater (the green vehicle in the gallery below) that starts at $10,900 and the 2009 AFS Hy Tric EVCapus, a work truck for $13,900, but not much more about them.

The only car that Hy Tric offers any real details on is the 2009 AFS Hy Tric Electro XRb-series, an EV that costs $9,999 and can go 60-90 miles on a full charge of its lead acid batteries (eight 12V/120AH packs). A 4 kW motor offers a top speed of 37 mph (can be limited to 25 mph to fall into the NEV category). Hy Tric also offers a series of conversion kits ranging from $2,500 (48 volt kit) to $5,000 (144 volts) to add onto your own vehicle.

The green car looks like Hafei's Pininfarina-designed Lubao with its distinctive cowl lights. But I have never seen the red one before.

By the Hytric Motors site I also see they are offering what looks like a electric conversion of the Zotye 2008.
These Smart lookalikes are becoming a dime a dozen in China and so it's hard to identify the maker.
Don't the Dongfeng Yu'an minivans and pickups have a two piece grille, ala BMW, rather than a one piece? There are so many makers of these Suzuki knock offs that I can't keep track.
