Such great news from Polaris Autos! I heard that they are about to have an elevtric vehicle like this one...

news from:

New Polaris Breeze Electric Vehicle Hits the Streets

Since electric vehicles represent, quite clearly, the future of transportation solutions as we know them, more and more companies are getting involved in this particular field, coming up with all sorts of models designed for specific market segments. And one of the latest arrivals is the Breeze from Polaris, a moving contraption that looks just like a golf cart at a first sight, but is a lot more.

According to Polaris, this low emission vehicle represents the company’s initial product entry into the electric vehicle market and has been designed for multiple consumer uses such as golfing, comfortably transporting up to four passengers, or easily carrying light cargo loads. The vehicle is targeted at consumers living in master-planned communities, so you're not likely to take this baby for a ride on the interstate.

With its entirely electric operating system, the Polaris Breeze is a lower emission vehicle than comparable gas-powered offerings and is a fuel-saving alternative to automobiles for consumers making numerous short trips within their community. The new Polaris Neighborhood Vehicle is fun to ride, and is an economically and environmentally responsible means of transportation, Polaris' reps add.

“Innovation has always been a driving force behind the success of Polaris, and our new low emission Polaris Breeze is a perfect example of that ongoing tradition,” said Scott Wine, CEO, Polaris Industries. “Our ability to leverage Polaris’ rich history of designing and manufacturing industry leading products, combined with the creativity of our designers and engineers, is a hallmark of our company and a major component for our success. This vehicle is the latest innovation from Polaris and the first of what we expect will be a series of successful ventures into the on-road vehicle category over the coming years.”

Although no pricing details have been provided just yet, Polaris does inform us that its Breeze vehicle will be available in limited quantities for test ride and purchase at Polaris Neighborhood Vehicle dealerships in select markets starting with September 2009.

They advertise no exhaust emissions but yet many will put more charge on coal-fired electrical plants, both in their manufacture and then in their charging-up of their battery packs. I still welcome the all-electric powertrain idea and look to buy one as soon as one suits me fancy.

Perhaps a BYD e6 with it's 0-60 time of 8 seconds, it's curb weight of 4,400 lbs. and it's top speed of 99 mph. And it's range of 249 miles. That's the thing I like about the BYD e6 5-seater the most, it's 249 mile range.

I'd like to know what BYD will charge Americans for their new e6. I'm thinking around $29,995 before the B.O. "green" car rebate for American purchasers of $7,500 dollars. The car would be worth it in this scenario, IMHO.
