T3 Motion, Inc. (OTC BB: TMMM), a leader in clean-technology electric vehicles announced the completion and delivery of its prototype electric consumer vehicleâ€”the R3.Â The R3 is the first vehicle in the T3 product line to be developed specifically for the consumer market and was unveiled in June 2010. The prototype was completed last week and is on display at the T3 Motion headquarters in Costa Mesa, CA.
â€œThe completion of our R3 prototype culminates the years of product and market research, system design and management along with revolutionary design concepts,â€ said Ki Nam, T3 Motion CEO. â€œFrom conception to completion, this clean-technology product embodies a unique and groundbreaking vanguard for our launch into the consumer arena. By adding this vehicle to our product line, we continue our mission to deliver powerful, cost-effective, clean-energy products to the marketplace.â€
Previously known as the GT3, the R3 features a proprietary rear-wheel design with a patent-pending, single, wide-stance wheel with two tires. The revolutionary two-tire design improves traction, stability, and handling, while the low rolling resistance and rounded profile of the rear tires increase energy efficiency.
The vehicleâ€™s AC induction motor is powered by lithium-polymer battery technology and has a range of 80-100 miles per charge. The R3 incorporates the AV Samsung Galaxy into the sleek dashboard design.Â Due to its unique three-wheeled design, the R3 is classified as a motorcycle and will be priced between $25,000 and $35,000.
With its aerodynamic styling and proven T3 Motion intelligent power management battery system, the two-passenger R3 combines driving pleasure and environmental responsibility into a very stylish package with a top speed of 70 mph.
