PostSubject: Another promising electric ATV option   Thu Mar 27, 2008 10:16 pm

By Russ Hollmann

I was recently introduced to an Italian company manufacturing a line of electric-powered quads, which are now available in the United States. Global Electric Motorcars, which made the first EU street-legal electric ATV (which makes the mpg argument irrelevant btw) now has an exclusive US distributor for several of its machines - Electric Vehicles Unlimited, LLC. The company is based in Fargo, North Dakota and will also be the distributor for Canada, Mexico and South America.

They are offering three ATV models:

Geo Country Quad


Dimensions: L77 in x W44 in x H45 in
Weight: 549 lbs
Wheel base: 49 in
Max. load weight: 231 lbs
Motor: 4kw/2800, continuous current
Battery: 6 x 12V, 74Ah NorthStar
Charger: 110V-220V Zivian On-board
Total charge time: approx. 9 hrs
Top speed: 25 mph
Top range: street, 31 mi; off-road, 25 mi
Gear: automatic
Transmission: rear w/ locked differential, auto gear box plus reverse

Geo Light Quad


Dimensions: L53 in x W33 in x H39 in
Weight: 265 lbs
Motor: DC series
Motor power: 600 W
Battery: 48V, 24 Ah, maintenance-free
Charger: AC 220V AC 110V
Total charging time: Approx. 8 hrs.
Top speed: Approx. 19 mph
Top range: Approx. 19 mi

Geo Mini Quad


Dimensions: L47 in x W27 in x H28 in
Weight: 93 lbs
Motor: DC series
Motor power: 450 W
Battery: 3 x 12V, 12 Ah, maintenance-free
Charger: AC 220V AC 110V
Total charging time: Approx. 6 hrs
Top speed: Approx. 11 mph
Top range: Approx. 12 mi

To give you an idea of the sizes, the Geo Country is comparable to a mid-size utility ATV (Honda Rancher or Kawasaki Prairie) while the Geo Light Quad is slightly smaller than a traditional 90cc mini ATV. The Geo Mini is even smaller than a gas powered 50cc and also significantly lighter.

While the ATV platforms themselves are not quite to the level BAREFOOT MOTORS is working on with the Model One electric ATV, the battery technology and motor appear to be solid. Charging the Geo Quads is very simple with an on-board electric charger and cable that can be connected to any common electric home-socket AC110V/220V. The claimed electricity usage during the charging is comparable to an electric shaver.
