The TRIAC 2.0, a three-wheeled electric car powered by a lithium battery and plugging it into a wall socket overnight, is no more. Green Vehicles have closed their doors after failing to receive a grant for $2.7 Million, or attract investors. The TRIAC sold for about $25,000 (increased from $20,000 due to high demand), will travel at 80 mph, with a 100 mile range and uses a 144v lithium-ion battery pack. See the video below.
The TRIAC and the MOOSE (an all-electric minivan), also made by Green Vehicles were made in Salinas, California. I haven’t found how many TRIACs or MOOSEs rolled off the assembly line, but in another video, the CEO Mike Ryan said he had a waiting list and the first cars went out November 2010. If you own a TRIAC, what just happened to your warranty? Source: KSBW.com
