According to both Zoomilife and the manufacturer, the vehicle price tag is set at $7,999.
So far, not bad.
Xtreme Green estimates that the X Rider's operational cost is around $0.003 per mile.
Getting even better.
Now enter President Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Under the stimulus package, the X Rider qualifies for an enormous $3,334 plug-in electric vehicle tax credit. That's a tax credit, not a deduction.
This just turned into a steal.
A few specs:
- Propulsion: 60 Amp Hour, 72 Volt Lithium Ion (LFP) Battery Propulsion System (6kWh battery pack)
- Vehicle range: over 100 miles
- Top Speed: 65 mph
- Battery recharge time: 2-3 hours
