AFVI Show: All about cars with Dynasty, Zap. ZENN and Phoenix


Dynasty, GEM, Zap. Phoenix.

Certain readers in our will see this list and What about Tesla? And I’m not sure why those two companies were not part of the vehicle panel at AFVI on but they weren’t.

Miles had a presence at the show (Tesla

Whatever the case, representatives those five electric car gave nice State of the EV presentations and if there was one overwhelming from the panel it was Let’s Together (which, as I mentioned might as well be the unofficial of AFVI right now).

The representation of this idea from Gary Starr, and co-founder of Zap! Starr about The Zap! Challenge branding, there) which to sell 100,000 EVs any EVs, not Zap!’s each year by

Sales of a hundred thousand a would make up less one percent of the new vehicle sales in the US but about a billion tons of CO2 year. The other part of the challenge is to plant a million by 2010. Zap plants 200 trees in a world country for each car it Starr said a teacher told him that there are two you can do to help the environment and the economy: an electric car and plant a tree.

The Challenge is an obvious embodiment of advice from years

there’s much more much?) after the jump

didn’t mention the Lotus X, the Zap! booth girls wearing Lotus X shirts. month, Zap! will add an scooter to its line-up of electric (ATVs, cars, underwater devices, the Zappy, etc.). some of Starr’s presentation a here he talks about the of all things (MP3 ).

The Old Guard on the panel, GEM, was by Rick Kasper, President and Jasper gave a brief of GEM’s history, a history stretches back to 1992. are about 33,000 GEM vehicles in the US and 1,000 in Europe and Asia, and GEM this number by about vehicles a year. GEM has a distinctive EV and you can see it here. GEM’s 30-mile NEVs (or 40 miles with the battery option) take 8 hours to recharge, or can get 80 percent in 45 minutes with new off-board charger.

GEM offers a heap of and has (minute 33ish) 150 dealers the country, mostly at Dodge, and Jeep dealerships.

GEMs have a 12-month limited (but it is extendable) and are used at all of campuses, parks and planned GEM cars can help be used to EPAct requirements. GEM contribution to the EV market is an affordability page at to compare operating costs of a GEM ICE and other cars.

It’d be nice to either a page like this on the of all EV makers or a generic comparison that could be applied to any EV on the

Bryon Bliss, VP of sales and of Phoenix said that the Big Six are no providing electric vehicle so Phoenix and the others on the panel are up with EVs available today (or anyway, like later year, in some cases). The SUT, with its 95 mph top speed, range and a 250,000-mile battery for 3-year/36,000 miles (even Phoenix calls them batteries), dominates the offerings by the on the market. It also has the most price: $45,000 compared to +/- $3,000 for a GEM.

Bliss a good rundown on why Phoenix is and you can listen to his reasons here ). Bliss also said is thinking about introducing 4WD and range (more batteries) in the future. He didn’t have an to a member of the audience who asked if you put a snowplow on the SUT.

One company we don’t cover on AutoblogGreen is Dynasty Electric Car owned by Commercial Body. no real reason why we haven’t in the so let’s get started. Dynasty five models of the it vehicle, an NEV on a 2×4 aluminum chassis, fiberglass exterior with bumpers, a 5.5 DC motor, six 12 volt 13-inch wheels, and a variety of regen braking, AC drive, duty suspension, and upgraded packs (including high charging options).

Bill VP of sales of ZENN, has a long history with electric and he used to sell Zap! He has also consulted with Lee as well as many EV companies. said he feels that is the company that’s doing it (not that other are doing it wrong, mind We’re all working together, His DIY tip for people is to realize that incentives for electric vehicles do not apply to NEVs.

But, because there are 400 Kyoto-committed mayors in America, attendees (and AutoblogGreen could and should start with them to encourage NEV wherever it’s feasible. one way to sell 100,000 a year. mentioned, but didn’t talk any details about, the EESTOR.

The vehicle is based on Beneteau Microcar and has six 12-volt DEKA Gel for a 35-mile range. Williams the company is now offering a new fast-charge and the somewhat big news he announced is ZENN is now accepting orders for drive options (this the interest of a woman from ZENN is also looking at speed vehicle options, but said this will be joint venture or doing using ZENN’s battery because, hey, there are cars out there already.

I particularly liked Williams’s during the QA session on how he and other NEV have to explain their to the public. If you haven’t clicked on any of the MP3s in this post, you really give him a listen ). Good stuff.
