The Witness - Wheels - - ELECTRIC -

With a price of $11 900 (R178 000) Arci­moto from Ore­gon in the U.S. says its SRK “is the daily elec­tric ve­hi­cle for the rest of us”. The 12 kW mo­tor pro­pels the roll case on wheels from 0 to 100 km/h in un­der nine sec­onds, while rid­ers have the se­cu­rity of rac­ing har­nesses, im­pact crum­ple zones front and rear as well as side cov­ers that at­tached in a few min­utes to pro­tect against rain and cold. The base model range of 70 miles (112 km) is plenty for most ur­ban ar­eas, but you’ll also be able to choose a 130 mile ex­tended range op­tion for those longer com­mutes. And the bat­tery recharges in just a few hours. Arci­moto, which was founded in 2007 in Ore­gon to build prod­ucts that catal­yse the shift to a sus­tain­able transportation sys­tems, is tak­ing or­ders for the SRK now at $100 de­posit.
