I’m not one of those people who likes to complain just for the sake of complaining. I’m much more solution oriented than that. So, after railing on the crazy three-wheeled Sidam Xnovo, I feel compelled to follow it up with my opinion of a better choice. And I choose the Vectrix ZEV.
In fact, if all goes according to plan, it will be my next vehicle. Why waste time going to the gas station when you can just plug in this baby and go? Called “the world’s first high-performance electric motorcycle with performance and style” and boasting a clean, efficient, electric motor, this speedy city machine has no noise or pollution and you’ll never need to change the oil.
Best of all, it almost looks like a motorcycle, not a wimpy scooter or a crazy three-wheeled thing.
With superior handling and a top speed of 62 mph, you can even take it on the highway. Although I probably wouldn’t. (How could I enjoy my zero-emissions vehicle if I’m inhaling the fumes of all the non-ZEs?)
And while I draw the line at calling it a “luxury vehicle” (as Vectrix does), it is affordable at an SRP of 11 grand.
And I like the name: Vectrix. If you say it just right, it sounds sexy. Dirty, even.
