Lead acid city car
A retailer in the Boston area is marketing this Miles Electric utility truck as a passenger vehicle that runs entirely off lead acid batteries. The range is limited to 80 miles or so and its top speed is only 25 miles per hour. Newer battery technologies promise better range and top speed but will be more expensive, said Paul Elwood of Electric City Cars. This car costs $20,000, but Elwood says tax incentives bring the cost down to $10,000.
