Electric Vehicle As Pace Car


Green Star Products, Inc. and Global Green Cars, Inc. introduced their G-3 plug-in electric pickup truck by working as the lead pace car at Rocky Mountain Raceway on August 29th, 2009 in West Valley City, Utah.

Starting all the heats and the main event races at speeds of about 50 mph, the G-3 handled the sharp corners of the quarter-mile track and accelerated strongly over a three-hour period without recharging.

The truck has a working payload of 450 kg, can comfortably seat two people, and has a top speed of over 135 km/h. The average driver should obtain a range of 160 km between charges, and spend about $1 dollar to fully recharge the advanced nickel-based battery.
