Tropos Motors has released a new battery pack for electric compact utility vehicles (eCUV) and claims it holds three times more range than power packs of competitors. The ABLE XR comes with a 26 kWh battery good for about 250 km. Launch is set in Q4/2018.
Tropos Motors not only wanted to beat competitors but also expanded its own offering. The ABLE XR offers four times more range compared to standard ABLE configurations. Carrying their largest battery pack, it means the eCUV can travel up to 72 kph for up to 250 km. The small and slow moving electric vehicle may tow a max of 3,000 pounds.
Like the standard ABLE eCUVs, the ABLE XR has a very short turning radius, the ability to swap bed packages quickly, and a load sensing brake proportioning system, hill-hold, reinforced doors, full length steel chassis, and a driver side airbag.
The Tropos ABLE XR is slated for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2018.
