Cool Blue takes you where you want to go in quiet style.

It is powered by a 144V D&D 13 hp DC motor that is completely silent in operation. This motor matches the original gas engine in performance without the environmental consequences. Its lead acid gel batteries go about 50 miles on a charge, require no maintenance, and emit no gases during recharge. The battery pack is heated so that performance and range are not degraded in cold weather.
