    The 3 wheeler is rated at 40mph, and the only reason the 4 wheel one is rated at 25, is because of our stupid laws. Its also one of the reasons why China is way ahead when it come to electric vehicles.

    I'm seriously considering getting the three wheeler for doing local appliance repair. But I would change the AGM batteries to Lithiums, and increase the range to 100.

    why not just convert your car to electric power? I was watching a show where they did a 6? Camaro for Anthony Kiedis from the Chilli Peppers, and man that thing was sweet, and hauled @$$

    full time service vehicle part time ice cream trucks. Not a bad idea for downturns. And free maintenance of your own ice cream freezer not a bad idea at all!!!

    with a 1600lb payload, I hope you guys do really light service...

    My tools must come close to 25% of the total hauling potential.
    Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.

    i would be thankful just to get shelving in my van, but to be able to play the ice cream truck music and sell ice cream while i'm working would be even better!

    That's great, but the last 7.3 that was put in a van was in 2003 (yes I have one). What are you going to get when your van needs to be replaced?
