Commuter Car Tango
Car Tango is an electric car that
is both the environmentalist's dream and the sports car enthusiast's
dream. While the Tango may appear to be an odd-looking 2-seat gas-sipper
that only a treehugger could love, the fact is that this car is
fast, very fast.
Car Tango can accelerate from 0 - 60 mph in about 4 seconds. It
can also run the ¼ mile in 12 seconds, reaching speeds
of 120 mph. This Tango not only dances, it can run!
Commuter Car Tango may appear to be top-heavy, making it prone
to rollovers, this appearance is deceiving. The Tango actually
is very stable due to all of the lead-acid batteries stored on
the floorboard of the vehicle that give juice to the car.
other electric cars, which take 6 - 8 hours to recharge, the Tango's
batteries can recharge to 80-percent in just 10 minutes by using
a 200-amp off board charger. A full recharge can take 3 hours with
this same charger or by using a 110 outlet, the Commuter Car Tango
can easily recharge overnight in the convenience of one's own garage.
The Tango also has an 80-mile range, which far exceeds the average
urban commuter's travel distance of 20 miles per day.
the somewhat odd appearance of the Tango, it makes one wonder whether
driving this car would be safe. Once again, appearances are deceiving
as the Commuter Car Tango has a low center of gravity, uses 4-point
passenger harnesses and contains a racecar-style roll cage that
has the equivalent to a 5-star NHTSA rating and meets or exceeds
SCCA and NHRA regulations.
the Commuter Car Tango so appealing, though, it is small profile
and excellent maneuverability. The car is only 8 ½ feet long
and 39-inches in width, which means that it can park in most motorcycle
parking spaces or even sideway to the curb, where needed. In fact,
the Tango competes more directly with motorcycles than it does with
other automobiles since it can maneuver in an out of traffic like
a motorcycle and only takes up half a lane of space.
Unlike a motorcycle,
however, the Commuter Car Tango is safer to drive, self-contained
from the elements and has a decent amount of storage space for
the size of the vehicle. They say that it takes two to tango,
but this Tango seats two, will get you there in a hurry and will
do so in an environmentally friendly, zero emissions manner. As
an electric car, the Tango is suprisingly shockingly cool!
