Title: Baseline and verification tests of the Unique Mobility, Inc. Electrek 2+2. Final test report 8 Aug 80-29 May 81

Abstract

The Electrek 2+2 by Unique Mobility, Inc. is a custom-designed vehicle with a molded fiberglass and polycarbonate body. It was tested by the U.S. Army Mobility Equipment Research and Development Command (MERADCOM) at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) project to characterize the state-of-the-art of electric vehicles. The vehicle is powered by 16 6-volt lead-acid batteries through a transistorized controller to a 32-hp modified shunt wound electric motor. It has 4-speed manual transmission and disc brakes in front with drum in the rear and is equipped with regenerative deceleration.
