The Kurrent is a neighborhood electric vehicle.
Its power comes from 4.1 kW electrical motor and powered by four 12 volt lead–gel sealed batteries (total 48 volts). It also has a battery to power optional equipment. Sadly, this company went out of business.
Concept and range
The Kurrent was designed in Italy and is built in Michigan, USA. According to the manufacturer, a fully charged Kurrent can travel up to 40 miles before needing a recharge. A Kurrent is not a hybrid vehicle, so it needs to be plugged into a 120 volt outlet; when its batteries are fully drained, a complete recharge takes 8 hours. This company ceased operating in 2008.
