Say goodbye to petrol station! You will only need to plug in your car to electricity and charge it to go further. It cost just a dollar for you to run 75-100 miles.

Cheaper and low maintenance

The design of an electric car is simpler than gasoline-powered car. It has only got one motor powered by electric. No engine oil, oil filter, spark plugs, or timing belt maintenance.

No overheat

Most of the electric car has got no radiator so no overheat problem. No maintenance or coolant needed!

Electric powered go longer lifetime

Do you know that an electric car can last for at least millions of miles? Most of the European cars engine today is measured in 100,000 – 200,000 miles, same goes for American cars, best you can go for 300,000 – 400,000 miles for a real good Japanese car like Toyota or Honda. If you drive an electric car for 50 miles a day, you can at least use it for 100 years!

More safety

Powered by electric, no engine combustion, no gasoline, safer to drive! The top speed will not go over 100 mph, so daddy no worries.
