Myers Motors introduces the NMG2


Let’s just put it out there: the Myers Motors NMG2 has taken the words ‘quirky’ and ’efficient’ to all-time levels.

We do have to give brownie points to Myers for their creativity and ingenuity. The two-seat, three-wheel model NMG2 integrates elements from cars and motorcycles thanks to those headlights, which, if you noticed, comes in threes: Two on either side and one on the center. Yes, the center.

Not only that, the car’s dimensions are such that the front resembles – apart from the center-mounted headlights, of course – a standard car while the back looks more like a performance bike.

In any case, Myers seems to have tremendous faith in their product, especially as far as eco-friendly efficiency is concerned; something all of us can agree with.

The vehicle runs on lithium-ion batteries and has a top speed of 75 mph with a 60-mile range. Myers has also hinted that a 100-mile model will eventually be offered for customers down the road. For now, the NMG2 is slated to hit production by the tail-end of 2010 and customers who are interested in buying one of these cars can do so for a little under $30,000.

As far as I remember, I saw this NMG2 in the movie entitled Wall-e. It is all about futures too. I wonder where the designer got the idea on making this one.

Hah! This one looks weird because the headlights is located at the center. I’ve been thinking how did this one will become one of the cost efficient cars? I’d better ride with my mountain bike.

And maybe that’s the saddest part of electric car, its reliability is always been questioned. Wth the growing demand on this type, I guess this is definitely not the best option you could see in the market!

As I said before electric cars are good since it deliver good fuel economy and its the best solution for fuel crisis. However, I still have a doubt on the reliability of this technology. And I do believe that some of the car manufacturer that uses this option, activated the diesel engine to support the car whenever it loses it power.

@suzet001 , I can’t see where is the promising side on this car. Well, I don’t believe on the concept of electric cars so definitely i have a doubt about the reliability on this car.

It look so refreshing. It so cute! haha. The original NMG uses a 156 volt DC motor, can achieve a top speed of 75 mph with a range of 30 miles. It uses
thirteen 12-volt lead acid batteries in series, rated at 156V that recharge in 6 to 8 hours with 110 volt outlet.

What a promising release from Myers. I really admired their perseverance in creating something that is first rated. High Five!

Two thumbs up for Myers Motors. Congratulations! This is really extreme and can be one of the first rated cars globally!

Striking color! I love it. I agree, I also don’t like its back hood. Looks like wide umbrella or something.

75 mph is not bad but for a price tag of less than 30 grand? I don’t think so. Plus, I don’t think that it is really safe for 3 wheeled cars to be running in highways and roads. How stable is it when it reach 60 or 70? how safe could it be since a little bump on the rear side could get it spinning and something cause it only has one wheel.
