The convenient, fun and environmentally sound transportation alternative can be a great option for neighborhood road travel, running errands and for those who lead an on-the-go lifestyle.
The 2Five meets or exceeds standards mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as well as additional standards of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for low-speed vehicles, or LSVs. LSVs must have a top speed of no more than 25 mph and be equipped with certain additional features including a windshield, seat belts, mirrors and headlights and taillights.
The vehicles are issued a vehicle identification number, like any automobile, and can be titled and operated by licensed drivers on most public roads with speed limits of 35 mph or less.
The car includes four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes for braking and vehicle control. The vehicle's dash includes a digital speedometer and odometer, cup holders, a locking glove box and an AC outlet for recharging mobile devices.
In addition, a "rabbit/turtle" switch on the dash conveniently limits the 2Five's speed to 14 mph when conditions require lower speeds, or to prevent turf damage in instances when the 2Five is being used as a golf vehicle.
Eco-friendly features include a 48-volt electric powertrain that uses AC current, which lowers vehicle noise, eliminates hazardous fuel and oil and uses less energy. Regenerative braking recharges the batteries whenever the vehicle's brakes are applied. An on-board solid-state battery charger makes recharging as convenient as plugging into a household power outlet. The foam seating is made of 100 percent recycled material.
