T3 Series Three-wheeled Electric Stand-up Vehicle Featured in the Sunday Edition of The New York Times Metro Section The New York Times Metro Section Highlights Use of T3 Motion Clean Energy ESV By N.Y.P.D. in Four New York Subway Stations for Increased Visibility, Community Relations and Command Presence
COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Times Metro Section featured T3 Motion, Inc. in the Sunday, October 24, 2010 edition. The New York Times' City Critic section writer, Ms. Ariel Kaminer, took a ride on the iconic T3 Series electric vehicle used by the New York Police Department (N.Y.P.D.) to patrol four subway stations; Times Square, the Post Authority, Grand Central Station and Coney Island.
Ms. Kaminer's creative writing style complements and highlights the clean energy, user-friendly T3 Series as "a new tool for community policing which consumes far less energy than a car and far fewer oats than a horse." She also told an interesting tale of her adventure in learning how to operate and navigate the iconic T3 Series ESV near Times Square. "Within a few minutes, I had the thing under control and I was zipping around the block with a huge grin on my face, doing zero-turn radius doughnuts to impress passers-by," states Kaminer in the article.
“We are incredibly honored to work with N.Y.P.D. and their revolutionary commitment to clean energy and public safety. Being the world’s largest police force, N.Y.P.D. has a vast range of patrol requirements. The recent deployment of our T3 Series ESV in New York subways will enhance N.Y.P.D. patrols, increase their command presence, and build their public relationship to encourage interaction with the public. With a nine-inch elevated platform, an officer on a T3 Series ESV has a prominent line of sight. The iconic look of the T3 generates a command presence in crowds. Our relationship with the N.Y.P.D. is key to our pursuit of becoming the industry's global leader in the market for cost effective zero-gas emissions electric patrol vehicles,” said Ki Nam, CEO, T3 Motion, Inc.
