LAS VEGAS, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neil Roth, President of Xtreme Green Products, Inc., announced today that Xtreme Green has secured the rights to a provisional patent for electric hybrid versions of their ATV, UTV and other types of specialty light on/off road vehicles.
"We view this as a tremendous opportunity to expand into different markets and serve a wider range of clientele. Imagine limitless range, rapid charging, in minutes and the ability to continue your journey without stopping for 4+, to charge," said Roth. "The vehicles will have the capability of using propane, gas or diesel fuel.
Primarily, this alleviates the number one fear users of electric vehicles have, which is that they will run "out of energy." Xtreme Green expects to have these vehicles available for purchase by the last quarter of 2012.
The patent relates to electric hybrid light vehicles, such as ATVs or UTVs that are configured to run solely using electric motors with the capability of rapid charging during use when the batteries get low. This patent includes a "Vehicle Management System." This system powers the vehicle on/off, protects the batteries, balances the charge, provides diagnostic information, and controls the drive system. Additionally, it relates to a rapid charging system in the 44 -144V range for lithium battery systems and can be used to provide 110V AC current in the field.
"Our specialty electric powered vehicles are comparable to gas/diesel fuel operated ATV and UTV's. This new provisional patent allows us to offer an exclusive on electric hybrid vehicles that will dramatically increase our range," said Roth.
