News from the Bismarck Tribune (Bismarck, North Dakota, US)

FARGO - An electric motorcar that was first manufactured here nearly a decade ago is growing up.

Global Electric Motorcars on Thursday unveiled its new six-passenger model, known as the e6. The zero emission car is street legal and designed primarily for master planned communities, resorts, hotels, military bases and industrial campuses.

"We're anxious to get these vehicles to our customers who have ordered them sight-unseen," said Rick Kasper, Global Electric president and Chief Operating Officer.

The car has been in the works for two years. It went into production last week and should be available for distribution next week, Kasper said.

The car has a base price of about $12,000. It's available with several options, including an extended battery pack that allows it to be driven up to 40 miles without recharging.
