RESULTS OF BASELINE TESTS OF THE EVA METRO SEDAN, CITI-CAR, JET INDUSTRIES ELECTRA-VAN, CDA TOWN CAR, AND OTIS P-500 VAN

Five electric vehicles were tested at vehicle test tracks using the SAE. The tests provide range data at steady speeds and for several driving cycles. Most tests were conducted with lead-acid traction batteries. The Otis Van and the Copper Electric Town Car were also tested with lead-acid and nickel-zinc batteries. The tests showed a range increase of from 82 to 101 percent depending on vehicle, speed, and test cycle.
