BASELINE TESTS OF THE SEBRING CITI-VAN ELECTRIC DELIVERY TRUCK

The Citi-Van Model 611N0003, an electric two-passenger multipurpose van, was tested at the US Army Aberdeen Proving Ground test facilities in Aberdeen, Maryland, as part of a Department of Energy (DOE) project to characterize the state-of-the-art of electric vehicles. The Citi-Van is manufactured in Sebring, Florida, by Sebring Vanguard, Inc. It is powered by eight 6-volt batteries that are connected to the motor through a contactor control actuated by a foot pedal to control motor speed. The 6-horsepower motor drives the rear wheels through a direct drive to the differential. No regenerative braking was provided. (Author)
