If you’ve been reading Gas 2.0 for awhile now, you probably know I am a big Jeep fan. I like my Wrangler for its versatility and reliability. It is also a great conversation starter, because it seems like every other vehicle I see is a Wrangler (what else might you expect from a farm town). My Wrangler gets terrible gas mileage though, and I have secretly longed for a diesel engine or even an electric motor.
The Ecos Fun! is not a Wrangler. Nor does it appear very versatile, seeming more like a glorified golf kart. But Ecos claims the Fun! has a 100 mile range and a top speed of 70 mph, all starting at $24,995 — very reasonable if you ask me. And it sorta looks like a Jeep.
Ecos also just started selling their Harbringer sports car. This lightweight sports car reminiscent of a Lamborghini offers a 150 mile range, 117 mph top speed, and a 0-60 time of under six seconds. Sounds like a competitor for the Tesla! The Harbringer starts at $90,000, a lot of money but still less than Tesla’s Roadster.
