Cenntro Automotive Corporation's modular compact electric utility vehicle is now available in the U.S. market through Tropos Technologies. The battery-electric Cenntro METRO is a flexible modular vehicle suited for maintenance crew transportation, parking enforcement, local delivery, and transport on university campuses or within communities.
The crash-tested and street-legal 10 kW low-speed vehicle can achieve optional ranges of up to 120 miles, top speed of up to 50 mph (per local laws), an estimated MPGe of 145, up to 4.3 M/Kwh, on-road payload capacity of up to 1,200 lbs. (1500 lbs. off-road), and a turning radius of 150 inches (12.5 feet).
The METRO is available in three basic configuations: a pickup bed, a cargo box, and tradesman package, all of which can be modified to suit the operator's needs before or after purchase. Customers can choose from several different configurations which include the open truck bed with fold down sides, hydraulic dump bed, utility bed with ladder/lumber rack, and van box with rear and side doors.
The integrated powertrain, Cenntro Power, improves performance, weight balance, and handling. Cenntro's proprietary design achieves high efficiency with low production costs, at a price that is best in its class. It is also simply designed to have no maintenance, minimal moving parts, and a long life.
