No gas, no oil, Made in the USA, fun to drive and a head turner!
Benefits listed on the Myers Motors Website:
The Myers Motors No more Gas (NmG) personal electric vehicle helps you do all those things you always wanted to do, but were never given the chance to do, until now! The NmG gives you the ability to:
Just say NO:
To sending your money to support non-democratic regimes who fund activities aimed at undermining the American freedoms we enjoy,
Dump the pump before the pump dumps you:
Full-page ads placed by Chevron in major magazines in 2006 boldly proclaimed that “The world consumes two barrels of oil for every barrel discovered” and “It took us 125 years to use the first trillion barrels of oil. We’ll use the next trillion in 30.” Oil production in the US and in many other oil producing countries has peaked. Oil use has continued to grow. Isn’t now the time to dump the pump … and develop a better alternative … before the pump runs dry and dumps you?
Save money on fuel:
A popular gas-electric hybrid averages around 50 miles to the gallon. At $2.50 per gallon, that comes to $0.05 per mile of fuel costs. The NmG all-electric vehicle, by comparison, costs somewhere between $0.01 and $0.02 in fuel costs, per mile.
The NmG allows you to save time by
• Driving in the HOV/car pool lanes,
• Using motorcycle parking and/or using spots too small for cars to park in,
• Having first-on and first-off ferry privileges,
Conveniently use existing resources:
110 volt outlets are everywhere; no new infrastructure is needed to be able to plug into the future, today.
America’s 5% of the world’s population uses 25% of the world’s energy. Partial responsibility for this is because the American government subsidizes the cost of gasoline at the pump, thus costing each individual user of gasoline less than it actually costs society to have that gasoline available.
For example, the true cost of gasoline that is not fully included in the per gallon price at the pump includes:
• Extra tax incentives and subsidies other businesses don’t receive,
• Costs related to military protection of our oil supplies,
• Charges for cleaning up environmental problems after spills,
• Higher prices triggered by damage to agriculture, and
• Payment for health problems caused by our use of oil.
Estimates have placed the true cost of gasoline around $10 per gallon.
Reduce your impact on global warming:
Americans travel over 7 billion miles daily and burn through nearly 420 million gallons of gasoline, spewing approximately 10.5 billion pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air that we breathe. Several other countries are beginning to catch up with those figures. Many scientists believe this additional CO2 contributes to climate change. They believe this may be the reason we have seen the temperature extremes, droughts, unusually severe rains, increasingly fierce storms, and melting glaciers of the last few years. Experts warn that we need to stop dumping extra carbon into the air before it’s too late to stop the damage.
Who knows the DUO maybe the next car I have wrapped?
