Phoenix Motorcars: Launch of the Electric SUT


Chris Paine was the first to step behind the wheel of the new Phoenix Sport Utility Truck (SUT) at the Peterson Automotive Museum in LA last week. The celebrity roll call featured our good buddies Ed Begely Jr., and even Daryl Hannah was there filming her vlog. We felt right at home stepping behind the wheel of the only 5 passenger, all-electric, freeway-speed, SUT in the nation. And guess what? It was an exciting ride. With crisp acceleration, and full features, this is the real deal when it comes to electric vehicles. I wouldn't hesitate taking this for a spin on LA's mean streets, plus I would get to use the HOV lane-in a truck! The price (I heard ~65K) is a little steep to be a breakaway revolution... but it is at least an uprising in automotive technology that won't be killed anytime soon. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a used phoenix, but I get the feeling that these babies will be in high demand for a long time to come. ::Phoenix Motorcars
