Hello Randy
I have a couple left of the factory Chevrolet S-10 EV with NiMH batteries.  
Depending on the vehicle they range from 18,000 to 24,000. They are good for 
two  people or in a pinch  three close friends. Also very good for using as a  
pick up. Top speed is regulated to 74 miles an hour. Range is  40 miles at  
freeway speeds. 
You can test drive one with no obligation. Before anyone buys a NEV I  highly 
recommend you check out an EV that GM spent millions on  developing.  
NiMH batteries handle the cold better and do not suffer being in a less  than 
full charged state. The NiMH battery also has a much longer life. The  only 
care is avoiding long or steep hills at freeway speeds..Steep  long hills where 
you can not drop your speed are hard on all batteries.

I  appreciate the feedback.

I do need a second seat to make it  viable.  I too need to travel on atleast 
TV hwy so the 25MPH versions  would not work.  Usually the farthest I drive 
from Hillsboro are Rock  Creek area or about 13 miles for my daughters piano 
classes and Banks OR for  Boy Scouts.  Not sure if there is a route that I could 
legally take to  get there.  The rest is all Forest Grove to Beaverton range.

Is a  3 wheel 45MPH Zap stable?   Safe?
