Why the Duo?
Every week we have been getting calls and emails from people clamoring to see the all-electric Duo built for two in their driveway. For the last couple years, we have been working on how to bring the Duo to market on an extremely capital efficient budget to avoid some of the pitfalls that have tripped up other companies. The good news is that the effort was successful. This means that our manufacturing capital efficiency can be married to what one U.S. DOE manager claimed was “the lowest cost lithium battery system (he’d) ever seen” so that we can bring you the stylish looking Duo in 2013.
Bringing the Duo to Life
The federal tax incentive expires at the end of 2013. To comfortably meet this deadline and deliver 100 vehicles yet this year, we need to finalize the Duo engineering, testing, and build low-volume production molds. We need to start by March 15 and we need $750,000 in order to bring your Duo to Life. Buying a Duo will not only allow you to stylishly drive electric, but it will help us move forward. To thank you for your investment in the Driving Different with the Duo, we have some perks available, listed under “Manufacturer Incentives.”
