The Maya 300 was unveiled this week and we can now get a better handle on the new all-electric vehicle that is put together by Electrovaya (with a bit of help from ExxonMobil in the battery) and will be used in a new car sharing project in Baltimore. While we heard some price ranges for the car at the beginning of the week, USA Today is saying that the upper ends of those ranges are the right ones. That means that the 60-mile version might be $25,000 while the 120-mile Maya 300 could cost a sweet $35,000. And, blurry street photo on Maya’s new website aside, the Maya 300 is currently considered an NEV, which means it’s electronically limited to go no faster than 25 mph. Gas2.org spoke to people at Electrovaya who claimed that a highway version is in development and “will be to market within the next few years.” The Maya 300 NEV should be available for purchase in 2011. Until then, Maya Mobility’s new website describes the car and idea in more detail, while the AltCar website explains how the new car sharing service at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore will work.
