It is rated at 40 mph for flat roads,
however I have gotten mine to 50 mph
down a hill.

0 to 35 - 19 seconds
Range45 Miles (72 Kilometers)
45 miles is the an average so far per
charge. When I am trying to I can get
50 miles by being conscious of coasting
for a while to stop lights and
signs(making it so that I almost do not
have to use brakes). In addition, I
have to make an effort to avoid hills.

Additional Features4-point Racing Safety Harnesses this is necessary because
the windshield and roll-bar are extremely close to the
passengers head so to prevent head damage during an
accident the harnesses will restrain both passengers, not
letting their head get anywhere near these dangerous
objects.
