From the seller:

Ford was forced to manufacture this vehicle between 1998 and 2001 so it could meet the California Air Resource Boards Zero Emissions Vehicle regulations. It cost over $80,000 for Ford to make this vehicle! If you have seen the movie, Who Killed the Electric Car?, you will know the whole story of what happened to electric vehicles like this Ford Ranger. Most of them were crushed upon lease return! If you haven't seen the movie, you need to!

There were only 1500 Ford Ranger EVs made between 1998-2001 and today there are only about 400 left with only 100 that have the special Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries. Compared to older lead-acid technology, NiMH batteries are lighter, charge faster and increase the overall range per charge.

Lucky for you and 399 other individuals, not all of these Ranger EV's were crushed. These vehicles were warehoused after lease return and finally released to Ford's battery pack manufacturer for testing. We now have a limited number available for sale.

This particular Ford Ranger EV NiMH has been tested at a 60-mile+ range per charge. It has extremely low miles and with the super NiMH battery pack, it should be a very long time before you need to replace any batteries.

This truck is in great shape in and out. It has a clean Carfax and has never been in an accident. It belonged to a California utility and is a one-owner, non-smoking car.

The Ford Ranger is the perfect "green" utility vehicle for around town where you can carry a payload of 1,200 pounds and two people comfortably. It is also a good looking white truck with a black tonneau cover over the bed and a signature “Electric” under the “Ranger” emblem on each side.

Operating and maintenance costs are oil changes....just plug it in to fill it up with a charge. The car even makes its own energy when the accelerator is released and the electric motor generates a charge to the battery. It is powered by a rear-mounted 90-hp electric motor with a top speed of 75 mph and average range of 50 miles with the NiMH batteries.

This Ford Ranger has all of Ford's tradition of quality, and is well balanced, safe, a joy to handle, and will hook anyone on electric cars forever more. Everyone who has driven the Ranger EV is pleased with:

- how easy it is to drive
- its acceleration "feel" of power
- the regenerative braking

Powered by Nickel Hydrate batteries (NiHM), the Ranger EV has a "real-world" driving range of approximately 60 miles between charges and accelerates from 0-60 in 12.5 seconds, similar to the gasoline powered Ranger. Among the advantages of electric vehicles are zero tailpipe emissions, reduced maintenance and improved energy efficiency over the gasoline engine.

At the driver's home, or at public locations with a charging station with an AVCON connector for the front charging port. It takes about 8 hours to get a full charge of 23 kwh using the 5 kw onboard charger.

The Ranger EV motor is 67 kW (90 hp), with swing shafts at each end driving the two rear wheels; torque 140 ft/lbs. Use of the heater or air conditioning reduces range up to 15%. There is a radiator in the usual place to cool running temperatures of electrical components and the electric drive motor.

This vehicle was listed through Ebay and the listing has expired without meeting the reserve. The highest bid was $27,800 USD, and that is before the importation costs are added when importing it into Canada. We can inquire with the seller for the reserve price if you're seriously interested.

This is a pretty steep price, but this vehicle is valuable of course in fuel savings, as well as the rarity factor. We're guessing due to the high price, it's going to be going into a collection somewhere rather than used for it's intended purpose.

If you're interested in an Electric Vehicle, we have other options available in the way of conversions and Low Speed Utility vehicles (LSV). Let us know what your particular requirements would be such as range, cost, and capabilities.
