DEFIANT EV³ ROADSTER
Unveiled in May 2014, the Shockwave Defiant EV³ Roadster is in pre-production for launch in 2017. The roll-out of the Defiant EV³ will start in the Southeastern United States followed by the rest of America and international markets after that. The Defiant EV³ is a three-wheel three passenger electric vehicle. Shockwave claims the Defiant EV³ charges in half the time as the Nissan Leaf when charged from a Level 2 Charger. The classic design of the Defiant EV³ can easily make it the environmentally friendly ZZ Top Mobile. The Roadster’s lithium-ion battery stands out from other electric vehicles in the sense that it uses large format prismatic cells, making it less susceptible to thermal instability.
