$50,000. Their sales rep came in the cafe and I sat and talked with her for a while as she waited for her boat.
I know that a Polaris Ranger 4 seater is about the same price and rides just as smooth, its definitely not as quiet, but Im not sure which is less harmful to the environment. Yes, its not electric, but that doesnt mean its not "greener". If I have understood my conversations with others correctly, most of our electricity comes from Mexico. Thus, you would have to figure out the carbon footprint or just the overall negative effects that are created by the factory that produces the electricity that you're using to re-charge your GEM or electric cart. Plus the costs of electricity is outrageous here, so that needs to be figured in as well. Although, if you're buying a $50k Hover-round, then I guess your electric bill is probably not a big deal.
The next year model is going to be equipped with a solar panel roof that will recharge the batteries while running or parked though....so now we're getting somewhere. I would have to say that those will be undoubtedly greener than almost any motorized vehicle on this island.
Very cool looking cars though and a MUCH smoother ride than any golf cart on this island. I think everything here should be electric...the amount of carbon monoxide that we all inhale in a day of walking around town is probably sickening...literally.
