T3 Series Electric Vehicle Featured in Hollywood Blockbuster

COSTA MESA, Calif.—The environmentally friendly T3 Series electric standup vehicle (ESV) by T3 Motion Inc., has been making a name for itself in the Hollywood realm. The zero gas emission vehicle has recently been seen in the “Iron Man 2” summer blockbuster movie.

After seeing the T3 Series on duty as part of the security operation at Ft. Lauderdale Airport, a prominent product sourcing company contacted T3 Motion with the idea of approaching the film’s producers. The innovative, clean-energy T3 Series is a perfect fit with the movie’s high-tech effects. Four of the vehicles were provided to the production to be part of the security patrol for the Stark Expo in the film.

Featuring a zero-degree turning radius and a compact design, perfect for maneuvering through crowds and tight spaces, with speeds up to 20 mph, the vehicle includes an integrated LED lighting system. It can run for less than 10 cents per day without requiring downtime due to the vehicle’s rechargeable, batteries (power modules) that can be swapped out, according to the company.

Earlier this year, the eye-catching T3 Series was featured during Super Bowl XLIV in a commercial by Audi entitled “Green Police. The commercial aired in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl to a worldwide television audience of over 100 million viewers.

The T3 Series ESV is deployed worldwide in a broad range of applications, delivering major benefits in terms of dramatic energy cost savings, increased productivity and enhanced community relations. Private security is one of the most popular uses of the T3 Series ESV with customers such as leading security firms as well as various facility operators and management companies.

The T3 Series has brought significant reductions in carbon footprint through its extremely energy-efficient, electric vehicle design compared to traditional fossil-fuelled vehicles. A major shopping mall property management company has deployed approximately 100 T3 Series ESVs nationwide and expects to see its carbon footprint reduced by over five tons annually. T3 Motion estimates that this customer will also save $3.2 million over three years by replacing dozens of gasoline-powered vehicles. Another has seen incidents in its parking lots drop by 60 percent since deploying the T3 Series.
