It takes two to Tango, and the Tango takes two!
The Tango car is a four-wheel, one or two passenger electric vehicle sold in kit form (approximately 8 hours assembly required). Because of its small size (width = 39 inches, length = 8 feet, 5 inches, height = 60 inches), the promoters bill it as capable of doubling freeway space and quadrupling parking. Indeed, two of these cars can easily fit side by side in a single lane of ordinary roadway and, as the picture at right attests, can even fit on a sidewalk with plenty of space to spare.
Vehicle weight is approximately 3050 pounds with 1125 pounds of that being in the battery pack. The batteries can be flash charged to 80% of capacity in 10 minutes. Vehicle range is advertised as 60-80 miles on a single charge and the promoters state that the roll cage meets race car specifications with a 5 star (highest) rollover stability rating.
