T3 series clean energy, electric stand-up vehicle

T3 Motion, Inc. have announced the deployment of two iconic T3 Series Electric Stand-up Vehicles (ESV) to the Pentagon. The Pentagon's order will enable one of the world's largest office buildings to increase command presence, productivity, and will reduce costs and environmental impact.
The Pentagon — headquarters for the Department of Defense — has approximately 23,000 employees, six ZIP codes and a total of 17.5 miles of corridors. The Pentagon houses the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the United States' Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps.
"I am incredibly proud and honored that the T3 Series is assisting the Department of Defense with their safety and clean-energy initiatives. The T3 Series is already in use by the CIA, FBI, Defense Logistic Agency, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Airforce, and U.S. Marine Corps as well as other foreign governments such as France, Mexico, Canada and other Middle East countries. The Pentagon is a high profile security opportunity for the T3 Series (ESV) with daily visibility and command presence for 23,000 military and civilian employees, and represents a significant opportunity to showcase T3 Motion's cutting edge, clean energy vehicle," said Ki Nam, T3 Motion, Inc. C.E.O.

The revolutionary two-tire design improves traction, stability, and handling, while the low rolling resistance and rounded profile of the rear tires increase energy efficiency. The GT3 will incorporate the Apple® iPad™ into the sleek dashboard design.
Due to its three-wheeled design, the GT3 is classified as a motorcycle.
