The New GO-4 EV
TAILORED DESIGN – SPACE CONSCIOUS – ERGONOMICAL
RETURN ON INVESTMENT – DOMESTICALLY BUILT – EFFICIENCY
Proud to announce our new 100% electric vehicle, the GO-4 EV.
This vehicle inherently has all the benefits of the GO-4,
sizing remains identical to the gas model GO-4.
Our EV has plenty of power and range from its 96 Volt 32 cell
Lithium Iron battery and 19.2 KW electric motor.
Charges on 110V or 220V, uses a standard J1772 electric vehicle plug.
220V charges in 5-6 hours while 110V can take 10-12 ours.
Average Range is between 65-75 miles.
Overall We have experienced extremes ranging from 55 to 100 miles.
Many factors effect range such as terrain, climate, battery care…
In many states you can charge a full cycle for under $1.50 per day.
This is an ideal electric vehicle for municipalities,
or any other agency seeking a green commuter.

Range: Up to 100 miles
The manufacturer’s estimated cruising range for the GO-4 EV is a maximum of 100 miles, based on measured range tests at our facilty in Manitoba, Canada. We are in the flat prairie terrain, tests were completed in varying temperatures of 35-75F degrees. Actual range will vary. Some of the factors influencing range include driving conditions, terrain, speed, vehicle load, use of air conditioner or heater, tire inflation, acceleration and braking, and battery temperature. Combined these factors can decrease driving range by as much as 50 percent. In fact, battery temperature alone can decrease range by 15 percent in extremely cold conditions.
Tips for extended range
- Keep tires properly inflated. Low tire pressure reduces range.
- Avoid unnecessary loads. Weight reduces range.
- Slow down in wet conditions. Wet and muddy roads increase rolling resistance and decreases range.
- Lower the heater or AC when cabin reaches a comfortable temperature and recirculate air to maximize efficiency.
- Using the heater or air conditioning continuously at the highest setting can reduce range by as much as 40 percent.
- Perform annual battery checks, see owners manual.
- Do not leave AC, radio, lights running if not actually needed.
- Avoid hard acceleration unless required.
Typical Range Scenarios
The chart below provides estimates for typical ranges in a variety of driving scenarios:
As an EV user, you can have a great influence on the actual range achieved. Smooth acceleration and minimized use of accessory loads, such as the heater, will greatly increase your range between battery charges. As an example, driving at a constant speed, which puts a stable load on the battery, is much more efficient compared to driving with hard acceleration and braking.
