Tropos Motors has released extended-range models of its battery-electric compact utility vehicles (CUVs). The ABLE XR is powered by a 26 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and offers up to 160 miles of range. It can travel at up to 45 mph.

The ABLE XR’s battery offers enough power to run air conditioning in warm weather, and is capable of towing up to 2,000 lbs. on public roads or 3,000 lbs. on closed campuses. Along with the standard ABLE CUV, it offers the shortest turning radius in its class, a load-sensing brake-proportioning system, hill-hold, reinforced doors, a full-length steel chassis, and a driver-side airbag.

It accommodates a variety of bed packages, from box truck and flatbed to sweeper and first responder vehicles. The ABLE Easy-Swap option allows customers to change out their bed packages to suit various activities throughout the day, week, or year.
