2050 Motors Inc, an emerging company in the carbon fiber vehicle industry, has launched its carbon fiber electric vehicle in the United States. The e-Go Electric Vehicle (EV) features a lightweight carbon fiber body and aluminum racing frame and weighs under 1,500 lbs, including its battery pack.

The sedan version, the Ibis, is also expected to arrive soon. Both electric vehicles are to be showcased in Las Vegas to a private industry audience, and then opened to the general public for viewing.

‘Earlier this year, both the e-Go EV and the Ibis received rave reviews when they revealed the manufacturing facilities for the e-Go EV to a Chinese audience,’ said Michael Hu, president of 2050 Motors. ‘We are excited to make our entrance into the American market, and anticipate another successful event.’
