Three electric vehicles have been approved for purchase by City Council at a cost of $57,403. The quotes, obtained by city staff, were between the highest and lowest.

City officials reported the low speed vehicles will be used downtown during the streetscape construction. The vehicles have nine-seats, three rows of three bench seats.

The batteries provide a 50-60 miles range after one full charge.

Greenville began using the same vehicle in May as a Hop-In ride service to transport passengers free on a first-come, first-serve basis, from one end of downtown to the other.

By the numbers:

Quotes obtained by city officials highest to lowest:

• $62,820, Moto Electric, Atlantic Beach, Fla.

• $57,403, Star EV/Rogers EV, Simpsonville

• $51,747, Franklin Power Sports, Franklin, N.C.
