The Multi-Tool of Utility Vehicles

Ready for anything from road to dirt, indoors or out, the street-legal E-LSV Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST is a dependable compact utility workhorse. With an on-road payload capacity of up to 1,100 pounds (1500 pounds off-road), and a turning radius of 150 inches (12.5 feet), it is tough enough for the big jobs yet small enough to get into tight spaces.

This 10kW ultra-low maintenance truck has an estimated 144 MPGe, up to 4.3 M/KwH. It has a variable range of 40–120 miles*, and a top speed of 25 mph or 35 mph as defined by local laws, or 40 mph off-road, based on customization.

More than Tough Enough

Manufactured in the United States, the Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST is built for the long haul and the heavy load.

EV Engineered Chassis

Our chassis are specially designed for electric utility vehicles— unlike many other EV manufacturers that use heavy and poorly balanced chassis that were designed for the internal combustion engines. Our computer designed and tested chassis feature a lightweight, modular and well-balanced structure for high performance, efficiency, durability and versatility.

Towing Powerhouse

The Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST is a towing powerhouse with a towing capacity of up to 2000 pounds. The ABLE’s electric drive system, with nearly 1020 NM (752 ft lbs) of rear wheel torque, enables it to pull effortlessly off-the-line. With an ultra-linear power delivery, the Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST is perfect for any load, small, or large.

Portable Power

The Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST performs double duty as a mobile power source for all your electric power tool work place needs. An accessory AC Power Inverter makes it the perfect power source for any 110v 15 Amp power tool. With the Tropos Motors™ ABLE™ ST you always have a ready supply of power to get the job done.
