North America: New greenhouse transportation vehicle launched at OFA

For the North American market the Virto was introduced by M-Products at the OFA Short Course in Columbus Ohio. The Virto is an electric tricycle that is driven while standing up and therefore offers a surprisingly good visibility in today’s busy traffic. M-Products has years of experience in the production of electric vehicles, mainly used in the horticulture. "The question was whether we could make a faster variant," according to Johan ten Veen, director of M-Products. "That has become the VIRTO and we are very proud of the end result. Especially since the Virto was completely developed in-house, from drawing board to final assembly, 100% Made in Holland”.

The Lithium Ferrophosphate (Ion) batteries ensure at least 2000 charge cycles and the three independent suspension wheels provide a perfect driving behavior, even on bad road surfaces.

What makes the VIRTO unique, is the standing position of the driver. This makes driving the VIRTO an exceptional experience. The simple and quick stepping on and off the riding platform, the possibility of reverse driving, the handbrakes and parking brake and the simple operation makes the VIRTO suitable for everyone and for a large variety of purposes. The VIRTO features a very spacious storage box. The battery package is easy to change and can be composed according to individual wishes. This makes the VIRTO also very suitable to use in facilities with shift work or in the rental business.

The Virto is approved as "Special Moped" by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment in the Netherlands, and may be (with proper insurance) driven by anyone 16 years old and up.
