The all-electric, American-made vehicle is unlike any other electric moto-scooter on the market. Proprietary system technology, unique urban design elements and affordable price point targets urban millennials and young professionals.

Austin Electric Powersports (AEPS) , a division of KLD Energy Technologies, announces today the launch of their first-ever electric vehicle, THE ATX 8080 moto-scooter. The unique, rugged, all-electric, and American-made vehicle is being offered via a limited edition first run of 500 units.

Unlike any other electric moto-scooter on the market, THE ATX 8080 utilizes proprietary system technology, unique urban design elements and is priced as an affordable, eco-friendly choice that targets young professionals.

This target market made Kickstarter a natural choice to utilize for launch today, and, unlike many crowdfunded projects, THE ATX 8080 promises to deliver in unprecedented time - Fall 2015.

The secret behind the energy efficiency of THE ATX 8080 is the KLD oneDRIVE™ system, which eliminates the need for a transmission and is one of the most advanced and innovative electric drive systems conceived to date. THE ATX 8080 is clean, quiet, emissions-free and transmission-free, with a low stance and low center of gravity. And since the KLD oneDRIVE™ is essentially eliminates the drivetrain, the bike has very few moving parts, making it virtually maintenance-free. No oil, no gas, no gears, no belts, no plugs or loose parts. In addition, THE ATX 8080’s 48V system has very low heat generation unlike most conventional high-heat, high-voltage 96V motors on the market. Its plug n’ play charging system uses a standard household connector, meaning a user can simply plug it into the wall just like a cell phone or laptop.

The sturdy and simplistic frame keeps riders closer to the ground for increased stability and safety -- and its lack of transmission and other moving parts prevents excessive power loss and reduces extra weight, resulting in up to 80 km range and up to 80 kph speeds on a full charge.

“The demand for cleaner transportation and American-made products was the driving force behind our creation of THE ATX 8080. We are proud to be a company that addresses both of these needs, while providing the market with a fun and care-free vehicle experience” said KLD Energy Technologies CEO Christian Okonsky, “In addition to the bikes offered on Kickstarter, for every 50 delivered, AEPS will donate an ATX 8080 to a deserving American veteran.”
