    The electric vehicle company(EVC) just sent me the following email. There is a link in the email to their website, updated today.

    To:
    XXXXXXXXXXX
    EVC has spent thousands of man hours over the past three years focused on developing what we believe is the standard for performance electric motorcycles. EVC is proud to announce the launch of our first product model, the “Volta” series which is scheduled to begin production shortly. The Volta series offers three model lines and six product models to choose from, The Metro, The RoadKing and the X21.
    EVC’s product development and strategy has been designed to enable us to offer a product to you the consumer that will fit your budget as well as provide the ideal vehicle for your daily driving and commuting requirements. Our models offer the performance, top speed and range necessary to allow you to comfortably ride with confidence in any driving environment.
    As a result of your past inquiry regarding our products, we are accepting reservations for our initial production run first from those product inquiries we have received to date. Our initial production run will be 250 units and will be a limited edition/signature production run. Each bike will carry a limited edition badge that will identify it as one of the original product group. This limited edition run will be announced to the general public only after those of you who have submitted product inquiries to us in the past are allowed to have the first opportunity to reserve your place in line.
    At EVC we are committed to creating the best products and services for our customers. We appreciate the interest you have shown in our product development efforts and wish to extend to you the first opportunity to become part of a unique group of consumers that we believe will be the first wave of a new era in economical and environmentally responsible personal transportation.
    In order to take advantage of this Limited Edition, we are offering customers the ability to place an initial and fully refundable deposit of $500.00 U.S. Dollars towards ownership of our ‘signature edition’ EVC Motorcycles. Simply visit our updated website, Volta | Step Thru Electric Motorcycles , and click the model you are interested and follow the link to place your reservation
    To encourage you to take advantage of this special offer we are including the following:
    · First opportunity to own an initial ‘limited” signature edition product
    · Should you wish to cancel your order at any time prior to delivery your $500.00 is fully refundable, with no penalties attached.
    · 30 days prior to the delivery of your EVC Motorcycle, you will be asked via e-mail to confirm your vehicle selection. At that time you will be able to finalize you selection or change models if you so choose. You will also be asked to select the color as well as look through any optional upgrades you wish to also take advantage of. We will be sending you under separate e-mail a list of all color options available (over 90 colors) as well as options to include upgrade brakes, rims and other features.
    Due to the high number of inquires we have had for our motorcycles; we hope you will reserve your place in line as soon as possible, when the last bike is reserved the limited edition series will not be offer again.
    Please visit our website and begin to experience the EVC difference. You will now have the chance to see why we will be second to none in the field of high performance electric motorcycles. With our web site you will have the chance to see all of our upcoming product models, along with full product specifications. Of course, we will be adding more accessories options, and including the latest happenings at EVC through our web site. So, stay tuned; there will be some really exciting moments yet to come, and EVC will be bringing them to you!
    Please visit our web site so you can see for yourself why EVC is destine be the leader in the 2 wheel world of 100% Electrical Motorcycles.

    Another email from EVC:

    Greetings EVC customers and electric motorcycle enthusiasts:

    I am pleased to be able to write to all of you and provide you with an update of the activities of EVC USA.

    All new technologies face similar challenges and hurdles and suffer from the inevitable delays encountered when trying to create something new. From Microsoft to Tesla, new products and new releases have to solve problems that are unforeseen and un-predicted. EVC is no different and we have been working to solve the issues we encounter on our quest to create the most advanced and innovative product we can.

    In addition to the technical challenges, we were forced along with most everyone else to deal with the impacts of global recession. The impact personally on EVC was real on our timelines as the general economy started its slide; however we overcame numerous obstacles that at times seemed insurmountable. We are in a rebound mode and exciting times are ahead. Significant advances have been made in the design and construction of our all-electric motorcycle platform.

    We have formalized relationships with key partners that will help us further the advancement in both product design and platform technology and are making great strides in recruiting a first class management team as well as creating an organization which shares a common vision: to bring to market the most advanced product to meet the needs of the urban commuter.

    Our management, engineers and team has spent over three years developing what we believe is the best combination of features, functionality, design and performance to create a product group aimed at providing real cost effective solutions for the mainstream public. We are looking forward to later in 2009 to be able to give you the opportunity to experience what we feel will be the ultimate in personalized next generation clean transportation. We are confident you will be more than pleased.

    Between now and the end of the year several announcements are expected regarding:

    · Model specifications and feature sets
    · Pricing
    · New photos and videos
    · Newsletter
    · Events that we will be attending in Q4 ’09 and Q1 ‘10
    · An enhanced web site
    · 3rd party reviews
    · . . . . . and more

    On behalf of EVC I would like to thank you, our loyal customers, and assure you that we will do our utmost to justify the faith that you have shown in us. We look forward in forming a long lasting relationship with you for many years to come. Our goal is to show the world that it is perfectly possible to drive without compromise – in a beautiful EVC Electric Motorcycle, with great performance and handling, while at the same time helping America cure its addiction to oil. Join us in this fun ride.

    Sincerely,


    Mario Valentino

    I had a deposit down for the volta from EVC. I just got an email yesterday from them saying they have been purchased by AMP Motor Vehicle Inc and that all deposits are being returned. They also mentioned that they have an "introductory product" soon to be released.

    Below is the email:

    "Dear Customer:

    I first want to express my deep gratitude to each of you for your commitment to the original concept and product goals that was originally EVC.

    You are on record as placing a $500.00 dollar purchase deposit to EVC. While we continue our electric motorcycle development efforts within a new corporation, we have decided to return all prior purchase deposits at this time. As we approach the release of our introductory product, we will to notify you of its features, availability and pricing.

    Please confirm your mailing address with me for purposes of mailing your reimbursement check.

    Sincerely,

    Wm Kent"

    Hey Doug,

    Your link code is messed up, you have 'tread' instead of 'thread'.
