They grow up so fast these days, don't they? The very first PEV0 to roll off our modest assembly line drove her 1,000th mile today and we couldn't be prouder. Not to be outdone, PEV0s #2 and #3 are nearing that 1,000 mile mark and the rest are closing the gap. These PEV0s have been out there everyday for months, rain or shine (or snow), driving all over Pittsburgh and helping the Pulse team of engineers gain valuable engineering data and insight into what works well and where we can find even more room for improvement. Our beta testers have replaced cars, buses and other unsustainable forms of transportation with our fleet of PEV0s and their responses have been incredible. As we begin our R&D cycle to design our next generation vehicle for mass production, the PEV0 beta testing data lights our path. New features are being designed into the next generation vehicle to make them even more commuter-friendly while still retaining the great range and hill-climbing ability of the original first generation PEV0s.
We set out on this journey to build the best two-wheeled electric commuting vehicle out there, totally revolutionizing the way urban residents travel around their cities. The PEV0s are the first step along that road, and we are excited to show you soon what's coming next!
So the guys here at Pulse decided to take a break from building bikes to make a video about what we do. We figured its been too long since a local electric vehicle startup made a short, mid-80's quality video and the time was ripe for us to give it a try. Let us know what you think!
We're still stretching our legs after our recent birth as a company, yet it's never too soon to start thinking about developing a professional corporate logo. We considered hiring a professional, experienced graphic design firm to do the work for us, but then we had a better idea: With Pittsburgh's many colleges and universities, our city is a hotbed of creative talent, so why not let local students design our logo?
As college students ourselves, we never take for granted the opportunity we have to get to "show our stuff" in such a professional arena, and we want to give that opportunity to as many other students in Pittsburgh as well. That's why we're planning on hosting the Pulse Motors Logo Design Contest! We plan on opening up the contest around the beginning of September to any college or university student in Pittsburgh. We're looking for a sleek, impressive company logo that encompasses the beauty and sophistication of our vehicles as well as the overall principles of green innovation and sustainability that we try to live by as a company.
If you or someone you know enjoys graphic design, keep checking back to see when we open the contest and maybe you could be the designer of the next great American automotive company (not to mention winning some pretty cool prizes)!
