range x

As electric vehicles don’t currently have any backup plan if the battery drains completely, RangeX offers the best solution as our system will automatically start up when you need it most.

The Range X genset uses a Wankel rotary engine which has far superior power to weight ratio when compared to a traditional piston engine.
