The North American version has a range of up to 30 miles (50 km) and does not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h). Most models have a curb weight of 1450 lb (653 kg).

Use of the vehicle is currently legal as a pilot project to determine whether battery electric vehicles are safe to operate on public roads. Begun in 2005, the project will run for 5 years; although it allows two- and three-wheeled "e-bikes" to use public roads during the trial period, it permits four-wheeled LSV's like the Dynasty only in provincial and municipal parks and conservation areasTemplate:Update inline.

A version of the car appears on the American Sci-Fi Channel TV series Eureka. For the show's purposes, it is covered with photovoltaic cells to appear to be a solar-powered car.


The UK versions of the car are to have a higher top speed, 35-40 mph (55–65 km/h).
