May we build one for you?




We recently revealed the new Defiant Xtreme EV3 Roadster© at Knoxville's 15th Annual EarthFest Celebration that took place at the World’s Fair Park on April 26th, 2014. The all-electric Xtreme Roadster has a top speed of almost 100 MPH and can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in about 7 seconds! This is not the electric car of yesteryear!

At Shockwave Motors, Inc. our plug-in electric cars are an innovative combination of the best of today's propulsion technology and sleek, aerodynamic styling.

The Electric Roadsters were designed with the help of a international team of experts. We are developing "purpose built" electric cars. We started with a clean sheet of paper and an open mind.

The Defiant EV3 Roadster© was designed from the ground up to capitalize on the efficiencies of an electric car; with an eye on a sporty design. Our EV's are full sized cars and are designed to carry a driver and two passengers. Our performance testing is demonstrating about a penny a mile for electric power and three cents a mile for battery depreciation. Our proof-of-concept, all electric roadster, is getting the equivalent of over 225 miles per gallon at highway speeds!

There are many Environmental Benefits of electric cars. Since Electric cars have no tailpipe emissions they significantly reduce all forms of air pollution in urban areas. In fact, EVs are considered zero-emission vehicles by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Pure Electric cars don’t have a gasoline powered engine, and therefore consume no power and create no pollution of any kind, when sitting idle at traffic lights or waiting in lines at fast food restaurants, banks, railroad crossings, and similar situations. According to the EPA, “A conventional gas car emits more greenhouse gases than an electric car driven in any area of the United States.” Studies have shown that when all factors are considered, electric cars produce less than half of the pollution of typical gasoline powered cars. Also, keep in mind, that somewhere for every gallon of gasoline we don’t use, up to 8 kilowatts of electricity are saved.

The Shockwave Motors Leadership Team:
We are a lean and nimble organization that is ready to take on the challenge of manufacturing the high performance Defiant EV3 Roadster©.
