Commuter Vehicles Postal Comuta-Van
Another Comuta-Car variant was called the Postal Comuta-Van. All of these vehicles were right-hand drive and were originally built under a government contract with the US Postal Service by Commuter Vehicles, Inc.
The overall length was increased to 142 inches (3,607 mm). A 12 hp (8.9 kW) engine, 72V battery pack, and 3-speed transmission were installed to meet the government standard. The Postal Comuta-Van was equipped with the only driver’s seat. However, some models were sold with an additional passenger seat and much more storage space behind the seats.
It was the only model with a front hood access and sliding side doors. All vehicles were built on aircraft-grade welded aluminum tube space frames and ABS plastic bodies. All of them had one-piece axles with spring suspension front and rear. Top speed ranged from 30 mph (48 km/h) to 50 mph (80 km/h) and ranged up to 40 miles (64 km) on a single charge.
