Costa Mesa-based T3 Motion has integrated new technology into its GT3 electric car that provides improved communication through nearly any mobile device, including phones, PDAs, tablets and laptops.

The 5BARz technology provides faster Internet access and stronger signals for cell phone reception. The Apple iPad has also been incorporated into the dashboard of the GT3. The device will include built-in software and a vast amount of developer applications.  

“In today’s advanced mobile communication environment, people on the go demand clear and consistent connections, as well as in-car access to information and the Internet,” said T3 Motion CEO Ki Nam. “As a next-generation consumer vehicle, the GT3 will incorporate technologies that address both these design requirements.”

The GT3 also features in-car video and data recording systems to track vehicle speed, location and g-force shocks. It also has built-in GPS capabilities and is integrated with Google Maps.

On the horizon (pending patent approval): a new three-wheel GT3 model with improved traction, stability and energy efficiency.
