I've seen on line that ELF owners are not able to get new batteries from Organic Transit. So they are going to other sources and getting more capacity for less money. Please let us know what you find and post it in our FORUMS discussion section of this site.

I just read Organic Transit had a price increase, April 2016 . I had hoped it would be less costly as production increased. I guess not. They do have more options.

ORGANIC TRANSIT IS OUT OF BUSINESS 2019
From the OT website.
+500+ ELF's Sold! And Counting...
Through hills and valleys across 1 million miles there are now over 500 ELF owners in the world helping to ensure a healthier planet and healthier people. Thank you for believing in us and spreading the word about the most efficient vehicle on the planet!
++One Handed Seat Adjustment
Youâ€™ve been asking for it and is now available for all new sales of ELFs.
This slick, super light weight adjuster quickly and easily gives full seat range with one hand. Perfect for easy exits and entrance into your ELF, quick change for different riders and more room for passengers. This is also a huge improvement for those with physical disabilities.
+++Introducing The ELF UPDrive!
The UPDrive technology is a result of 1 million real world road miles.
Built on the platform of the most efficient vehicle, the UPDrive delivers unequaled cycling performance with smoother torque, uninterrupted acceleration, quicker response and lower maintenance.
All of the key driveline components: motor, transmission and battery are lower and as far forward as possible. Results are a dramatic decrease in unsprung weight, lower center of gravity, fewer moving parts, more precise handling and maximum efficiency. Less driveline friction means lower maintenance and longer part life. All newly built ELFs have the UPDrive. Experience it for yourself!

This new video says over 450 ELFs have been sold and triple that number are planned to sell this year alone. I think there will be one in every city by 2020. I have one in Phoenix and I've heard of one in Tucson. http://organictransit.com/cbs-evening-news-elf-video/
NO FOOLING, these are for real.

The ELF now has optional doors you can order.
ELF Doors $199.95
Try our ELF Doors for greater protection from the cold and elements. The ELF is designed to protect you from the elements and let air flow around and through it in the most efficient manner. Now, with our optional ELF Doors, you can keep the cold and wind outside, too. Made of lightweight clear polycarbonate and black CON-Pearl® plastic board, ELF Doors are easy to attach for inclement weather and detach for beautiful riding days. They can be retrofitted to any ELF model. ELF Doors will be ready to ship in early 2015 and will cost $199.95.

I just read these numbers on line. Great growth for Organic Transit
Cotter, who says he hopes to quadruple last year’s 300 units, is also pushing forward a pickup variety of the vehicle. Expect a Kickstarter campaign later this year, he says.

We just noticed the ELF electric motor is now shown as 600 watts instead of the original 750 watts. We can't find any notes on the OrganicTransit website or the two fackbook websites about the ELF. If we get any details we will let you know. The two facebook areas for the ELF are listed below.

I just read about these new options on the facebook post. New suspension coming soon and new batteries available now that are 16 AH instead of 10AH. PS you can get 48v 20 and 30 AH lithiunm batteries from other suppliers too. But these are from OT.
Below from post Dwayne Stutzman posted in Organic Transit ELF Owners Group
new options, one of which is a planned front suspension system. Rob said they could retrofit the suspension system on the current ELF’s, which is very interesting to me, as I currently ride a fully suspended tadpole trike, which is “very" smooth when compared to the ELF I test rode last August. That being said, the new “fat” tire option that I purchased also create a much smoother ride from that original ELF. But I will definitely be looking forward to adding the suspension when it is available.
Also, when I had talked with Brent late last week, he offered me a new option, a 16Ah hour battery, which they had just received that day from a new supplier in Germany. They are 40% more powerful and thus add 40% more mileage. OT has also sealed them in a water resistant carrying case, so that should alleviate the “wet battery” issue. Hope so! They are an extra @$200 per battery. As I had ordered an additional battery and the “fast” charger, I was able to get the 2 new batteries for an additional $350, as the $150 “fast” charger will not work with the new batteries. The batteries also came with 2 chargers, so can charge both at the same time.

I noticed the Organic Transit ELF blog will let you post but it never appears. It seems to be a 1 way blog. They can post you can not.
This site you are on ( ELFowners.webs.com) let's anyone post and anyone can reply.

I've heard that the high speed charger has begun shipping. 10 AMP , 5x faster?
(depending on your charger capacity – 2Ah and 10Ah are available).
I cancelled my Fast Charger because the chargers are not PFC, Power Factor Corrected to be more efficient and run cooler. I will stick with the little 2 amps (more like 1 1/2 amp) charger. Only USA made EL CON in California makes good PFC chargers.
Fast charging can also create heat in the battery and shorten the battery life!
