Everyone knows the story of the Phoenix, the colorful great bird that rises from the ashes, reborn to fly another day. A similar story of a great bird is the remarkable little single passenger vehicle that captured the hearts and minds of a unique group of progressive thinkers in the late 90's and early 2000's, the "Sparrow" built by Corbin Motors.
After crashing in 2003, the ashes of this little bird lay dormant but fortunately a hot ember remained. That ember kept the dream alive. Quietly the R&D continued even through the toughest of financial times and finally in 2010 Sparrow was reborn and the return flight was underway.
This will be a technologically advanced version of the original Sparrow. It will feature its original configuration, 3-wheeled, single passenger ZEV but will utilize a lithium ion power source with an electronic battery management system to produce prolonged battery life and greater range.
The Sparrow's world debut was on the Fourth of July weekend 2016 during Corbin's annual Hollister Rally / Open House at its world headquarters. It was a great day, and the all-new Sparrow was well received. The good news for the Sparrow continues as we have been awarded a United States Patent.
