Power options between 36 and 48 volt, combined with battery options topping with lithiums, means the top spec can cruise at 63kph and have a range of up to 150km. This is definitely a potential alternative “alternative” vehicle. On top of that is currently available with 2 canopies, either the standard hardtop or a targa top. A convertible version was available as well but no longer.
It’s only down side, unlike the new crop of city electric cars such as the Renault Twizy, is the fact it only has a single seat. I suppose you could view it as an alternative to a bike for wet days, although one of the options is a child seat behind the driver facing backwards. I do quiet like this I suppose it’s got the retro look of the Bond Bug, which is no bad thing.
