Heuliez files for insolvency, Friendly EV in doubt?
While Heuliez is most known for helping European automakers like Vauxhall, Opel and Peugeot manufacture retractable hardtop mechanisms, the French company has more recently been working with energy provider EDF on the development of electric vehicles. Just last month, Heuliez announced it was accepting orders for the Friendly, a 12,000 euro ($15,500 in the U.S.) three-seat electric vehicle powered by a nickel-based battery pack.
We're not certain at this point how the firm's financial hardships will affect the delivery times of its Friendly EV. Deliverys had been expected in February of 2010.
