A new, four-seat all-electric car is about to go on sale in the UK. Based on the Citroën C1, the Citroën C1 ev'ie is converted to electric power by the Electric Car Corporation Plc. ECC is accepting orders for the £16,850 vehicle starting tomorrow. What do you get for your hard earned pounds? A driving range of between 60 and 70 miles and a top speed of 60 mph. A full charge takes about 6-7 hours from a standard domestic 13 amp socket and costs 90p. Those numbers should appeal to at least 500 people in the next year - that's the amount that ECC expects to build in the coming 12 months, with a production conversion schedule of between 2,000 and 4,000 vehicles in 2010.
The ECC is made up of British auto industry veterans, including people who have worked at Ricardo, Jaguar and Ford. Details after the jump.
