Apparently tiny cars can go both ways across the Atlantic. After last week's news that the SMART will be coming to America in 2008, Canada's
Feel Good Cars announced that their Microcar-ZENN EV
(which is manufactured in France) will be introduced to the UK this year, and then to other European countries. Considering that, according to Feel Good Cars, the "average urban speed in the UK is now somewhere around 20mph (or considerably lower in London
), the average trip for an urban driver is rarely more than 10 – 15 miles", the ZENN EV could make a lot of sense for some people. The ZENN EV will be available in both two- and four-seater versions and will cost under £8,000. The car will feature regenerative braking and optional lithium ion battery power.
