The SAM from Cree AG of Switzerland is a nifty looking electric vehicle that could catch on big in Europe as a city loving, petrol hating runabout. The 2 seater has a range of about 50 miles, a max speed of 65mph and accelerates from 0-50 kph in 7 seconds. It’s very cool looking and…gasp….unlike its electric rivals costs a mere £5000.00. Apparently full production is just about to start.
Meanwhile back in the good ole US of A, the Tango electric car concept is making its way towards production. Top speed 120mph plus, acceleration from 0-60 mph in 4 sec and a shape which quite frankly makes my eyes hurt because it looks so much like a normal car that’s been flattened between two trucks.
See what I mean? Oh and don’t expect any change from $80,000 for the early production models according to this article.
