GM's second generation electric pods could be on sale as soon as 2020

General Motors is working on a second generation of its EN-V electric pod concepts, and hopes to have them on sale by 2020 for as little as £6200.

The Mk2 EN-V is expected to be larger to boost cabin space. A four-wheeled concept is also said to be in the pipeline.

GM has pushed ahead with the project after being surprised by global reaction to the EN-V. Insiders say China is interested in building a city with the necessary infrastructure to run the vehicles, while planned cities in South Africa and the US are also investigating the vehicles’ viability.
