A new electric city car, the MyCar CV.2, has gone on sale in London as a rival to the G-Wiz i.
The MyCar CV.2 has a 3.73kw DC motor that is powered by four 12V lead acid batteries, which have a range of up to 70 miles. It produces a top speed of 40mph and takes between eight and 10 hours to fully recharge.
By comparison, the G-Wiz i, starting at £7,795, has a 6kw AC induction motor powered by eight 6V lead acid batteries. It has a range of 48 miles, produces a top speed of 51mph and takes eight hours to fully recharge.
This week GoinGreen, the UK retailer of the G-Wiz, announced more details of the G-Wiz L-ion, which it claims is the first mainstream electric vehicle to use lithium-ion battery technology.
The car has an extended range over the standard G-Wiz, travelling for up to 75 miles between charges. GoinGreen is also about to roll out a fast charge station, which will give 90 per cent charge in an hour and 100 per cent in an hour and a half.
