Electric vehicle excites new and used car drivers

The world's only tested and certified electric vehicle was this week unveiled before new and used car owners.

The world's only tested and certified electric vehicle was this week unveiled before new and used car owners.

With zero emissions and CO2, as well as a low cost and energy efficiency, the city car was unveiled at this week's British International Motor Show by Norwegian company Think.

It stated that the vehicle's battery can run for 126 miles after an overnight top-up and is 95 per cent recyclable.

Think UK managing director Richard Blundell said that the model is "cheap to run" and "great to look at".

He added: "Unlike the lower-range, electric quadricycles that have had limited success in the UK, the Think city is a real car which provides a realistic option for those motorists who want to drive a true zero emissions car."

Although a fairly recent development on the modern market, the origins of the electric car can be traced back to the 1830s and Robert Anderson's creation of the first crude electric carriage.
