    Nice piece. I am sold on Electrics. :smile:

    Production wise I note the Top Gear style photography and that the commentator was relegated to doing only one or two things at a time. Slow but clear.

    Someone who drove it (Ev'ie) said it's pokier than the G-Wiz. The lead acid version of the G-Wiz. I thought the presenter wasn't especially convincing when he mentioned the acceleration. The words were there but they lack sincere feeling.

    From dpeilow's link:

    Ouch... not the review you want for your car. Hopefully the problems this car was having is not systemic.

    Way bad for poor Richard.

    Is it another indicator that making an EV is harder than slapping in some batteries and a motor?

    Very disappointing. I thought this car would be more polished given it has Citroen's blessing. But it appears to be another conversion. Hopefully the iMIEV comes out soon, perhaps that one would be the EV everyone is waiting for.
