EvMe electric car
From Greenlivingpedia, a wiki on green living, building and energy
The EvMe electric car is an Australian-designed electric car based on a Mazda2 small car.
The car is manufactured in Armidale, NSW, by the Energetique company in a project led by local Armidale academic and organic cattle farmer, Dr Phil Coop.
About $2 million and $3 million has been spent developing the evMe for commercial use.
The first car was produced in March 2009 at a price of $50,000.
There are plans to build 100 evMe’s a year, priced at $70,000, with initial interest mainly from corporate fleets.
- a silver lever on the floor near the handbrake which is a kill switch that allows technicians to cut the electricity while they work on the vehicle.
- As the evMe has no gearbox, there are only three "gear" selections available: park, drive and reverse.
- A display gives information about battery voltage, remaining charge and range (up to 280km).
- Eventually, the evMe will have three modes: performance, normal and limp home.
