Branching off from an earlier post ‘Romania Trashes Old Vehicles’ I want to highlight the electric car I’ve seen around London called the G-wiz (Reva). It comes from the Maini Group in India and is available in the UK from GoinGreen for just under £7000. More expensive than I expected but, they’re not exactly mass produced as yet. In fact, GoinGreen don’t even advertise the product!
For one man’s experience of driving his Reva or G-wiz (probably an American inspired(?) name for the Reva since there is US $’s in there somewhere) see his blog;

There is also some new competition (currently in the trialing stage) in the new Smart EV
