The Citroën C1 ev’ie is assembled in the UK from the donor car. The 4-seater electric car offers a range of 60-70 miles when fully charged and a top speed of around 60 mph. Its Li-ion battery pack can be fully charged in 6-7 hours from a domestic 13 amp socket.

ECC expects to produce around 500 C1 ev’ies over the next 12 months, rising to between 2,000 and 4,000 units in 2010, dependant upon demand and government support.

The C1 ev’ie is priced at £16,850 (US$25,000) and is available directly from ECC. Following the launch, the UK car and van hire company Green Motion announced its intention to feature the vehicle within its fleet line-up.
