Australian Electric Car

Made in Armidale, NSW, the evMe is an electric vehicle available in Australia now. Depending on driving conditions, it has a range of 160-285km, and a top speed of 130 kph.

Being an electric car, instead of a petrol opening, there is a plug to recharge it (from a normal power point). Because of the high efficiency of electric motors compared to petrol motors, the cost of running the vehicle is just 2 cents per kilometre. And, of course, when vehicles are electric, that means they can be powered from renewable energy.
