Battery capacity is 5.8 KWh, which is enough to cover 80 km. It is charged from a household outlet and takes 2.5 hours.
The small electric car is equipped with regenerative brakes, power steering, a rear view camera and parking sensors. Seats are heated or cooled if necessary. There is air conditioning, a USB port for charging mobile devices, a sunroof and a 7-inch display.
There are base and luxury versions, which differ - would not believe - in body color. The former uses pearl white and silver, while the latter uses graphite black and blue. The price for the base model starts at $11,900. Sales of Eli Zero compact electric car will start in a few months in 13 European countries simultaneously.
