Tiny MyCar named electric vehicle of the year

Be handy if you could buy it

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

'Leccy Tech No, we're not sure about the MyCar's looks either, but that hasn't stopped the electric two-seater winning GreenFleet magazine's electric vehicle of the year award.

The Italian-designed MyCar is made in Hong Kong and offered in the UK by Nice - aka No Internal Combustion Engine. We say offered, though the £8995 motor doesn't go on sale over here until later this month.

MyCar: not available to buy, but winning awards already

GreenFleet's judges appear to have gone for the MyCar on the basis of its specs appeal: its 40-mile single-charge range in "normal city driving" conditions and recharge time of 6-8 hours.

Italian design

Nice says the thing'll hit 40mph - possibly more with the wind behind it - and boy racers will be able to kit it out with 15in alloy wheels. Leather interior covering, seats that can be set to cool or heat your heinie, and a boot rack are among the other options available to buyers.

The battery's a lead-acid job, while the car itself is clad in fibreglass-reinforced plastic on a steel tubular spaceframe with tubular roll-bar.
