With more electric cars appearing on the
roads, the Maranello4 is a new contender to compete against the G-Wiz.
Already available in Italy from EFFIDI Automotive group it will now be
available in the UK.
The plug-in Maranello4 is well suited for inner city driving. The two seater
vehicle has a range of 45 miles with a top speed of 30mph. As
electric cars do not produce emissions they are exempt from congestion
charge and benefits from discounted parking at key locations.

I drove this car for about 20 minutes a
few days ago and was pleasantly surprised. It feels far more solid than
the other electric vehicles I have tried, and looks less stupid too!
I was a bit worried about the 30mph top speed but actually in the city
it is quite adequate - and means you'll probably get a better range than
with cars that do 40mph.
One clever addition is the heater which runs off a small diesel tank
(one tank apparently lasts a year or so) - this means that valuable
power for the heating is not taken from the main battery. This is not
insignificant given than when the heating is being used it'll probably
be pretty cold outside and therefore the battery will be only working at
a fraction of its Summer performance.
