Hi All,
I have never seen one of these on the road, or second hand for sale,
do they all stay up north :?: :? they seem more into the USA market.
I think they are starting a factory over there but don't bother advertising
much in the U.K. ?

I confess that I thought that they all went to London where their prices are competitive once you factor in the congestion charge.

I've not seen one myself, though I do own shares in the company.
Others here have though.

Me too, they were recommended by the Telegraph a couple of Months ago. Any idea how long they've been making EVs for? I'm sure I've seen references from the mid-70s.

I know I'm in my own world - it's OK, they know me here.

Smiths have been making electric vehicles since about 1935.
