MEV: eco lobster and electric speedster
The British manufacturer MEV My Electric Vehicle, specialist for electric golf carts, is available for eco-friendly Hummers and electric speedsters as well as electric limousines and electric vehicles suitable for work use. In 2011, the legendary cult car Hummer experienced its MEV resurrection with an environmentally correct electric drive. MEV had the naming and design rights transferred to GM in Detroit and has since had small city runabouts in the distinctive Hummer design produced in the Far East. MEV manufactures the E-Hummer both as a sedan and as a convertible. The Mev Zip is the latest model from the eco-friendly Brits – a small electric car for the city for two or four people. It is also available with a loading area. The range is rounded off by the MEV Daytona in a vintage look.
Eco Hummer and electric car: Hummer also as a convertible and limo
A brushless AC motor provides propulsion not only for the E-Hummer, but also for the other models. To make up for the difference in size to the original Hummer, the E version is equipped with all sorts of features that you usually don’t would belong to the original equipment of vehicles. The driven rear axle of the Öko Hummer has a differential. The power development of the electric motor is determined by the characteristics of the controller. MEV has a high-power controller in its range of accessories for this purpose. This increases the performance for mountainous terrain, while reducing the range. After 60 kilometers you should go to the socket.
The MEV Hummer HXT pulls up without a roof. The MEV Hummer HXT Limo is already more like an oversized golf cart, and is probably best suited for chauffeuring guests to resorts, golf courses and events – VIP-wise, of course.
The MEV Hummer HX is available from a retail price of £12,995 (equivalent to EUR 16,606). The HXT is slightly cheaper, starting at £11,995 retail. There are no limits to the special equipment and accessories of the Öko Hummer: If you want leather seats, for example, they are available in the colors white, blue or orange, and at an additional cost of 1,790 pounds (around 2,287 euros).
