Eli ZERO — 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is just around the corner, and we definitely expect various electrified cars to be displayed on the show. This year, the electrified vehicle scene will not be only dominated by big and established brand as some startups are also ready to show their fangs and best creations. One of the most eye-catching is Eli Zero that is dubbed as “2-seater mobility device”. The startup company behind this electric city car recently released an image teaser and so far it looks pretty good and intriguing with plenty of glass treatment especially on the roof and door.
Eli ZERO Specifications
In terms of size and styling, Eli ZERO EV definitely has some Renault Twizy vibe. The car is compact and tiny, accentuated with a set of small wheels. Actually, we can’t really know the real size and dimension of this electric car from the image teaser alone. However, it seems like ZERO is just slightly smaller compared to Daimler AG’s two-seater hatchback, Smart Fortwo. Consequently, due to its mini size, the car is targeted for people in the major cities that have to face heavily congested traffic every single day.
“We believe Eli introduces an advanced yet simple product that will fundamentally shift how we engage with urban fabrics. Smaller, simpler and friendlier, Eli ZERO is the ultimate two seater mobility device for agile daily movement,”
the company representative said in a short statement, emphasizing the practicality of this mini electric city car. “Eli ZERO reimagines the NEV and addresses the dynamic transportation demands of modern cities and towns by offering a versatile driving solution for both urban and suburban neighborhoods.”
Despite of its size, the most noteworthy part of Eli ZERO’s visual is its front face. It comes with tiny grille as well as small yet distinctive headlights. To draw attention to the headlights, LED daytime running lights are added around the edges.
In addition, the car looks even more attractive thanks to its large and uniquely shaped windshield that stretches along the front up to the roof. Furthermore, if you think Twizy is not really satisfying for your taste, you might like ZERO better because it comes with fixed windows and doors that make the car more practical.
Battery, Charging details
We are definitely curious how far this small car can go on a single charge. It has has a 48V battery pack. The new Eli ZERO range varies between 40 and 75 miles. If that is true, it definitely would be impressive considering the company is still a new player in the electrified vehicle competition.
Eli zero Price and Release Date
This electric car will enter the USA and also European markets first. It will be on sale from late 2017. Prices is around $10,000 (£8,100). It seems like we will have to wait until the company reveals more details in the upcoming CES.
