In the Netherlands, the Squad budget electric car was presented. The miniature car will go on sale in 2023 at a price of only 6250 euros. This is reported by the Carscoops website.
The Squad is the most affordable European electric car because it turned out to be a little cheaper than the French Citroen AMI. The developers call it a link between two-wheeled vehicles (mopeds, motorcycles) and cars.
In fact, Squad is an ATV with a roof and windows. It is designed for two people or for a driver with luggage. It has a functional design and a very simple interior decoration. Compact dimensions make it easy to maneuver in the city, and it’s not difficult to find a parking place.
The electric car received two small motors on the rear axle, developing a total of 5 hp. Its maximum speed is 45 km / h. In a number of EU countries, you can drive such a low-power car without a driver’s license.
The range of the electric car is 100 km, and the battery can be removed and charged at home. Solar panels on the roof are added up to 20 km per day. Actually, Squad stands for Solar Quad (a quad bike with solar panels).
Pre-orders are already being accepted for the electric car. There is also a development of a larger and more powerful four-seat version capable of developing 70 km/h.
