Of course, you can't think of zipping down the highways – one charge only takes you forty miles but in-city driving is a breeze in this little car.
The whole point is, is it really a car or is an electric powered quadricyle? Well, whatever the nomenclature – and the debate rages on – the G-Wiz continues to capture and hold many an urban driver’s heart. The United Kingdom retailer, GoinGreen, has claims to the fact that the manufacturing, the shipping and the first sixteen thousand miles of driving are carbon balanced.
When you look at the G-Wiz in principle, you will find that a vehicle such as this one is really well suited for densely populated urban settings. The main reason for this is because the G-Wiz functions as what is considered to be a low cost transport for certain goods that are really too bulky to be carried on public transportation.
This is one of the niches that are associated with vehicles like the Smart that are labeled as small gasoline vehicles. The G-Wiz actually trades the reduced convenience for a cost that is even lower.
The company has safety in mind, in spite of criticism to the contrary. There’s a new safety frontal crash-tested package in place as well as increased protection in the front and side. The brakes have also been improved to test 30% better.
You can recharge the battery to 80% in only 2.5 hours, and a full charge will take about 8 hours. This is a "wet" battery and will need to be topped off with de-ionized water every 3 to 4 weeks. The batteries of this fully electric vehicle should last 3 years.
When you look beyond the green creed, you will find that the interesting aspect that follows the G-Wiz is that the vehicle that is built in India is currently being sold in the United Kingdom, Malta and Japan. The manufacturers of the G-Wiz have also raised the stakes, expanding the capacity of vehicles built annually to six thousand.
