Article by Christian A., on July 1, 2014

If you like retro-styled cars but want to be an eco-friendly person, then you better move to Netherlands as Carice has just unveiled its new electric car, the Mk1. As you can see from the photos, the new Carice Mk1 is a stylish convertible and its design resembles the iconic Porsche 356 Speedster.

Weighing less than 350 kg, the new Carice Mk1 shows a simple design as well as a simple interior. Do not expect the latest technology and a sophisticated interior as you will not get this. According to Carice, the Mk1 will be offered with a choice of two electric motors, delivering 20 bhp or 54 bhp.

The most powerful version can also be equipped with a range extender petrol engine that kicks in and helps you continue your journey. Using just the electric power stored in its batteries, the Carice Mk1 offers a range of up to 70 miles or 112 km, while top speed is 62 mph or 100 km/h.

Recharging the batteries takes no more than 2 hours. If you are interested, this new electric vehicle is priced from 26,600 euros or $45,500 and if you want one you’d better hurry up because the company is planning an initial production run of just ten cars. [source: autoblog.nl]
