Electric Car Hits British Car Market
The British car market is now selling an electric car which costs less than two pence a mile to run, created by a father-son team.

Stevens Vehicles Ltd has installed a domestic power socket in its five-seater Zecar through which the vehicle can recharge its lead-acid batteries in less than eight hours.

The car priced at 15,000 pounds has a top speed of 56mph, and a maximum range of 56 miles.

It has been designed by one Professor Tony Stevens in Port Talbot, South Wales.

Stevens' banker son Peter is managing the business side, reports British tabloid The Sun.

They are now planning to launch a taxi-style Zecab as well as a Zepick-up,Zebeachbuggy and stretch Zecar.

The Zevan, a light commercial vehicle, goes on sale this week for 11,995 pounds.
