Eli Zero: The Affordable Urban EV That Promises Convenience for City Dwellers



Eli Electric Vehicles announced on Tuesday that reservations for its small city electric vehicle, the Eli Zero, are now available in the U.S., starting at $11,990.

Kickstarted through collective funding efforts, the Zero was initially revealed in 2017 and started distribution to European vendors in 2021. Eli had initially set its sights on a 2022 debut in the American market. That timeline has been substantially delayed, yet in the meantime, Eli reports that it has successfully handed over hundreds of units to customers across Europe and French Polynesia.

The firm is gearing up to initiate sales within the United States during this year's third quarter, followed by subsequent deliveries. Interested customers can reserve a production spot by">king a $200 deposit, which can be refunded. However, sales for the year 2024 will be exclusive to those who have made reservations. Eli aims to distribute its vehicles via regional distributors and dealership allies and boasts of a manufacturing facility with an annual production capacity of 4,000 units.

With dimensions of only 4.5 feet in width and 7.4 feet in length, the Eli Zero, an aluminum vehicle with seating for two, falls under the category of a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) within the United States. This classification restricts its maximum speed to 25 miles per hour. Although the cost has risen from the initial estimate provided by Eli, the increase is offset by the inclusion of a more substantial battery pack. The new battery options are either 8 or 12 kilowatt-hours, delivering a driving range of either 60 or 90 miles, a notable improvement from the previous 5.8 kilowatt-hours battery that only allowed for 50 miles of travel.

The vehicle known as

The Zero comes equipped with amenities such as gently closing doors and a Sony entertainment setup compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, our intuition suggests it might not match the level of sophistication we're expecting in the soon-to-arrive Afeela electric vehicles by Sony and Honda.

The Zero, designed for slower travel, presents an alternative approach to compact electric vehicles unlike the three-wheeled Aptera, which targets a 400-mile range in its initial model along with capabilities akin to traditional automobiles, or Arcimoto, whose three-wheeled vehicles fall under the 'autocycles' category, aligning them with motorcycles and permitting greater velocities.

Kia has announced the EV3 will enter production. Meanwhile, Rivian is upgrading its Normal, Illinois facility to increase production for its R2 model. Electric vehicles are significantly impacting fuel consumption. Additionally, we're discussing the optimal size for an EV. All this and more is covered here at Green Car Reports. Rivian is adjusting its manufacturing capacity at the Illinois factory to reach an annual production target of 155,000 units of its more budget-friendly R2 SUV. This figure surpasses the total electric vehicles delivered by the company since the introduction of its R1 series roughly two and a half years ago. Kia has made it official that it will be producing its smaller electric SUV, the EV3.

Rivian's sole manufacturing facility is undergoing modifications to enable a maximum yearly output of 215,000 vehicles as the company prioritizes cash flow management.

Even though electric vehicles might see only slight increases in sales this year, the growing total of electric vehicles in use is believed to be sufficient to affect the demand for gasoline. However, this doesn't necessarily translate to a decrease in gasoline prices in the future.

It's possible that this small electric vehicle will be sold in the U.S., although it hasn't been formally announced yet. It could compete with the likes of the Volvo EX30 and Mini Countryman.

A split between city and country perspectives? About 30% of Michigan's urban leaders deem planning for electric vehicle charging stations as highly pertinent, in contrast to a mere 10% of township authorities who share this view.

Stellantis has revealed intentions to manufacture a hydrogen fuel-cell variant of the Ram 5500 heavy-duty truck in Mexico, specifically for consumers in North America.

An increase of 20% in the energy capacity of the battery cells and a 30% improvement in the charging rate and driving distance might give these soon-to-be-released budget-friendly BMW electric vehicles an edge over

Electrify America is currently broadening its reach. Electric vehicles are seen as a method to combat poor air quality. Tesla has discontinued its entry-level Model Y in favor of a new model with a 320-mile range, which is priced just $2,000 higher. Also, is the Tesla plug the answer to charging issues? Stay tuned for these stories and others at Green Car Reports. Tesla has decided to stop its…

Most problems with CCS fast-charging stem from compatibility and payment issues across different networks. Switching the plug type won't solve these problems, as a veteran in the charging industry pointed out.

This past year saw the highest levels of lethal air pollution due to transportation ever reported in the 25-year existence of the American Lung Association's yearly report.
