The ELF is a European L2e (45 kph) or L7e (no speed limit)Electric Vehicle. Speed and acceleration is good enough to keep up well with inner city traffic.

Light vehicle weight and big battery capacity give lively performance and unusual long range. Since in typical everyday use, battery need seldom be drained more than 50%, high battery life can be expected (1000 cycles/6 years). Battery price currently is approximately $ 2.500 US. When reliable Lithium Batteries will be available at a reasonable price, vehicle weight can be reduced by 400 lbs. (180 kg) or range can be extended to 200 miles (300 kilometers)
