Low consumption - $1 for a 50 mile charge
Bigger motor = larger consumption = more battery weight/cost
DrivetrainMotor coupled to a Fiat Panda 4 speed manual gear box.
Leave it in 4th for basic driving - 3rd is for uphill acceleration - 2nd for climbing curbs - 1st for towing trucks on hills

Top Speed45 MPH (72 KPH)
Keeps up with traffic but not for highways
Increasing voltage to 60 will help
AccelerationKeeps up with city traffic
Range30 Miles (48 Kilometers)
Never take it over 30 miles and the batteries will last very long.
Kewet 2 has an economy control dial - at best setting and economic thinking (accelation etc) it will give you 50 miles before batteries are ½ discharged (optimal)
