Polish EV - Romet E4 All-Electric City Car [Video]
However, the component-sharing part aside, the Romet E4 is very cheap for what it is, costing just €8,500 euros, including the battery pack, which is not lihium-ion based. It is, in fact, a 16.5 kWh lead-acid system, which costs considerably less - the cost of replacing it is €1,950, and it is guaranteed for 400 charge cycles, which equates to between 3 and 5 years of average use.
The E4 has a maximum range of between 90 and 180 km, the latter being achieved if driven very carefully (or constantly downhill for most of the journey), and it has two top speed modes, either 45 km/h or 65 km/h - enough for its role as a city delivery vehicle (it only has seats in the front).
