To restore and convert a car to electric is pricey and, in many European countries, impossible. So why not build a completely new one!
Our partner in southern France, Mehari Loisirs, noticed that Meharis in the area were mostly used to cover short distances, and did not have to reach very high speeds. At the same time, demand for electric cars was growing for environmental and tranquility-related reasons. They developed the E-story.
Because of its light weight and maximum speed of 85 km/h, the E-Story falls in a similar vehicle category as, for example, a Renault Twizy. Smart decisions and series production allow for prices to remain relatively low. This L7e-class does set strict criteria on safety and build quality, hence a roll-cage and 3-point seatbelt mounting points were developed and several other improvements were made, tested and certified. As such, you can get a registration in the Netherlands which will allow this car on all roads.
Urban drive, beach-mobile, cool company car, you name it; we can see a market for this. We very recently became importers and literally got this car from France last Thursday, so we could show it here. Getting our hands on one was a challenge in itself, as the demand for these cars is quickly growing – and so will production.
