New, Improved Performance G-Wiz Electric Car Hits London Streets

In addition to a lithium ion battery upgrade to be available in 2007, the new G-Wiz includez 40% increase in mid-range torque resulting in better acceleration and hill climbing ability, a booster mode for short-term acceleration/power, a maintenance-free brushless motor providing a smoother, quieter operation, improved regenerative braking, an anti-roll bar for better handling at higher speeds and an advanced IPC (Instrument Panel Cluster) with an electronic speedometer, a trip odometer and an automatic computer-controlled indicator for power consumption and regeneration.

The first of the new, improved performance G-Wiz AC drive electric cars from GoinGreen have arrived and will be on London’s roads by mid-December. Launched at the British Motor Show in the summer, the G-Wiz AC replaces the current G-Wiz DC - and costs the same, at £8,299 inc VAT - but offers many enhanced and exclusive features including a class-leading increased top speed of 45mph and a range of up to 48 miles.

GoinGreen created the electric car market in the UK by introducing the emission free G-Wiz DC drive to London in 2004 and it is still the only electric 2+2 seater available. There are now over 750 G-Wiz customers, including 150 of those who have already ordered the new G-Wiz AC, making London the electric car capital of the world and the G-Wiz a familiar sight in the West End.

A unique feature of the new G-Wiz AC is the fact that it is upgradeable to high-performance lithium ion (li-ion) batteries when they become available next year. Li-ion batteries have a longer life than lead acid batteries and will also increase the car’s performance in terms of acceleration, speed, range and re-charge time. Also exclusive to the G-Wiz is a hill-holding restraint feature, making it easier to hold the car on slopes.


The wheel robots, complete with their own suspension, remove the need for a drive shaft and even the engine block, freeing up designers to make new use of the space in the car.

There are about 30 members in the Florida chapter, and many own several of the vehicles.
