Italian car company Tazzari has announced plans to launch its Tazzari Zero all-electric vehicle in the North American market next year.
The all-electric 2 door super mini (video) weighs in at a tiny 542 kilograms (around 1,200 lbs), leaving it capable of achieving 100 km/h (62 mph) in a nimble 5 seconds, with a top speed of 80 km/h (50mph) (more pics after the jump).
Tazzari will showcase the Zero at the Bologna International Motor Show in December in Europe. There is no news yet on a US price tag, but in Europe the Zero will cost just under 20,000 Euros ($27,000), which I have to admit sounds affordable, but perhaps not very competitive when compared with forthcoming rival offerings.
Author Update – Since 0-100 km/h (or 0-60mph) is the ’standard’ measure of acceleration I can only imagine that Tazzari have released a ‘hypothetical’ 0-60 mph time to give an indication of the levels of torque and acceleration experienced by drivers on their way to the (admittedly quite slow) top speed.
