New C5

Postby Derek_Stewart » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:14 am

Hi,

Just seen the BBC News article about the new C5:

The nephew of Sir Clive Sinclair has developed a successor to the Sinclair C5 electric vehicle, which he hopes can find a market. Richard Westcott went to meet Grant Sinclair and check out his invention.

I wonder how they clean the windscreen in rain or snow.
But hey, why care, in a few weeks European requirements are no longer an issue.

You reach around the side and wipe it with your hands of course....

Might be missing some features such as mirrors too.

I am not quite sure whether it might be classed as a car or a bicycle - if a car, then it would need an annual MOT and presumably couldn't use the cycle lanes....

Never mind - I am sure we will find out more in 28 days..... (that was the delivery schedule right?)

I wonder if it will be as big a success as his uncle's X-1: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/n ... e-X-1.html

The classification is based on the power output of the motor, basically its only allowed to assist. E-bikes are fully legal as long as they obey the power requirements no matter what they look like.

In a similar way as you do with a motorcycle helmet, I suppose
