With the previous announcement of the Tesla supercar and now the more pedestrian, Nice Mega-City, the wave of full-electric cars is truly upon us.

Top speed of the Mega-City is only 65 km/h (40 mph), thus the car will remain a strict city-only runabout, that and the fact that its range is only about 40-50 miles. Running costs work out to be about 1.1 euros / 100 km, though none of these details can be verified until the results of initial test drives of the Mega City car are made available in October.

When the car does go on sale, expect prices to start at £9,995.
