Reliant Fox Electric

Post by MikeT » Fri Mar 25, 2016 9:54 am

Morning all -

I was going through old photographs recently, and came across this I took a couple of years back while out walking...

I have no further details, but I thought it might be of interest here, as there are some fox / kitten enthusiasts about. It must be a pretty rare thing I'd guess?

Cheers,

Mike.

It is a home conversion to a very high standard.

There is a resume of the project on World of Reliant forum. The car uses 6 x 6volt deep cycle batteries plus a standard battery for lighting demisting etc. I believe the top speed is about 50 m.p.h. and the range about 30 miles (in a hilly part of Britain).

Of course like most Reliants the important thing is the smile factor!

I remember Welwyn / Hatfield council used to have a few Fox pick ups in the late 1980's that were used to carry mowers and other grounds maintenance stuff - they were small enough to be driven right along the cycleways and park on verges and footpaths without blocking them.
