A TALE OF TWO ISLES (10/03/2017)
The LαΒ for Transport Enginnering presents the movie "A TALE OF TWO ISLES" on Friday 17 of March. The film is about Enfield 8000, the world's first production electric vehicle, introduced in the early '70s -40 years before the auto industry rediscovered the benefits of electric mobility-, that was manufactured on a greek island! Enfield Automotive, a british firm based on the Isle of Wight, managed to win the Electricity Council contract for an initial production of about 100 electric vehicles, over the Ford and Leyland propositions. However, as production was about to start, the famous Greek ship owner John Goulandris, owner of Enfield Automotive, transferred the factory to the Greek island of Syros - a decision probably fatal to the car's future at a time when the rise of the petrol price, due to the energy crisis, could make E8000 the ideal solution for urban mobility.
