In the late 1980s Ibishu rolled out a very limited number of EVs using heavy lead acid batteries, they were well received among motoring journalists but lacked the range and infrastructure to be of any actual success at the time.
But now in [insert year] a lot of EV infrastructure does exist making these tiny cars potentially useful again, some enthusiasts have restored used examples back to as new condition.
Major differences between these EVs and the standard engine powered Covet are the fully digital gauge cluster, trunk mounted battery pack, aerodynamic front fascia and of course, the electric motor.
HX-E offers you a 2 seat cabin with a 100kw motor delivering range upto a 40km/25mi range with a second battery pack, low rolling resistance tires and aero hubcaps.
DX-E is more practical for family runs with all 5 seats intact sharing the 100kw motor of the HX-E, with a reduced range of 25km/15mi as a consequence of it having fewer batteries.
LX-E offers 5 seats, a more powerful 150kw motor, body colour trim, nicer hubcaps and ABS as standard.
ZX-E offers all standard features of the LX-E, but with wider sporty wheels and a very powerful 180kw motor.

Semi mass produced EV, impractically quirky!
