With electric vehicles (EVs) like the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Citroen C-Zero, Peugeot iOn and, within a few weeks' time, the Nissan Leaf hitting dealerships across the UK, Rudi Schogger, managing director of GoinGreen, has apparently decided it's time to pull the plug on the battery-powered G-Wiz. GoinGreen, the UK's exclusive importer of the G-Wiz, has confirmed, according to All Cars Electric, that it intends to cease sales of the diminutive battery-powered car this fall.
In an email addressed to current G-Wiz owners, Schogger reportedly wrote:
Sources close to GoinGreen indicate that sales of the third-generation G-Wiz have tanked and with the electric segment heating up, the less-than-spectacular G-Wiz, with its top speed of 50 miles per hour and range of 48 miles, no longer holds the distinction as one of the only battery-powered autos offered in the UK.Dear G-Wiz lover,
I am writing to announce the sale of the last new G-Wiz out of GoinGreen until Autumn 2011, as we have come to the end of the current stock.
