Enfield
ENFIELD 8000

2-door 2-seater saloon.

Yet another well-meaning but unsuccessful attempt to sell battery-powered commuter car. Backed by Electricity Council (well, they would, wouldn't they?) who took 65 cars, but it flopped miserably with public. Far too expensive (£2808 in mid-seventies when Mini was under £1000), with short range. Car had space-frame and aluminium panelling, but engine had only 8bhp, marginal performance and 40 mile range. Who needed it? Even less successful than the Sinclair C5.
