Meyers Manx 0 600x399 at New Meyers Manx Unveiled with Electric Power

Even though Meyers Manx is a 50 year old design it still looks fresh and familiar. Older people recognize the car as the soft and cuddly buggy from their youth, while the younger generation may remember it as one of the coolest cars they drove in Grand Theft Auto. Now there is a new one, and it is poised for production in near future.

The new Meyers Manx is pretty much identical to the original models and has the same “hug-me styling” which is the car’s biggest selling point. The new prototype is an electric car developed jointly by Rev-TEC and Meyers.

The new Meyers Manx will classify under the category of Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV). Powered by a Polyphase AC induction motor, the Manx boasts 83.6 peak horsepower or 40 HP continuous, which allows it to achieve up to 62 mph, even though cars like these are usually limited to 35 mph on public roads.

Weighing around 800 kg, Meyers Manx prototype features 4 wheel hydraulic disc, vented front and regenerative rear, and sits on 17-inch wheels up front with 205 tires and 18-inch wheels rear with 225 tires. It has a tubular welded steel chassis, and the body panels are made from composite GPL.
