Don't bother with the REVA so called g-wiz, they are poor road vehicles, with poor suspension, awkward driving position, drum brakes all round, lead acid batteries that don't last anything like they should probably due to faulty watering arrangement! can't get at the electrics without removing the rear seats, couldn't even get a wiring diagram for the one I owned for just over a year! and as for that lot at GOINGREEN they're just not interested!
I have to disagree with a lot in this post, I own & love a G-Wiz it was my first step into EV ownership & you have to speak as you find.
Poor Suspension, Awkward driving position. Totally disagree! its a bouncy ride, but not poor. its something I quite like about the car. the driving position (I'm a short arse!) is far more comfy for me than the main family car!
The watering system is great, making watering of the leads EASY! Mines never failed! & you only need to get to the electrics if something fails so its no big deal undoing the two bolts that hold the back seat in! & in nearly two years nothings failed on mine! I only took my seats out to wire in a computer I put in!
I've contacted Goingreen a couple of times for a brake cylinder & a trim part & both times they've been more than happy to do mail order, something I can't imagine my local ford dealership being interested in doing!
Being so small its surprisingly nippy round town! you can nip in & out of gaps & traffic you wouldn't dare to in a bigger car!
However yes the drum brakes aren't ideal! but you get used to them!
