The NICE (No Internal Combustion Engine) Car Company has picked up the 2008 GreenFleet award for best electric car.
It was awarded for the MyCar, a new electric two-seater that was launched at this year’s British Motor Show.
Italian design, a starting price of £8,995, and running costs of around 2p a mile no doubt helped the MyCar achieve such recognition.

GreenFleet praised it for being stylish and functional as well as green, which should go a long way towards increasing the appeal of electric cars to city drivers.
The GreenFleet awards, which took place on 25 September, recognise ‘pioneers of environmental fleet management’. The MyCar has a charging time of 5 hours, a maximum speed of 40mph, and a maximum range of 60 miles.
NICE is also working on a battery powered Fiat 500, dubbed the e500.
The MyCar is available to order now, with first deliveries commencing in October.
