|Buzz over first Hong Kong-made electric car
The first Hong Kong-made electric was launched in a blaze of publicity.
MyCar is a collaboration between EuAuto Technology, a company funded by the Innovation and Technology Commission and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
The small two-seater runs on batteries.
Other than being a very environmentally friendly option, MyCar is said to offer a cheaper choice.
It costs about HK$2.20 for a normal petrol seven-seater to run for about one kilometre and HK$1 for better ones.
However, it apparently only costs about 10 Hong Kong cents for MyCar.
To fully charge up MyCar, all it takes is about HK$10.
That is enough for it to run about 100 kilometres.
It is probably cheaper than riding on a bus. And MyCar will only cost about HK$90,000, according to Eric Cheng, a professor at Polytechnic University's Power Electronics Research Centre.
