T​hat's right you can now order a brand new Peel P50 from factory, and it's road legal!!

A​ company based out of London now own the rights to the world's smallest car and you can now buy one starting at just £8,250. That will get you a gutsy all-electric Peel with a 50 mile range, and a top speed of 30 MPH!! However, if you are willing to splurge a little you can go for one of two petrol engines; £1,249 for the smaller engine, and a whopping £4,245 for the bigger 124 cc 4-Stroke engine.

Y​ou have several options when buying your new Peel, a do it yourself kit, a factory-built P50, a spacious 2-seater Peel Trident, and best of all a limited edition Spyder version of the car originally built for a Saudi Prince.

T​he cars are true recreations of the original, and at just £8,250 they are one hell of a deal. I say this because an original P50 can go for as much as $200,000 at auction. Not to mention that a brand-new Peel might be just that little bit safer.

T​he interesting bit

L​ook, I get it £8,250 is a lot of money for a glorified shopping cart. However, what if I told you that if you live in the United States you could have a brand-new all electric P50 for just $1,100.

That's right because as of now Peel will sell you a brand-new P50 for $10,600. However, the U.S. has a system of tex-rebates for all new electric "cars" sold. Specifically, the federal government will give you $7,500 for your eco-car, and states such as New York can give anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000 on top of that. The only requirements being; that the vehicle in question is a production car, and that it has a range of at least 25 miles. All of which the P50 meets.

T​he logic behind all this is quite simple. For the time being electric cars are more expensive than their gasoline-powered counterparts. So to boost mass-adoption the Federal and State governments will supplement that difference.

A​s a result of all this if you order an electric P50 in America you will get one hell of a deal, and you will most certainly be having the time of your life.

  • Can’t wait to see an LS swap for one of these

  • Now hold on, the base model Dacia Sandero is something like £6000. Isn't £8000 for a motorized Little Tikes kind of outrageous?

    • It is outrageous! You get Renault parts and Romanian build quality for 6 grand. But for an even smaller car you pay 8 grand and no Renault parts or sponsoring by James May!
