The British car industry may be going down the tubes due to Brexit, but Ireland is about to embark on the manufacture of a car that is carbon neutral and made from the most advanced lightweight materials.

The Spika is a hand-built electric vehicle (EV), which from 2021 is due to be made in Carrick-on-Shannon. A prototype was unveiled at the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland Energy Show on Wednesday.

The car is “an ultra-lightweight two-seater fully electric car with revolutionary scissors doors allowing for ease of entry and exit”.
