Meyers Manx has introduced their new Manx V prototype.

Drawing inspiration from the original model, the Manx V has a tubular frame chassis, a composite body and 17- / 18-inch alloy wheels. While it doesn'tlook as rugged as its predecessor, the company says the car exudes "typical Meyers Manx hug-me styling" which is "pure, simple, emotional, lovable [and] functional."

Motivation is provided by a 10 kWh LifeMnPO4 battery which powers an electric motor that has a peak output of 83.6 bhp (62 kW). This enables the 1714 lb (779.1 kg) prototype to hit a top speed of up to 62 mph (100 km/h).

The Manx V will go into production in the "near future" and company says it could quality as a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle / Low Speed Vehicle which would make it street-legal (depending on federal and state regulations).
