John Lilly of Dragon Electric Vehicles is building the b-bugs by converting standard petrol sports buggies to electric power. He can design them with different performance characteristics. The b-bugs for the 2011 trial are designed to have a maximum speed of 30mph with a 30 mile range. You can see video clips here of a b-bug being driven along the hilly lanes of the Brecon Beacons National Park in October 2010.
The next clip shows what it’s like inside the B-Bug
