Elcat Electric Vehicles
ELCAT is a battery electric vehicle manufacturer based in Järvenpää, Finland.
Elcat Automotive was owned by an electricity producer called Fortum until the production decreases in the early 21st century. Elcat began working in 1974 to design electric cars for Nordic climate. The first prototypes for Elcat's automotive industry were made in 1985 with a joint venture plan with Subaru's Sambar, Dias, and Domingo vans, while the first commercial product was released in 1990. Production ceased in 2002 when Subaru dropped the van models and Elcat lacked the resources to design the systems of a new model. To date more than 160 cars have been made. Main users were Finnish post office (Posti) and Stockholm-based delivery service. Now almost all cars are in second-hand use.

Famous quotes containing the words vehicles and/or electric:
“Television programming for children need not be saccharine or insipid in order to give to violence its proper balance in the scheme of things.... But as an endless diet for the sake of excitement and sensation in stories whose plots are vehicles for killing and torture and little more, it is not healthy for young children. Unfamiliar as yet with the full story of human response, they are being misled when they are offered perversion before they have fully learned what is sound.”
—Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
“The more I see of democracy the more I dislike it. It just brings everything down to the mere vulgar level of wages and prices, electric light and water closets, and nothing else.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
