Alongside these manufacturers we can also offer experienced technical assistance with the application of:

"Practical experience combined with enthusiasm in sales and reliability in service has maintained our good name since 1975"

The Combidrive Mouse car has gone full circle. Electric first with those heavy lead acid batteries, then diesel powered, achieving a world record of 568mpg (or 202km per litre), in 1997 (search for "mouse on top gear" to see road test). Now the Mouse is fitted with a DC brushless motor powered by a lithium ion battery. We won't be going for a world record just yet!
