The Endominum Alelve was Endominium's first electric car. It was released as a concept during ZIFCA 1991 as the Electron (stylized as eLectron), was released in limited production in 1994, and released to the general public as a production vehicle in 1996.
The Alelve had little to no competition because there were very few electric vehicles on the road. In 1997 when the Prius was launched, the competition grew a little bit, but the competition was still very scarce.
The Alelve is charged by one singular AC power port located directly in front of the driver's door. Its MPHC rating is 30.

+Note: "-3" means that three were returned, counting against total numbers, so, technically, in 1994, only 222 were given. ++Note: If there were extra cars not sold by December 31, 2003, the vehicle would've been sold into 2004, and if the same happened, 2005, etc. etc. etc. No matter what, December 31, 2007 would've been the very last day of sales. All cars would've been refurbished by the factory in which the individual vehicle was made in the year of 2005 if not sold.
