Blade Electron

Blade Electron MkV was first electric vehicle commercially available in Australia. It also boasts being the safest all-electric vehicle in Australia, with the recent addition of side airbags and four wheel disc brakes as standard. The side airbags complement passenger protection already afforded by the Electron’s wide body, ABS, dual front airbags, active front head restraints and charging cap that locks during charging to prevent child access (or theft).

The Electron MkV is a 5 door hatch with range extending rear spoiler and low rolling resistance Michelin tires and is available for lease at around $1,050 per month. With guaranteed buyback available, your Electron has a known value after 2 or 3 years.

The Blade Electron is specifically designed to be serviced and maintained by any licensed Auto Electrician, and contains 55% local content.
