In January of 1985, Sir Clive Sinclair introduced the Sinclair C5, a single passenger "electrically assisted pedal cycle".

The Sinclair C5 was an electrically powered tricycle (not a car) with body and a chassis designed by Lotus.

Because of its maximum speed of only 15 miles per hour, a very short battery life, lack of availability and poor reception from the media and the public it was almost an immediate failure. Out of 14,000 C5s made, only 5,000 were sold before Sinclair went bankrupt.
