Croatian Car Ready To Hit The Market

Croatian car maker DOK-ING are just weeks away from releasing its unique three-seat electric concept car, the DOK-ING-XD, on the market. At the start of 2013 the 10-15 pre-ordered electric cars will be finished, with plans for the car to be commercial made during 2013.

DOK-ING, a privately owned Croatian company established in 1991 for the production of robotic Unmanned Ground Vehicles for unexploded ordnance removal, firefighting, and underground mining, are currently in negotiations with partners and distributors.Most distributors want the manufacturing of the XD to be moved off shore but the Croatians are keen for it to remain in Croatia.

“Our wish is that the project continues to develop in Croatia,” said DOK-ING, adding that they hope to employ around 300 people when commercial manufacturing starts.

The XD4 can go from 0–100 km in 4.2 seconds. Currently, the only planned non-Croatian part will be the 32 kWh battery which can go for 200-250 kilometers with a charge time of between three and eight hours. The first prototype was completed at the beginning of 2010. DOK-ING first exhibited the car at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
