How old are the electric vehicles?

The average life span of the used vehicles depends on the type of vehicle, but can also change on the basis of how it has been used during its working life. How does Alke' operate: the Alkè vehicles have an average life span of 10 years or over, therefore if an Alkè ATX is found that is three years old, this still has a long way to go; this will not be the case for an electric golf car of the same age, which usually has a much shorter life span.
