The Reliant Robin BN-1 was officially launched. Built by B&N Plastics under licence to Reliant, the fibreglass-bodied Robin BN-1 had an 850-cc, aluminium, air-cooled engine attached to a galvanised chassis, giving a fuel economy of 80 mpg. On the same day, a Robin BN-2 was also announced, which was finished with a paint that changed colour depending on the light source and viewing angle. The BN-2 was the first Robin to feature electric windows and a CD-player as standard.
