This is $900 car imported from China with $2000 between shipping and customs fee. Quite interesting what China can make and sell as a city electric car. Certain Chinese cities allow these which I guess many owners there prefer over bus and no license required to drive on public roads.

Interesting. It's amazing how population density impacts vehicle design.

I wonder if you could get a vintage Corbin for a couple grand and retrofit Lion batteries for the lead!

I've been following this article for a while. Jason Torchinsky is a fantastic writer. He's paid about $2,000 for it All In. Keep in mind it had to have a plug and a alot of other things on top of the $900. His idea was that some golf carts are $10,000 can you do more with less. Many people in the SCCA paddocks have talked about restoring mini mokes and the like due to the prices of golf carts.

You see a lot of different vehicles when they don't have to be jack of all trade. IMO the economy of the American lifestyle outside of major cities leads to SUVs and the need in China leads to this kind of vehicles in their fleet. This is likely a good site vehicles for large company campus, school, municipal government, etc that they value parking and don't need something running non stop 247. We have these kind of vehicles in college campus in the US but they are usually pickup style golf cart.
