Awesomely weird Alibaba electric vehicle of the week: $4,000 electric pickup truck

• Electrek

This week's feature is a small-yet-mighty electric pickup truck designed for utility and off-road usage, though it may even be street legal as an NEV in the US.

If the proportions look at bit odd on this electric pickup truck, that's because they are.

It's a mini-truck, and its specs are mini too.

We're talking 12-inch wheels, an intimate two person cab and a payload capacity of 500 kg (1,100 lb) in the 1.6 m (5'3″) long bed .

But while it may be small, this is still a fully functional truck. The bed doesn't just have a tailgate, the sides fold down as well to transform into a flat bed. The cab has all the basic automotive accoutrements you'd expect, such as a radio, air vents (A/C costs extra), windshield wipers, adjustable seats, manual locks/windows and three-point seat belts for safety. There's even a 64L (2.3 cubic feet) frunk up front!

This isn't just a glorified golf cart, it's a small yet well-equipped utility vehicle.
