    Post $3100 Electric Pickup Truck?

    A lot of people know me for my electric bike passion. Whether it’s an electric bicycle, scooter, or motorcycle, I love throwing a leg on an electric steed and riding off into the sunset. And sure, I enjoy an occasional electric car ride as much as the next guy. But sometimes, and for some jobs, you simply need a truck. Nothing else will cut it. And that’s why there are many interesting new electric pickup trucks hitting the market.

    And for those times that you just simply must have a truck, this Alibaba electric truck is absolutely not the one you’ll want to reach for. But it IS just weird enough to be featured as this week’s entry in the Awesomely Weird Alibaba Electric Vehicle of the Week series.

    Measuring in at a handy 3.06 meters long (10 ft, 1/2 in), the Lesheng M1 rolls on adorable 10-in wheels and is likely a dream to park. There’s no need for a backup camera when you can practically reach out the window and grab the rear bumper. The base model is powered by a 2.2 kW motor, though you showoffs can upgrade to a boastful 3 kW if you feel the need to compensate for anything. And sure, the little truck-thing may appear a bit puny, but it is brimming with confidence. Or at least its manufacturer sure is, as evidenced by the assurance that it can handle a 1,500 kg payload, “no problem.”

    I can see the Alibaba truck (I feel guilty saying the word, "truck) finding an audience in highly populated communities. It's small, ugly, cheap, but can you imagine the wear and tear on those tiny golf cart tires?

    The F-150 is kind of a lie. It's supposed to have a "range extender" in the back that looks like a toolbox. If the truck's battery runs low, crank up the range extender (generator) and repower the battery. They never tell you the range extender will run on fuel.

    What is the towing capacity of the F-150?

    Then, we have the question of what will be producing the energy needed to charge the batteries on those flukes?

    Honestly, what a waste of time and money.

    Broken English? Maybe it meant no rollover worries.

    LOL

    I thought maybe it means "turns over." Like, it starts without worry.
