I was talking about cars in general, not just EVs.

Is there really a car called the ED? People want to drive Erectile Dysfunction, or Emergency Department (what medical professionals call the ER).

My point is, if the vehicle costs $20k, it better have something more sophisticated than a tube steel frame. While the vehicle looks fun, it also doesn't look much more complex than the electric car we made in high school, and we welded tubular aluminum for the frame.

You can get a used BMW i3 for that much monies.
