Thanks. Even the Polaris is more than he needs for payload, but less than he'd like for enclosure. The bike is out, as there are dogs to haul now. Has anybody seen one of these lately? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citicar

I have seen them before, but the last time someone tried getting one going, it seemed like a LOT of work for not a great vehicle...

Brushed or 3phase controllers are cheap anymore, lipos out of a salvage EV ditto. They just have a lousy reputation so nobody wants them, then they are allowed to rot away outdoors.

Why anyone would want one I don't know. I've stood next to one. Ingress/egress is terrible. Compare to the Bond Bug:
