EVTraxer... New EV for ~5 grand.... or what?

Was looking for batteries and stumbled upon this; the Czech EVTraxer.

They really sell it and it comes cheap:
EV-Power | EVTraxer - The Electric Vehicle Platform (L7e)

EV-Power | EVTraxer - The Electric Vehicle Platform (L7e)

The things I would want to do with that...!

What would you think? Too cheap to be good? To good to be true?

Well, one thing is speed. Or rather, lack of it.
At a top speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) and a range of 60 km (38 miles) I fear this has little potential to be my next commuter.

Makes you wonder. If only they put a bigger pack in. If only...
This could be a nice golf cart. Ah well.

2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"

I like kit-cars, but this one wouldn't meet all my requirements for all-around performance and range. I'd still like to get something that could get into a non-stop 250-mile road trip.
