New Dutch NEV

Cool little EV that is mechanically simple. 5,000 USD,16mph and a cloud of dust.
My issue is the lack of cargo space.
If you plan to carry more than a sack lunch, looks like you will need to attach a bicycle trailer.

the whole vehicle reportedly tipping the scales at 90 kg (198 lb). It can handle a maximum payload of 200 kg (441 lb).
One of our members has a signature line about carry weight. Two for one is impressive.

There exists what car designer's call step-over height. Ingress/egress may not be for everyone.

Jeremy Clarkson would drive it downhill and hit the brakes and turn at the same time.
The difference between science and screwin' around, is writing it down.

I'd complain about the low speed, but with that front wheel...I wouldn't want to do more than 16mph.
