Marketed by the Alibaba e-commerce site, the ElectricKar K5 is a small electric car at an unbeatable price.
If in our regions, the 100% electric Citroën Ami micro-city car appears at a rather affordable price (from € 6,900, excluding ecological bonus), and that the Freze Nikrob and other Dacia Springs are setting out to conquer the market European, the crown of the cheapest electric vehicle in the world would undoubtedly go to this electricKar K5 (also called K5M-2500).
If the electricKar brand doesn’t ring a bell, it was founded by Regal Raptor Motors Co., a Chinese company specializing in the sale of 100% electric motorcycles, scooters and other mobility vehicles.
It is on the site of the giant Alibaba that this resolutely low cost 100% electric quadricycle is marketed at the unbeatable price of $ 2,100, the equivalent of 1.800 euros. And this price can even drop to $ 1,800 per unit (around 1,500 euros) if you order more than 9 copies!
With a featherweight of 255 kg, an atypical look and very compact dimensions of 2.2 meters long by 1.09 meters wide, and 1.62 meters high, it can accommodate two occupants, and is equipped with an 800 W motor allowing it to run up to 40 km/h. Its 72 V battery with a capacity of 2.7 kWh recharges in 8 hours, and can offer up to 66 km of autonomy.
However, there is little chance of seeing such a vehicle land in our regions: it would indeed be difficult to homologate for the road, taking into account European safety standards, fortunately much more demanding than in the Middle Kingdom!
