Compact Electric Pickup !!

Post by Rislar on Thu Mar 04, 2010 1:43 am



A small electric pickup truck from Electric Motor Cars has gone on sale in Des Moines, Iowa, at a former Chrysler dealership. The two-seat runabout is based on the Romanian-built Dacia Logan that's sold overseas.

It's reported to have up to a 260-mile range and can carry up to one-ton of cargo in its small bed.

Des Moines Motors owner Gene Gabus, who's selling the truck, hopes to market the EMC pickup to businesses, "eco-type people" and "anybody that wants to fight the oil companies."

ROFL They really make me laugh going down this route, it takes that long to charge the beggars and we use fossil fuels to make the electric, bloody barmy if you ask me Rolling Eyes
