The little engine that can

And it's an electrical engine that can haul you and your stuff around. Saw this nano-truck on the street today in my hometown.

And it's an electrical engine that can haul you and your stuff around. Saw this nano-truck on the street today in my hometown.

It's Zap's Xebra.
It's a three-wheeler. Two in back, one in front. List price is $12,500. Top speed: 40 MPH. It'll do 25 miles on a full re-charge from standard U.S. electrical socket. It uses standard lead-acid battery, not the pricier lithium-ion with longer range. It's just ten feet long and less than five feet wide. The actual cargo bed is small compared even to the truck of a standard sized auto. This will not replace the plumber's behemoth truck loaded with pipe and gear.
