I would buy a Suzuki Samurai for a couple hundred bucks, extend the wheel base a bit, and lower the center of gravity. Then convert it to electric before I'd buy a Sondors E-car. For daily commute I'd want 50km on one charge. Then for long distance I'd just use a regular gas vehicle excellent on fuel, so the 1.6L engine or 1.3L getting ~25MPG or 11km/L which is what new mid size cars get like the Hyundai Elantra.

E-Bike Maker Sondors Plans Stylish $10,000 Three-Wheeled EV:

Starts:
Storm Sondors doesn’t like driving.

And yet he’s behind an ambitious project to build a $10,000 electric car through a company bearing his name. During Sondors Electric Car Company’s inaugural press conference at the Los Angeles auto show—just outside the exhibition hall in a space that had formerly been occupied by troubled Elio Motors—the CEO expressed his sentiments about driving and didn’t mince words about how he feels about the automotive industry as a whole. “I hate industries; I hate tradition,” he declared, at an event that’s very much an industry tradition.

... and promises that the next generation will be easier to pedal... :roll:

State of that art speed reduction systems prevents vehicle from exceeding 50 mph for a increased level of safety rarely realized in traditional vehicles.

Design features include oversized rear wheel to help it move briskly $9,999 msrp

The truth can be funny :)

Looks like a legit sized hubmotor to me. I wish him well. Hotrodded ES style I bet they rip.

We haven't seen a really goofy electric CSO since the ZAP Xebra.

Whatever puts oblivious car drivers into slower, quieter machines that impose less danger to others and more danger to them is cool by me, though.
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Yah. Watt he said.

MY "problem" is (other than any empty seats plus lots of empty cargo spaces) is the lack of pedals and the weight. To shave off peak power outs at starts and up hills, etc. The WEIGHT of the vehicle. (The Zap weighed 1000 lbs (460 kgs)... "unloaded". "NOT good". For most 21st-century "urban" travels at "slow" speeds.

SONDORS is now taking $100 pre-orders for its crowdsourced three-wheeled EV:
https://electrek.co/2018/01/06/sondors-opens-preorders/

Starts:
SONDORS, the company behind the impressively-priced $500 electric bike which had one of the most successful kickstarters ever, is now taking pre-orders for their three-wheeled, crowdsourced “Model SONDORS” electric car. The pre-order reservations, which cost just $100, are available on their website and will secure your place in line to get one of the early cars. The fee is fully refundable, minus a $3.30 transaction fee, and if you choose to buy the car when it is eventually available, your $100 will be applied to the price of the car upon making your order.
