It looked EVish, I never got to talk to the driver, thoughI lurked suspiciously near it for a while. It had a good sized little flatbed, and looked like maybe it was a city rig, as in city maintenance operated. Anyone recognize it?

They work best if the roads are lacking steep hills.

The town of West Y. is flat, so no problem there. It looks like a good alternative to a full size pickup, the usual fall back vehicle, for the town. Thanks for the identification.
