Meet the Pint Size, Chinese Knock-Off Version of the Range Rover

Traffic congestion and disgusting amounts of smog have plagued major Chinese cities for years now. This has caused the country to dole out major restrictions, and it’s caused citizens and entrepreneurs to develop alternative-type vehicles. Sounds like some great pushes in the right direction, right?

Debuting late last month at the Shandong EV Expo in Jinan City, this low-speed electric powered vehicle was manufactured in a joint venture by two Chinese companies: Hebei Cook Electric Vehicle Corporation of Hebei Province, and Jiangsu New Grant New Energy Technology Corporation of Jiangsu Province.

According to the official spec sheet with the vehicle, the ride is powered by a 3Kw electric motor mated to a lead-acid battery, helping it reach a top speed of 31 miles per hour with a range of about 75 miles per hour. All horrible, horrible numbers.

So, why in the world was this thing even produced? We have no idea. All we know is that this is the worst Range Rover knock off we’ve ever seen. Maybe, you’ll find one at your local flea market.
