    Too expensive with overly short range. Only kaki bodek will buy this type of truck for business use. It’s not practical at all

      The car is not expensive in China. In China car like this are subsidized to be cheap so more small business can strive and expand. In Malaysia, we have OKU ministers who tax these type of crucial business related vehicles causing most small business to go bankrupt or fail to grow. This is the difference. It is expensive because our OKU tak it like crazy

  • I don’t think 38.7 kWh of batteries can do 275 km. The most maybe 150 km based on 20 kWh on mitsubishi outlander phev range of 75km.

    Too expensive, not worth your money.
    Just buy a diesel single cab hilux or navara or ford ranger for the same (if not cheaper) price.
