And one more news:

Kandi Coco EV goes on sale in US for $865
Introducing the Kandi Coco - America’s cheapest electric vehicle

In a bid to meet more stringent upcoming emissions regulations and growing environmental concerns, most automakers are turning to electric vehicles. But battery technology is proving to be prohibitively expensive, pricing EVs well out of reach of the average buyer. However, for those residing in the state Oklahoma, federal and state tax credits can put an EV in your driveway for a mere $865.

The “neighborhood electric vehicle” (for use in gated communities) is basically a glorified golf cart, but does qualify for federal and state tax credits due to its electric drivetrain.

The Kando Coco retails for $10,599, but is eligible for a federal tax credit of $4,435. Throw in a 50 per cent state tax credit for electric vehicles – worth $5,299 in this case – and Oklahoma residents can purchase a brand new Kandi Coco for just $865 (AUD$975).

The Kandi Coco features four-wheel disc brakes, independent suspension, single CD tuner and a fully automatic transmission with reverse. Top speed? 40km/h.

They don't tell us who the importer is but I'm guessing that it is Solus International of Seattle.

This Company, Kandi Technologies, is sure "under the radar". It doesn't even show as a Manufacturer on this site, but from this article it appears they may be the top exporters of Electric Cars to the US. And starting to sell in China as well.

"Exports

For openers, I suspect that most had no idea that KNDI was China’s largest exporter of pure 4 wheeled EVs to the US, with over 3500 mini-EVs delivered in the past twelve months."


I tried to post a link to this source, but this site won't let me post a URL, so if you are interested in the source, put this article title in your Google search and you will get the source.
