the camping kit is fully removable and lightweight, so buyers can choose between a mini motorhome and an electric tricycle with a payload of 1,157 lb (525 kg). the road-legal pickup features a 3.4-hp electric drive powered by a 4.3-kWh deep-cycle gel battery with a 6-8 hour charging time. it has a range of 37 miles (60 km) and a top speed of 25 mph (40 km/h).
