That'll be like the BMW Convertible and the Mazda RX7 along with various others, including a Yellow HSV Monaro.

still pretending.... 400klm range.. on a good day with the wind behind you downhill with a 400kg payload LMAO

Quote
While Rivian and Tesla talk a big game and argue among themselves about who will release the first all-electric pick-up/ute, Nissan and Chinese manufacturer Dongfeng have combined forces to beat them to it with the Rich 6 EV. Based off the Navara’s body the Rich ute range traditionally was supplied with either a petrol or diesel engine.

...In the Rich 6 EV, that engine has been replaced by a single 68kWh electric motor that reaches the astounding figures of 119kW and 420Nm. The Nissan Dongfeng collaboration has an uninspiringly low payload of 490kg, along with a claimed top speed of 110km/h and more importantly a claimed range of 403km.

Latest research on CO2 savings with EVs in Australia whereby 75% of our power is currently coal fired-
https://www.thegwpf.com/new-report-electric-cars-have-higher-co2-emissions/
The graph tells the story if you're running one on Tas hydro vs Vic brown coal naturally.

Here's more on how Norway can be a world leader with EV penetration as that article notes with the Hyundai i30 pricing over there-
https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/jul/02/norway-electric-cars-subsidies-fossil-fuel
I guess you can bankroll anything like that if you've got a big piggybank Future Fund made from North Sea oil and perhaps that should be our tack.
We just want to build a big piggybank for the same with our coal and LNG.

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Of course even if the EVs are running on hydro solar and wind that still won't be good enough for the omniscient Green overlords who know what's best for us all-

The further out of reach they are from having to be interrupted by messy trivialities like local elections the better they're able to understand the really big picture on all our behalf   :-*

Better range, but same problem with refueling in the bush though!

Makes a lot of sense.....run a diesel gennie....probably without a dpf,  to put out a piddling 20A for that one car.
All this renewable talk has been put down by claims it will make almost zero difference to global emissions.
