    If this thing existed I'd be tempted by the little camper van version.

    Looks cool but I think I read it only has a 10kWh battery or something tiny?

    Again I'll believe all this when I see it!
    Battery capacity ranges from 10-30 kWh, but even with the base battery the eBussy promises 124 miles of range thanks to solar panels and energy recuperation systems. The eBussy will also rely on an ambitious battery pack exchange program, in which customers can swap out depleted batteries for fully charged ones at battery exchange stations around Europe.

    10kWh would be fine for some applications like a local delivery van that does only low speed city traffic and never does more than 60-80km per day. I'd say a typical post office delivery van in the likes of a Dublin high population density postal region could easily fall into this, as it follows a certain route and the driver spends most of his time on foot delivering to the doors. Highly populated areas are the places that we need EV vans the most (and where we need to get rid of the cancerous diesel vans first)

    There's no need to pay for 30kWh if you never need more than a third of it. And it looks like the batteries are so modular that you can easily add on battery capacity at a later stage anyway

    Doing more reading on it today and I'm definitely interested, although it is very very small. Menionts that motor is only 20hp but doesn't say how many motors, is 4wd. Top speed 90km/hr .

    Would be all over it if it was closer to van size
