This year SONDORS Electric Car Company used crowdfunding to raise over $1 million to build a prototype of its revolutionary three-seat, three-wheel, all-electric vehicle. That dream is now a reality.

Being a test car means that it’s not road-legal, so the reviewer was limited to 20mph (32km/h) while sitting in the driver’s seat, but even so, they were able to say that the steering feels “quite tight”, and the suspension is not “loose”, comparing the Sondors EV to a “go-kart experience”.
The car, which has a striking look, to say the least, promises to cost no more than $10,000, will come with one of three lithium ion batteries (either a 75, 150 or 200 mile range), two front seats, one back seat, a push button start and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in five to eight seconds.
On the outside, it doesn’t look half bad, especially from the front, where you cannot tell that it moves away from the four-wheel layout, and in the cabin everything is surprisingly well organized, even in a prototype that lacks a rearview mirror, seatbelts, and air conditioning.
