Battery powered vehicles are quite popular in China. Hundreds of millions of Chinese own electric mopeds. Some Chinese own an electric rickshaw such as the one in the photo. Electric vehicles in China are cheap. An electric rickshaw like the one in the photo costs about $350 – $400 new. The top speed of electric rickshaws is usually no more than 25 mph. The traveling range on a full charge is usually no more than 30 miles.
