Cheap China build quality but nothing is breaking yet. The company that makes this car is the builder of most all the NEVs that look like a Smart car knock-off. The powertrain for the first model was a 48 volt DC setup. Their next improvement was going to 72 volts and switching over to a 6.5kw 3-phase AC motor and regen braking. Most cars that look like this one has that powertrain. This model has a 120 volt 8.5kw 3-phase AC motor.
