Compact Electric Pickup Goes On Sale In Iowa


A small electric pickup truck from Electric Motor Cars has gone on sale in Des Moines, Iowa, at a former Chrysler dealership. The two-seat runabout is based on the Romanian-built Dacia Logan that's sold overseas.

The retail price of the EMC pickup starts at $33,950. It's reported to have up to a 260-mile range and can carry up to one-ton of cargo in its small bed.

Des Moines Motors owner Gene Gabus, who's selling the truck, hopes to market the EMC pickup to businesses, "eco-type people" and "anybody that wants to fight the oil companies."
