China already sells more electric vehicles than the rest of the world combined. And there’s a long list of the categories you can choose from—including large buses, sports cars, two-wheeled motorcycles, and zippy scooters.

中国的电动汽车销量已经超过世界其他地区的总和。而且种类繁多——其中包括大型电动公共汽车、电动跑车、电动摩托车和电动脚踏车。

One of the hottest categories in that list is “tiny cars.” These mini-vehicles can cost as little as $1,000 and, in China at least, you don’t even need a driver’s license to use them. The catch? Their top speed is less than 40 miles per hour, they run on cheap lead-acid batteries, and they have little to no crash protection.

其中最热门的当属“电动小汽车”。这些电动小汽车的价格可以低至1000美元,而且,在中国,你甚至不需要驾照就可以使用它们。”这些电动小汽车使用廉价的铅酸电池作为动力源,最高时速不到40英里,几乎没有防碰撞措施。

And if we compare within Pickman’s category, the gasoline version of the Ford F-150 pickup starts at $28,000 and its upcoming electric version is rumored to start at $70,000. The Pickman can’t do everything that a Ford F-150 can do—such as travel at a top speed of 160 km per hour (100 miles per hour) and carry a payload as much as 1,000 kg. But it still has potential for use on farms or construction sites, where the car can be used in the day and put to charge at night at a lower cost than a gas-guzzling truck.

让我们将“Pickman”电动皮卡车与同类型的车型比较一下,福特F-150皮卡的汽油版最低价为2.8万美元,而且传言福特即将推出的电动版F-150,其最低价为7万美元。福特F-150能做到一些“Pickman”电动皮卡车所做不到的事情——比如可以开到160公里每小时的(100英里每小时)速度,并携带多达1000公斤的有效载荷。
但“Pickman”电动皮卡车仍有适合它发挥潜力的地方,比如农场或建筑工地,在这些地方,电动汽车可以白天使用,晚上充电,其所花费的成本要比耗油量大的卡车要低的多。
