The Xian Mangia is a fully functional electric double-cabin truck that not only costs under $3,000 but can also be shipped right to your doorstep.

The Changli Nemeca, a box on wheels that cost just $930 and could be delivered straight to the client’s home. Well, the idea of a super-affordable electric vehicle that could be delivered at home rather than be picked up from a dealership, because there is now a variety of different EVs to choose from, including a double-cabin truck that costs less than a midrange PC. The Xian Mangia can be ordered online from Chinese shopping giant Alibaba, for just $2,920 and will arrive at your door in 15 – 20 days.

The standard Xian Mangia is a bare-bone electric vehicle. It doesn’t even come with air conditioning or heating, but if you’d like them included, you can pay an extra $320 for them. You can also opt for a superior battery that increases the vehicle’s range, as well as a sunroof, and a “range extender” that, as far as we understand, is a conventional engine that lets you drive an extra 100 km on just 3 litres of gas. However, these are all extras that push the price of the Mangia toward the $5,000 mark.

Double-cabin trucks aren’t exactly famous for their speed, and the Xian Mangia is no different. It has a top speed of 55 km/h (34 mph) and ≤100Nm of torque. In terms of range, the manufacturer claims the standard battery is good for about 80 km, which is nothing to write home about. However, you can get a better range by upgrading to a better, more expensive, battery.
