1963 Datsun Pickup EV
Labelling little attention to itself when parked just outside the Las Vegas Convention Center at SEMA, was this chipper-looking aged Datsun pickup truck. We tended to it immediately, though, acknowledgments to its oddball position among high-horsepower muscle vehicles, lowriders with big wheels and a few elevated trucks.

The little Datsun looks tidy with aged-school graphics enlisted over an early ’60s-style aqua uniform, its little alloy wheels a distinguishing red. Then we spied the little Local Motors hypostases, for the institution that’s striving to make a go of crowdsourced 3D-printed vehicles and knew something else was up with the Datsun. Convinced enough, it’s electric. The supplied carries an arrangement of artilleries and the electric-drive system is obtained from Axion. Local Motors worked with Babbit Motor Werks on the make.
