Hand-Built All-Electric Carice MK1
When you think of something being “handmade,” you probably picture artsy wind chimes or maybe a bottle opener made out of grandma’s old dentures. What you most certainly do not think of is an all-electric roadster; but that’s the case with the MK1 from Carice Cars.
The Dutch automaker’s first vehicle is indeed crafted by hand in a small warehouse in Holland. Each model weighs just 771 lbs. (thanks to its plastic body) and features this spectacular vintage styling, including analog gauges and bucket seats, and a fully electric powertrain for a little over $36,000. A few pages are taken from the Porsche 356’s playbook, with the bug-eyed headlights and smooth curves. Under the hood, the MK1 gets its go from the lithium-ion battery pack integrated directly into the chassis. It’s available in limited quantities in three trim levels, with the horsepower measured at 5, 20, or 54 (remember, only 771 pounds!). [Purchase]
