Carpenter debuts wooden electric car in Xinjiang

(China Daily)

09:30, September 10, 2012

A Chinese maker of engraving machines shows a wooden electric car at the China-Eurasia Expo 2012 on Monday in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. The car was made by a 38-year-old carpenter from Kashgar in Xinjiang, who spent half a year and 60,000 yuan ($9,450) completing it. The pure electric vehicle might not be as environmentally friendly due to its liberal use of wood, but it is able to travel 150 km on a single charge and has a top speed of 50 km/h.
