angkor ev

Add Cambodia to the list of countries hoping to boost its domestic economy by making electric vehicles. The Southeast Asia country of about 14 million people will be home to the Angkor EV 2013, which will be produced by Heng Development Co., according to the Phnom Penh Post.

We've heard lots of promises about new and untested electric cars, and the Angkor follows in those tire tracks, starting with an impressive range of 186 miles on a full charge. This is somewhat tempered by the top speed of about 37 miles per hour, according to the Post. While few other details have been released about the EV, the model is expected to retail for less than $10,000. No volume numbers were disclosed.

As for the car's looks, the Angkor EV will be a two-seater (we think) with scissor doors that open vertically, according to a three-minute video (below) that features groovy electro hip-hop music but no specifics on the car. While it's hard to tell whether the car is a two-seater or a very small four seater, its grill does look like something akin to that of a Nissan Quest minivan.
