Here's what the world's cheapest electric car is like to drive

We've been following along with Jalopnik's Jason Torchinsky's adventure in buying the world's cheapest electric car from China (the sticker price was $1,000, but after shipping and various fees it ended up costing about three times that).

In this video, he takes his brand new Changli for its first drive, during a rainstorm, no less. It immediately got stuck in mud but after that, he got it on the road and had a fun spin. The major issue is that it is very slow. "Like all of my experiences with the Changli so far," he says, "I'm genuinely surprised at how much better it is than I was expecting. It drives! It drives in a perfectly usable manner, not quickly at all, no, God no, but for a neighborhood vehicle, it absolutely works."
