Ecocruise releases a new bug-like off-road electric vehicle

Ecocruise is a startup manufacturing Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV), often known as golf cart, but Ecocruise’s lineup is more interesting than just golf carts, especially its new off-road vehicle; the Cruser Sport.

The little bug-like vehicle is equipped with a LifePO4 battery pack which allows for a 75 miles range on a single charge – more than enough for off-road usage, but a potential drawback would be the max speed which the company advertises at only 35 mph.

Here’s a quick video of prototypes being tested:

Here’s a short gallery of images of the Cruser Sport:

    hey, if this isn’t your policy, so be it, but figured i’d communicate some thoughts here.

    we follow a lot of EV & car & solar & green sites to curate news & views, and as i’m sure you’ve noticed, we always credit, link to, and hat tip you when we find a story through electrek. this Ecocruise story was one someone specifically sent us awhile back. i was on the story list for awhile until someone finally covered it this week. i can only assume you found it through us… yet gave no credit/tip of the hat to us. i’m quite sure you’ve found other stories through us and also not given any reference. from my experience in this world of blogging for the past ~6 years, that’s not really cool. but as i said at the top, you can follow whatever policy/system you like. 😀 just figured i’d express my thoughts and then leave it at that if you carry on in this way.

      I forgot the “via: Autoblog” thank you. I too try to credit most of the time, but sometime I go too deep into a link rabbit-hole. Do you operate autoblog? because you say someone “sent you the story” and I’m not sure what you mean by that.

        Cool. So no worries. And I actually just came over here to say “feel free to delete my comment” — I just didn’t see somewhere else to leave it.

        Someone emailed us about the product and its website. So I’m assuming now Autoblog found it through us. Or maybe the person emailed Autoblog too. Anywho… Thanks for clarifying and the positive policy.

      Also you say that I found stories through your sites without crediting you before and I sincerely doubt that (like in this case), but if you can point out to any, I’d be willing to check. My policy is simple: If I find something through a website, but do all my own research through unrelated source, I use a “via” at the bottom, like in the case of this article. If I use the article as the course I’ll cite the publication directly in the article and link it. I think that’s pretty standard. But I don’t follow EV Obsession, though I see rewrites of my articles popup there often…
