Published on April 26, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
Dongfeng showed the K01 Vender Truck, a mianbaoche made as a small shop. It ain’t no concept or no funnything, vehicles like this are still widely used in China to sell small goods and food, although in the big cities they are a rare sight these days.
What now, do people in the countryside buy? Dongfeng knows: weird dolls. The green one in the middle is a Fuwa, together with four other Fuwa’s the mascotte of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Toaster a nice touch. Some bread-thingies and some fruit. Water cooker for the noodles.
The front is inspired by a certain German automaker. The k01 comes with a 1.0 or 1.3 fou-cilinder. It measures 4150x1560x2180. Price including vendor kit: 70.000 rmb. The toaster though does not come as standard.
