This little white wonder is the new Shaolin LeTu K2, a low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) that I met on the 2017 Jinan EV Show. It is a two-door four-seat hatchback with a Jeep-like nose. It also has big black bumpers, black rails to the roof, super sized windows, and wheels all the way on the corners.

Four long years ago I posted a post about an interesting project where a small Chinese car shop was turning a Jeep Patriot SUV into a parade car. There wasn’t much progress for a while and eventually I forgot about the whole thing. Until today. Coincidentally I found a flock of new pics of the project, showing that they did indeed finish the car.
