These look quite useful - almost like a mini-Mog.  The 40 km/h is a bummer.

Sorta looks like the kind of thing you would always wish was just a little bigger when you actually arrived at the job! Tidy about town though.

Impressive, if I'm to be honest. Looked more like a toy in the first pics.. capable little machine.

Agreed, difficult to judge the relative scale. It ‘appears’ to present a valid challenge to the cabstar level and waseezs all over the transit class. Maybe a contender for the perennial driving licence V over loading scenario (depending on how it measures up on price and driver class). I bet the price will kill it - only LAs and European LAs (equivalents) would be daft enough to part with tax payers money to buy ‘em.

Price or reliability... although if they had a low residual value maybe a second-hand lefty one from some city council bin collection or parks management past could be worth a chance? Are they Japanese? If they are there's some chance of picking up a well specced one from there.. not as expensive as you may think to freight one over. Parts and continuity of parts supply would be my concern, but really im talking shyte cos i ended up with a mog and every one of them is an oddball!

Company appears to be Spanish. This whole bloody Brexit nonsense is gonna bollox any potential there might have been right up! Bloody little Englanders will be the doom of us all! Never has Ken Clark talked so much sense - bin art 50, ignore the will of the plebiscite. I’m all in for Europe now since there’s a minor personal interest that obviously supersedes any wider, broader, national / international considerations....
