If there wasn’t video, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was all some kind of joke.
Back in October, the Canadian vehicle manufacturer Daymak claimed it was making a three-wheeled electric car which would, in its downtime, mine bitcoin, ethereum, or dogecoin. Well, we finally got a look at the apparently real thing.
In a video (first spotted by Electrek) posted to YouTube and shared on LinkedIn by Mike Chow, Daymak’s Vice President of R&D, we can see the “Spiritus 3-Wheel All Electric Car first drive test.”
The red car emblazoned with a maple leaf logo is shown driving around some relatively empty streets and parking lots. So, in other words, the car is real and can actually drive. Beyond those basic and observable facts, however, it’s unclear if the Spiritus delivers on its promised specs.
“Daymak Avvenire’s Spiritus is a fully loaded two-seater electric car with optional autonomous driving features, Wi-Fi connectivity, AC, 12-speaker stereo system, solar panels for additional trickle-charging — additions to add ultimate comfort to your daily commute,” explains the Daymak website. “With a super-fast charging time of under two hours, the Spiritus also sports a GPS alarm system, back up camera and so much more — all while offering a range of up to 480km – or 300 miles!”
Oh look, it’s a Tesla traffic jam in Las Vegas’ Boring Company tunnel
Potential customers can preorder the car starting at $21,495, and Daymak says “deliveries to start in 2023.”
No word yet on whether or not, by then, customers will also be able to mine Shiba Inu in their three-wheeled rides.
