    If you look closely, you'll see that some of those trikes have dual rear wheels versus the ones that have just single rear wheels per side.
    I have seen these things loaded with rock, gravel, bricks, etc that would put a 1/2 ton truck in the US to shame!

    I have actually been in the "factory" that made some of these. There are many different factories that make these, scattered all over China.

    I know what you mean. and to put all the rest of the US pickups to shame you simply need one of these jewels, almost every manufacture in the world makes them, in every size imaginable from the micro mini up to 8& 10 ton versions and beyond

    A 1/3 the cost half the weight as much payload none of the BS electronics, double to triple the fuel economy, wider longer interior cargo area as well as lower loading height, shorter in length narrower outer dimensions, sides can be dropped for loading or use as a flat bed, cheaper to maintain. can be purchased in crew cab configurations, and 4 wheel drive. And as an added plus you can still get them with a manual transmission. So what are they missing? The only thing I can see is the glitz and glamor of bling

    The corporate company I work for bought one of those trucks for our factory in Shanghai. It goes back and forth between our factory buildings and our vendors to get parts & materials. We've also got one of those tuk tuk trikes in the factory for going between the two buildings.
