Oklahoma Residents Can Buy Chinese Electric Car for $865

Our original story about the Kandi Coco, as seen on "Tiger King" with Joe Exotic.

In the U.S., there are only a few electric vehicles on the road and the majority of them carry fairly hefty price tags. Chinese cars are similarly rare, usually only seen at auto shows in the U.S. Kandi, however, is a Chinese electric-vehicle manufacturer whose Coco electric car can currently be bought for only $865—provided you're in Oklahoma.

Indeed, only people living in Oklahoma qualify for this incredibly low price. The federal government will give buyers $4,435 back on the purchase of one of these cars, and an Oklahoma state tax credit takes another $5,299 off, for a combined rebate of $9,734. Slash these discounts from the Kandi's MSRP of $10,599, and one costs just $865.

For that $865 you get a Kandi Coco neighborhood electric vehicle. It has a top speed of 25 mph and can be driven on streets with a speed limit of 35 mph and under.

The subsidies allowing Oklahoma residents to purchase this car so cheaply expire at the end of the year, so act quickly if you want a cheap neighborhood electric car. Check out the Kandi Coco here at Kandidirect.com.

Update March 30, 2020: It seems the Tiger King himself, Joe Exotic, took advantage of the offer, as a Kandi Coco was spotted in the background of the Netflix docuseries. Check out this one recently offered by Play Toys in Redlands, Calif.
