Folks, given that there will likely be a shortage of reviews until there are some actual deliveries, I did some digging and here's probably the next best thing whilst we are waiting: Reviews of the ICE version of the car before it was converted to electric by Kandi Motors and then shipped to Kandi America. It would seem that the reviews for the gas-powered versions are generally favourable. The gas powered one (which, BTW, appears to have recently been acquired by Toyota and was previously a Daihatsu) is known as the Daihatsu Cast. Behold here are 3 --> Customer Reviews <--. Enjoy! And, you're welcome. lol What this means is that just as with some Russian Ladas, with which you could get some Fiat replacement parts, with the K27 you will likely to also get replacement parts for the non electric driving part via Toyota! Options, options, options. It appears to have been a generally well-regarded automobile. For the gas-powered version it normally sports a 660cc engine (about the size of a ride-on lawnmower or dune buggy. They also make a "sport Model" which sports a 1,300 cc engine. This should at least help offer a point of reference in terms of customer satisfaction for the rest of the car that is not associated to its electrical power.

And yet here's another review of the Daihatsu Cast. Look familiar? This is the original gas-powered ICE version before it was modified by Kandi to become an electric. It is always interesting to see what others are commenting about the car part of the car. Mostly it is favourable. So, it would seem that Kandi made a good choice for their conversion: See this --> Review from Pakistan <--. This one has the same accents as the one in that video where that American reviewer took it for a test drive. It would seem that it is a slightly upgraded package. So I assume at some point there may be some options for future orders like this 3-tone paint and fog lamps, for example, minus that grille, of course, because it would be electric.
