Liu Fulong, who has been a carpenter for more than 30 years, has made a wooden electric vehicle by hand in Shenyang city, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province.
The car cost Liu more than 10,000 yuan ($1,608), and can continuously run for 20km once fully charged.
Apart from parts like tires, car seats, lights, small brakes and engines, the rest of the car is made of wood, including its body, rear-view mirror frames and steering wheel.
Liu said this is an upgraded version as he had made a similar one in August, 2014. Compared to the previous car, more parts of this new electric vehicle are made of wood, and the car has the top speed of more than 50 kilometers per hour.
