Electrocar, Electrocart is an electric vehicle, typically a small cart with an electrical driving gear and a storage battery.

In the United Kingdom, similar small electric vehicles were known as electric drays.

A typical Soviet/Belarusian electrocar EC-1.00 (and also its modifications, including EC-1.00-1 designed and manufactured (as of 2007) at Mogilev Automobile Plant (MoAZ) is frequently used in factories for the transportation of not so heavy loads, because it does not emit harmful exhaust.
