Looks a lot like one of the Yank's hummers having just been on the receiving end of yet another bombing in Iraq !!!!

This was only one variation. The base was the motor and the two front wheels connected up to an after part of own construction. The motor was a one cylinder motor (fuel of unknown composition) and evaporator cooling. Eg, a water container around the cylinder and this hat to be topped up as the water boiled off. Cheers ulf

They are a very common sight inland in China &, as Ulf says, there are many variations. Many don't have cabs, there are LWB versions with 6 wheels, many have handlebar steering. Many look as though they are home made. Top speed seemed to be about 20 mph (unladen, downhill). Frequently seen overloaded & boiling over. They seem to be the workhorse of China.
