It is currently just sold in China and is formed by SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile, a joint venture between SAIC Motor, Liuzhou Wuling Motors Co Ltd and General Motors. The car was started in early summer and has been a remarkable success. According to GM Authority, Wuling has received 50,000 orders since its initial launch.
Inside EVs reported this week that sales were rise 110 percent year-over-year. Around 15,000 customers received their new Hong Guang Mini EV during the month of August, and that has only meant a 104 percent increase in sales since July. This quite possibly makes it the best-selling battery electric vehicle in China today.
But beyond the adorable looks and the wheels that tickle me, why is this electric car selling like toilet paper during a pandemic?
First, it's very cheap. The Hong Guang Mini electric vehicle has a starting price of $ 4,162 USD, while a fully loaded car will set you back $ 5,607 USD. There are electric bicycles on the market now, which are more expensive. Affordability doesn't mean you get an extra car.
Standard safety features such as anti-lock brakes, tire pressure monitoring systems and rear parking sensors. Now you can see the photos that show the mini air conditioning, the Puyptors, a stereo system and pedals with a positive or negative symbol (aww) have.
It is considered as a rear gate, the EV mini can sit at four people and an electric motor Singular insertion of 13 kW of 17.4 hp and pair of feet of 62.7 pounds. Sufficient grunts to offer a maximum speed of 62 mph and an estimated area of 106 miles.
To be honest, if you live in a mega metropolis, what does more than one compact electric car need? It is not surprising that the Wuling Hong Guang Mini EV is a success. It offers all the car you need for an urban environment at a reasonable price with zero emissions and a low maintenance.
According to the GM authority, hope is to sell this vehicle abroad, finally. Surely it assumed that Europe will see this car in front of North America. The US market for a micro electric vehicle begins to drip the last entry, Kandi America M23, which was published in Texas in August.
However, Hong Guang Mini EV is sweet as a button. It looks like a yoke, which was represented by an anime creator, who somehow fled the real world.
