This Mini EV Is So Cute You Want To Pinch Its Square Little Cheeks03/26/2020
It’s a China-only electric city car made by the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture.
Most mini EVs built in China for the Chinese market quite often so badly designed that it makes us laugh out loud at the mere sight of them. This one, however, looks like a square little puppy on (tiny) wheels, prompting an ‘aww,’ instead of the usual ‘eww.’
It was created by SAIC-GM-Wuling, a joint venture that’s one of the largest manufacturer of microcars in China. This new pint-sized EV has 27 horsepower, it’s rear-wheel drive and has two battery pack options: 9.2 kWh and 13.8 kWh.
Believe it or not, in spite of the fact that it’s just 2.9 meters (114.7 inches) long and rides on a 1.9-meter (75-inch) wheelbase, it’s actually a four-seater. However, we doubt it’s particularly spacious for rear passengers and we also imagine it has little room for cargo.
