The Chinese electric car market is progressing by leaps and bounds in terms of implementation, and it is doing so hand-in-hand with a wider offering. Among them are low-cost models, the last representative of which has already achieved sales success in its first month. Wuling Bingo, which does so with a far more complete offer than ever before.
As we remember, the Willing Bingo It’s a compact 3.95-metre-long, with five doors and space for four occupants, powered by an engine that may vary depending on the variant. 30 or 50 kW Which takes you to a top speed of 100 km/h.
The battery for its part also has two options, both using LFP chemistry, with two capacities. one of 17.3 kWh and 203 km CLTC and a second that reaches 31.9 kWh that provide an autonomy 333 km CLTC. A model whose price starts at 58,800 yuan, 7,700 Euro to replace for the most accessible version, up to 83,800 yuan for the most expensive, 11,000 Euros to replace.
An offer that has convinced Chinese customers, managed to register a total last April 16,383 units, Quite a milestone for a new model.
And it is that Bingo has everything a customer looking for a low cost model could have. In addition, as is evident from the implied price, and a configuration that suits all budgets, it has an attractive design, a very complete interior, and even details like the trunk area capable of becoming a bed .
With the rear seats folded down, cargo space stands at 790 litres, and also has an optional inflatable mattress In the back which we can use to take a nap while camping or while touring.
A new example of how fast the supply of electric cars is progressing in China has come to the fore. A market that continues unabated in its transition to electric mobility based on a variety of offerings including large SUVs, sedans, but also compact and low-cost urban vehicles.
The latter is a segment where competition is becoming very important, with the arrival a few weeks ago of the BYD Seagull, which will undoubtedly be a serious rival in this bingo … or an interesting complement to replacing cars with combustion engines.
