At the beginning of 2021, Tesla Model 3 lost its leadership among the best-selling electric vehicles in the world. In this ranking, it had to give way to the small Chinese hatchback Wuling Hong Guang Mini EV, which in just a few months managed to gather a whole army of loyal fans in its homeland.
Now how did that happen? We will tell in this review!
Sales began in July 2020 and withing the first twenty days the Mini EV manufacturer received 15,000 orders. For six months, this number increased eightfold and amounted to 120,000 cars. And according to the results during the first two months of 2021, the Chinese baby became the best-selling electric car in the world, leaving behind the permanent leader Tesla Model 3.
Such impressive sales dynamics were made possible by the unprecedentedly low price of this electric car: just over $4,200 in the basic version and about $5.5 thousand in the improved configuration. For comparison, the price of the Tesla Model 3 in the domestic car market in China is about $42,000, which is 10 times more expensive than the Mini EV.

  1. Why do you sound like such a twit? The annoying passive aggressive attitude? I guess that's just how you are.

    At this low price, this vehicle offers a great platform for urban transportation in all developing nations, you know, places where most of the people live in the world? Would you "dare to buy such"? Yes, you insolent twit and so will millions of people around the world.

  2. I wonder if there's bigger model ie. 5 door version of the Wuling Huangguang Mini EV? Now there's a Mitsubishi EK X EV / Nissan Sakura which have lot more rear leg room and bigger boot/trunk space which can be adjusted.

  3. I think this little automobile is remarkable. It's a little bit humorous and yeah it seems quite simple maybe it doesn't have a very high top speed or maybe dynamic range. Although if you look at other countries and other areas like the Fiat 500 or in France with I think it's the CV2. This woolen car is actually quite nice and it even has air conditioning the Fiat 500 I think had very limited things along with the French CB2 and they kept those cars around until almost the 70s. This car although it would be nice for it to be just a tiny bit bigger maybe a 200 MI range and maybe a little bit more horsepower like 30 or 50 horsepower seems actually quite remarkable. Not only that it seems actually affordable who in the world wants to play something like $40 to 100 000 for any car or any type of car with their gas or electric anyway

  4. I want one for Latin America but prefer it to be gas. When the US stops throwing chemtrails in our cities I will turn to the electric version, not before

  5. I live in Australia and this car would suit me because where I live is one place shopping. That is a large shopping center, surrounded by every business you could imagine. Only a couple of minutes drive from one shop to the other.
