SGMW, a joint venture between SAIC, GM, and Wuling, officially unveiled the all-new Wuling Bingo EV last February, pulling the sheets on a next-gen all-electric hatchback that SGMW hopes will consolidate the joint venture’s segment sales leadership in the Chinese market. The Wuling Bingo EV slots in above several other all-electric Wuling models released previously. Now, one reviewer is calling the Wuling Bingo EV the best value in all-electric vehicles yet, as seen in the following video.
Recently hitting the net via the Wheelsboy YouTube channel, the video is eight minutes, 20 seconds long, and provides a thorough breakdown of the new Wuling Bingo EV’s exterior, charging, interior, performance, and handling. Offered as a five-door, four-passenger hatch, the Wuling Bingo EV is positioned above the Wuling MINI EV, the Nano EV, and the Air EV minicars. However, as the reviewer points out, “Wuling seems intent on dominating the lower end of the EV market” in China, and as such, pricing is set at a reasonable $8,600 to $12,000.
The exterior presents a series of rounded shapes and gentle curves, with oblong lights and an upright canopy. A total of four exterior paint colors are offered, while a contrasting roof is offered as optional.
Two battery packs are offered, including a 17.3 kWh option and a 31.9 kWh option, the latter of which includes fast-charge capabilities. Output levels range between 40 horsepower and 67 horsepower, while range-per-charge tops out at 207 miles, as certified under the China Light Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC).
Despite the diminutive exterior dimensions, the interior is surprisingly spacious, with 310 liters (10.9 cubic feet) of cargo space behind the rear seats, and 790 liters (27.9 cubic feet) of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Amenities are nice as well, especially with all of the optional equipment onboard, including faux leather seats and voice control. Nearly every trim level includes a seven-inch digital instrument cluster as well.
