The automaker revealed the first official images of the all-new Wuling Bingo Plus, a new crossover variant of the Bingo EV first introduced early last year in China as Wuling’s first all-electric five-door vehicle. As such, the new Bingo Plus will arrive to further expand the brand’s extensive lineup of zero-emission models in the Chinese market.
In particular, the all-new Wuling Bingo Plus transforms Wuling’s successful Bingo nameplate into a family of zero-emission vehicles and becomes the second member of the new range following the original hatchback. In addition, the Wuling Bingo Plus also represents the first all-electric crossover in the New Energy Vehicle (NEV) range of GM’s best-selling brand in China – initially composed exclusively of mini cars.
Based on an all-new variant of SGMW’s Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform, the Wuling Bingo Plus introduces a unique body with raised proportions and is larger than that of the original Bingo EV – as its name indicates. Specifically, the Bingo Plus measures 161 inches long (5.5 larger), 67.7 inches wide (0.5 more), and has a wheelbase of 102.8 inches (2 larger). Overall height has yet to be confirmed.
Aesthetically, the Wuling Bingo Plus presents an evolution of the vehicle’s design language with a similar style, but with slightly more muscular shapes and fewer rounded elements that clearly differentiate it from the Bingo hatchback. The front adopts a raised hood and sharp headlights with a new LED lighting signature, while the side profile is marked by a massive rear door and a rising belt line that connects with a higher and more voluminous rear.
The all-new Wuling Bingo Plus will reach the brand’s dealerships in China during the first half of this year, according to the company, which hopes to start mass production shortly. It will be equipped with SGMW’s next-generation electric powertrain composed of a motor generating 75kW or 100 horsepower and a 50.6 kWh battery pack.
