I simply love this vary of small reasonably priced EVs the SGMW JV is rolling out in China. The unique Wuling Hongguang Mini EV gross sales in China are down from the document highs of some years in the past on account of rising competitors within the mini EV section, in addition to the arrival of bigger however nonetheless extra reasonably priced EVs. It’s nonetheless being exported to a couple left-hand drive markets in Asia. The Wuling Air is made in Indonesia and can also be now obtainable in another right-hand drive markets like India and in Kenya the place it is called the Autopax Air EV Yetu. It might be nice to see the Wuling Bingo in addition to the Baojun Cloud additionally being exported to each left-hand drive and right-hand drive markets in massive volumes within the very close to future. These may supply a pathway to wider entry of electrical autos in lots of markets, serving to to catalyze the adoption of EVs around the globe.
