Here are the specifications of the Wuling Bingo: The Bingo’s measurements are 3950/1708/1580 mm with a wheelbase of 2560 mm. It will have 2 alternatives, one with a 30 kW (41 hp) motor and another with a 50 kW (68 hp) motor. These alternatives will can be found in a 17.3 kWh and a 31.9 kWh variation with a series of 203 km or 333 km, respectively. It likewise begins at an extremely appealing $8,682 in China. That’s $8,682 for a good 5-door vehicle with a 17.3 kWh battery and a 30 kW (41 hp) motor. Okay.
A great deal of individuals beyond China, and maybe in China too, believed that the Hongguang Mini EV was small, however it is not as little as you would believe The Wuling Bingo is here to resolve the requirements of those customers who would choose a somewhat bigger 5-door compact hatchback that remains in a sector comparable to popular ICE hatchbacks such as the Ford Feast. The Bingo even includes a relatively big boot (trunk) that comes near 790L with the rear seats folded down. It likewise has 2 screens, a 7 â³ cockpit console, and a 10.25 â³ infotainment screen.

So, it appears like SGMW has actually another blockbuster on the cards.
Could there be more excellent news about this Wuling Bingo in the future for individuals outside China?
It appears like it. If we have a look at Wuling’s brand name approach and follow Wuling’s brand name story, cars with the Red Wuling badge are for the regional Chinese market and cars with the Silver Wuling badge are for the worldwide market The Wuling Bingo currently includes the Silver Wuling badge, so we might see it in some markets beyond China quicker instead of later on. In addition, the Wuling Air is currently being put together in Indonesia and is now on sale in India, where it has actually been rebadged as the MG Comet Ideally we will see an “MG Bingo” in India too. If the Bingo gets a right-hand-drive choice soon, I hope it will likewise go to more markets all over the world as rapidly as possible. After a very long time of waiting, we are lastly getting in the age of budget friendly EVs! Amazing times ahead.
