Overview edit

Following the Hongguang Mini EV electric microcar, Wuling expanded its range of city cars with a conventional 5-door hatchback called the Binguo.

The Binguo was created for the Chinese domestic market, as a response to other urban electric models.[4] It features retro-inspired styling, distinguished by a round body with oval headlights and rear lamps. The body comes in four colors, three with a contrasting painted roof: white and black, green and black or pink and white, as well as fully black.[5]

The passenger compartment features a similar round-oval design. The dashboard features two displays that function respectively as clocks and the central touch screen of the multimedia system.[6]

Specifications edit

The Binguo is available with two powertrain variants. The basic version develops 30 kW (40 hp; 41 PS), while the more powerful 50 kW (67 hp; 68 PS), although the top speed of both is limited to 100 km/h (62 mph). The manufacturer has also provided two available sets of batteries: the smaller 17.3 kWh allows the user to drive up to 203 km (126 mi) on a single charge according to the NEDC cycle, and the larger 31.9 kWh up to 333 km (207 mi).[7]

In September 2023, Wuling released the 410 km (255 mi) range version of the Binguo, powered by a 37.9 kWh LFP battery.[8]
