After making its debut in April, the Changan Lumin Corn mini EV has been finally launched in Chinese market with starting price of 48,900 yuan (PKR 14.73 lac).
The Lumin Corn EV is based on Changan’s EPA0 platform, and measures 3,270 mm long, 1,700 mm wide and 1,545 mm tall with a wheelbase of 1,980 mm. To better understand its size, the Suzuki FX we had here was 3,195 mm long, 1,395 mm wide and 1,335 mm tall with a 2,150 mm wheelbase. So the Lumin Corn is almost similar in length but is much wider and taller than the FX with a bigger wheelbase ensuring a generous space inside.
