Wuling, the sub-brand under the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture in China, best known for making affordable cars for the masses, launched the Bingo electric hatchback in March of this year. The vehicle has received an overwhelming response in the Chinese market with sales skyrocketing to go past the 80,000 units mark.
In July, the Wuling Bingo broke through the 20,000 barrier for the first time with record sales of 20,064 units. This is an increase of 4.6% from the previous month. Since its launch, the Wuling Bingo has sold an impressive 81,336 units overall with each month witnessing higher sales than the preceding month.
In China, the Wuling Bingo EV is priced from 59,800 yuan which makes it even cheaper than the 660cc Suzuki Alto VXR here. Depending on the variant, the Bingo EV can go from 203 km to up to 333 km on a full charge. Thanks to a fast charger, the Bingo’s battery can be replenished from 30% to 80% in just 35 minutes, making it more attractive to common buyers.
The Wuling Bingo EV is facing stiff competition from BYD’s newly launched Seagull EV, which was launched in late April and posted sales of 23,005 units in June. However, its July sales stats are yet to be released.
