With the power potential of the motor, this EV can go up to a top speed of 100 km/h.
Wuling mini EV Battery, Range, and Performance
Since the Mini EV is equipped with such a strong mid-power generating motor, this EV needs to be powered with a good power capacity battery, for which this EV comes with 9.2kWh and 13.8 kWh lithium-ion batteries.
This EV has two battery options, it has different ranges due to the use of different types of batteries, 9.2kWh which gives 120km on a single charge, and 13.8kWh gives 170kWh on a single charge.
This Electric Hatchback model is based on the NEDC driving cycle for suitable energy consumption of about 8.1kWh every 100 km and its current 2022 model will have a much higher power generation capacity of 40 hp with a compatible battery of 26.5kWh which will generate around 200km of range on a single charge.
