The mini electric car will be offered with either a 30 kW or a 50 kW motor–which can provide a range of up to 300 km.

Get to know more about the EV ahead of its launch in Nepal.

Design and features

The Wuling Air EV is based on the Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform, which has been developed under an SAIC-GM-Wuling partnership. The three-door hatchback will be offered in two different lengths. The model with a long wheelbase will be a four-seater EV that measures 2974 mm long. And the one with a short wheelbase will be 2599 mm long and will accommodate two persons. Both models will have the same width and height–1505 mm and 1631 mm, respectively.

The Air EV gets a minimalistic design. The hatchback’s front fascia features parallel headlights and a horizontal chrome bar, which further extends to the side-mirrors. The EV will be offered in five colour options: blue, green, pink, white, and yellow. 

The electric hatchback might come with notable features such as an AC, heater, steering wheel with control buttons, digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, and 50:50 split rear seats, depending on the variant.

Battery and specifications

As is the case in the global market, the Wuling Air EV might be offered with two lithium-battery options: with a capacity of 18 kWh and 27 kWh. The rear-wheel drive vehicle will come with either a 30 kW (40 hp) or a 50 kW ( 67 hp) permanent magnet motor. The EV can speed up to 100 kmph, and the top-spec model is expected to provide a maximum range of 300 km.
