Read this article about this. A cheap mini-pick up truck from China called the Pickman.

SAIC-GM WUILIG HONGGUANG MINI EV

The base model would probably do my Mrs for work and would probably only need a charge once a week :-D

jUst watched video this on the Mini-e. Pleased to see that it is indeed being made in the UK at the Cowley Factory.

So that's the Nissan Leaf, the Mini E and the London Electric Vehicle Company's Black Cab in Coventry UK Made

The list needs to grow considerably.

The logo looks a little like you could mistake it for Citroen's but no this is NIO, bit of an upcoming TESLA rival from China, and heading for Europe.

and I have purposely started this video at another citroen-esque point. The air suspension sits down at rest :-D

Not your normal EV, $100 Million in Orders & a 1 million view Video :-D



This helps illustrate their claims

The top selling EV's globally in 2020.

The first mass produced EV Tesla Model 3 way out in front. Although in particular the Renault Zoe , and to a lesser extent, the Nissan Leaf sell in reasonable numbers, how quickly have both been overtaken in spite of their relatively long ev history. Lack of ambition to expand production and sell, and develop new EV models has held Renault and Nissan back in recent times.

There have been a couple of examples of "fun" vehicles the little pick up, and the little jeep. Then there's the new Citroen Ami. Well the "original" Renault Twizy, can be found in use on some of Europe's most challenging roads.

Came across this as an aside when in Geiranger this morning, one of the most beautiful destinations in the Norway's Fjord region.

There is a whole fleet of them to hire to visit the many spectacular sites and viewpoints around the area.

MG5 EV from the horses mouth. I have seen less wooden presentations, and with much louder accompanying music (there is none some will be pleased to know).

Local dealer has recently taken them into their stable.
