SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture Baojun launched the trendy KiWi city electric vehicle, which has a range of 305 kilometers (189.5 miles).
The KiWi EV inherits Baojun’s new interstellar geometry design language. It adds futuristic-looking two-tone avant-garde split body styling, giving it a distinct and personalized appearance that will appeal to younger consumers.
Six cool exterior colors – Azure, Cream, Rouge, Sable, Emerald and Mint – are available. Each features its own decorative scheme, taking full advantage of the “suspended cab” concept that gives the vehicle its unique look. Depending on the chosen color, the combinations span up to three body tones with contrasting accents on the roof, grille, mirrors, trim and wheels.
The KiWi EV generates 40 kW of maximum power and 150 Nm of maximum torque. It has a top speed of 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) and supports DC fast charging, which enables it to be fully charged in one hour.
The four-seat vehicle is 2,894 mm long, 1,655 mm wide and 1,595 mm high, and has a 2,020-mm wheelbase. It comes with a McPherson independent suspension and double wishbone independent suspension design, for a comfortable ride.
The KiWi EV is equipped with Baojun’s latest telematics 2.0 system. The artificial intelligence voice interaction system, real-time road navigation, voice-controlled WeChat function and mobile app make driving more convenient and enjoyable.
Two variants are priced at RMB 69,800 (10,815 USD) and RMB 78,800 (12,210 USD).
