GM China Unveils the New Wuling Bingo EV–And It’s Under $10k!

Here at eveelife, we’re often belaboring how frustrating it is that EVs have not yet been offered at a price point accessible to the masses. Well, if the recently unveiled news about GM’s new Bingo are a trend, that may soon be changing.

Tesla…you may have met your match!

SGMW is a joint venture between SAIC, GM, and Wuling Motors in China. The automaker is best known in the electric world for its best-selling Wuling Hongguag Mini EV, launched in 2020.

After a year on the market, the Wuling Mini EV surpassed Tesla in sales in the region. The automaker has made the most of the Mini EV’s success, launching various options, including the Mini EV convertible and the Wuling Air EV (MG Comet in India), its first international EV.

Yet more encouraging is that other models appear to be coming, including a mini two-door Bronco-looking electric SUV, the Baojun Yep, which is being hailed one of the coolest cars to enter China’s EV market.

Helloooo adorable!

This little nugget is a 4-seater hatchback that’s 12.96 ft long, 5.6 ft wide, and 5.2 ft tall. Although the Wuling Bingo is smaller in size, it makes up for it with its super sporty and versatile interior. The inside features a dual screen divided into a seven-inch instrument panel and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen resembling an entry-level luxury car. The best part? The optional inflatable mattress, which can turn the EV into a mobile camper. We’re drooling!

The only problem? They aren’t in the US! 🙁

Yet, anyway. Regardless, this new announcement gives up hope that fun new models that most anybody can feasibly afford are possible. We’re keeping our eyes and ears open for you, so make sure that you subscribe to our newsletter!
