The Hong Guang Mini EV edged out Tesla’s Model 3 as the top-selling electric vehicle in the world in January and February, not a small feat for the relatively new hatchback. More than 36,000 of the tiny cars sold in January, compared to about 21,500 Model 3s, and the Hong Guang sold just over 20,000 units last month, compared to just under 13,700 Tesla 3s.
The Hong Guang Mini EV sells in China only for 28,800 yuan, or about $4,500. It claims to get 170 kilometres (roughly 106 miles) per charge, and can reach a top speed of 100 kilometres per hour or 62 miles per hour (so no drag racing in this thing).
That is perfectly usable as a general commuter vehicle for most people in crowded cities. It is still only sold in China, but It will probably come to most markets eventually, except the USA.
