Batteries are known to be one of the most expensive components of an electric car, costing around 60 percent of the vehicle price.

The lifetime battery guarantee is given only to buyers of the Wuling Binguo EV variant with a distance of 410 km. It is known that Binguo is available in two variants, including one with a range of 333 km on one battery charge.

Wuling Binguo EV uses a lithium ferro-phosphate battery with a capacity of 31.9 kWH for the 333 km and 37.9 kWh variants with a range of 410 km. The electric motor of Wuling’s new car produces around 50 kW of power or around 67 HP.

Retro style electric car

Wuling Binguo EV was introduced in mid-November. Wuling Motors Vice President, Arif Pramadana Binguo EV appears with a classic retro design, but also modern.

Overall, the Binguo EV adopts a timeless design style combined with modern elements that add a futuristic element to the electric vehicle.
