Sales figures for the BAIC Beijing EC180 in China.
Beijing Automotive and its confusing array of subsidiaries and (sub-)brands has started yet another venture: BAIC BJEV, which promises to launch an entire range of electric vehicles in the next few years. BAIC owns 60% of the company, and one of the shareholders of the remaining part is LeEco, known from its LeSee electric supercar and its investment in Faraday Future, the American would-be Tesla challenger. The first vehicle of this range is an Electric Citycar with a claimed range of 180 kilometers, appropriately named EC180. The EC180 is powered by a 41hp electric motor getting its juice from a 20.3 kWh battery pack. Charging from a conventional 220V plug will take six to seven hours. The EC180’s size is 3.672/1.630/1.495mm with a wheelbase of 2.360mm and a curb weight of 1.085kg.
The price of the EC180 is 151.800 yuan (€ 20.600,- / US$22,000) before subsidies. Considering its price, the interior of the EC180 is very basic, with lots of hard plastics and no infotainment screen in the center console. A few orange touches are meant to give it a bit of trendiness, but Chinese consumers have come to expect more by now. The EC180’s main competitor is the Chery eQ.
Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
