MG Motor plans to offer a version of the Wuling Mini EV in India called MG 320 for a shockingly low price of about US$13,000

Electrive reports the MG E230 will have a 20 kWh battery pack and a range of 150 kilometers. The car will likely be less than 3 meters long, with sales beginning in early 2023. The Wuling Mini EV offers two battery sizes — 9.3 kWh and 13.9 kWh. It is expected to come equipped with ABS, rear parking sensors, an advanced driver assistance system, automatic parking, voice commands, and dual front airbags. Over-the-air updates will also be part of the package, Cartoq says. There are no photos of the MG E230 yet, but expect it to look very similar to the Baojun E300 Plus shown above.

It certainly seems to tick all the boxes for an inner city commuter vehicle. But the deciding factor may also be its stop speed, which is not specified. One hopes it is at least 80 km/h or better still 90 km/h.

I, for one, would certainly like to have one of these for day-to-day less than 100 km range urban commuting.
