Affordable electric urban car from Chinese BYD

BYD continues strongly to extend in electric cars and the last creation is an affordable electric urban car with name e1. It is a small electric car with impressive exterior appearance and good technical characteristics. Its great advantage is its price where after subsidies ranges from 59,900-79,900 yuan ($8.450-$11.270)

BYD E1 is equipped with a large enough battery 32.2 kWh, which should be good for up to 305 kilometers (190 miles) on a single charge. The 45 kW electric motor is one of the smallest in EVS, but provided it does not exceed 50 km/h (31 mph) in the city centers, it should reasonably adequately cover the requirements.
