Mini electric cars would be of particular interest, since their prices did not differ much from those of conventional petrol engines. In Europe there are no such options, but not in the ‘paradise’ of electric cars, China. Mini electric car models in China are available there at very low prices, making them attractive and accessible to the buying public.
Many are the Chinese start-ups that are trying to get a share in the revolution of electromobility with many types of vehicles that have quite affordable prices. The Chinese obviously want to lead in this market but the big question that arises here is whether and how many of the new manufacturers will be able to cope with the fierce competition that is now happening in China.
