Details emerge for the Wuling Bingo Plus on launch day

Wuling, the SAIC-GM-Wuling (SGMW) joint venture officially launched the Bingo Plus today, March 6th. The Bingo Plus is competitively priced electric SUV with an impressive range (for the price), a large interior, and several advanced safety features. With two available variants, the flagship edition offers a range of 401km, while the higher-end flagship edition boasts an impressive range of 510km. The prices for these variants are set at 89,800 yuan (12,500 USD) and 98,800 yuan (13,700 USD), respectively. This price point is well below estimates when the Bingo Plus was first introduced on January 12th and is indicative of the ongoing price-war happening in the EV sector in China.

Since its launch, the Bingo has gained significant traction in the market, with Wuling reporting sales figures already surpassing 250,000 units. Wuling identified the growing demand for electric vehicles with extended range capabilities, as well as the need for ample space and better performance. In response, the company developed the Bingo Plus, which addresses these requirements head-on.

Inside the Bingo Plus showcases minimalist design. The cabin offers two interior color choices: Air Green and Warm Sand White. The seats, enveloped in faux suede, can be independently folded in a 5/5 split configuration to accommodate various passenger and cargo needs.

The Bingo Plus has a fairly roomy interior thanks to Wuling’s wide native electric spatial architecture. With 2,610 mm long wheelbase and rear seat legroom of 912 mm.

To further entice customers, Wuling is offering various incentives for those who order the Bingo Plus through its online channels.
