Electric Cars

Geely released images today of the Kart Edition of its Panda Mini EV – and this one is definitely for China’s trendy kids.

The newest and third member of Geely’s popular and boxy Panda family, after Panda Mini and Panda Knight that launched in China last year, is the four-seater Kart, and it has a sporty top tail wing that looks like, well, a go-kart. It’s certainly small, at 3150 x 1540 x 1685 mm with a 2015 mm wheelbase, but it can still fit four passengers.

Geely has ramped up the sporty-cute factor on its latest Panda to capture the youth market. It features a black paint base with purple stripey trim and purple-and-white rims. (It’s also available in white and gray.) The round headlights and choice of pink or white interior complete the Kart’s cartoonish feel.

The Panda Kart features a rear-mounted permanent magnet synchronous 30 kW motor and 81.1 lb-ft of torque. Geely hasn’t revealed the battery specs or the range yet, but it supports normal and sport driving modes and is capable of 22kW DC fast charging and 3.3kW AC slow charging.

The interior has plenty to excite young drivers, with an 8-inch central control screen and a 9.2-inch LCD instrument panel. The central control screen supports wireless connection, voice control, navigation, and multimedia entertainment. The car can be remotely opened and locked remotely via a smartphone, and that goes for temperature control, too. The knob between the seats is the shift mechanism.

It may be slightly kooky, but it still sports sensible features such as uphill assist, reversing image with track line, reversing radar, electric power steering, anti-lock brakes, and EBD.

There’s no price on the Panda Mini Go Kart Edition yet, but it will be affordable: The Panda Mini is 39,900 yuan ($5,500), and the Panda Knight is 53,900 yuan ($7,410).
