China News Service, Liuzhou, March 3 (Zhou Xiaonan) The global electric vehicle sales data of Gasgoo Motors recently showed that in January 2021, Wuling Hongguang MINIEV sold 36,762 vehicles, setting a new sales record for the seventh consecutive month, and it is the first time to ride. The world's electric car sales crown throne.
This pure electric minicar, launched in July 2020, is a two-door four-seater design, which can basically meet the needs of family mobility.
Products that are driven by market demand and do not rely on new energy subsidies are mainly targeted at third- and fourth-tier cities and rural markets. Their convenience and low prices make them one of the best-selling new energy vehicles in China.
SAIC-GM-Wuling, which has always been the leader in mini vehicles, based on its market judgment, in 2014, together with the Liuzhou Municipal Government, initiated the "Liuzhou Model" for the promotion of small new energy vehicles, and launched two new energy models, Baojun E100 and Baojun E200.

Through the accumulation and data analysis of the "Liuzhou Model", SAIC-GM-Wuling has insight into the difficulties in cognition, charging, and parking problems in the promotion of new energy vehicles, and on this basis, proposed new energy vehicle users' short-distance travel scenarios.
In July 2020, Wuling Hongguang MINIEV, a new energy vehicle, was launched.
The launch of the new energy vehicle has become an explosive model. Within 20 days of its launch, the sales volume has exceeded 15,000 units, setting a record for the world's fastest sales of new energy vehicles and becoming a dark horse in China's new energy vehicle market.
Prior to this, the main production base of Wuling Hongguang MINI was in the Qingdao base of SAIC-GM-Wuling.
With the sale of the car, SAIC-GM-Wuling had to open an assembly line in Liuzhou.
"The most troublesome thing now is that the cars are not enough to sell." SAIC-GM-Wuling related staff said.
As a phenomenal product, Wuling Hongguang MINIEV has completely broken the price system of A00-level electric vehicles. This is the reason why Wuling Hongguang MINIEV can "seal the king" in a short time.
What's more worth mentioning is that in the global sales list of electric vehicles, Chinese self-owned brand models show absolute dominance.
In the top ten list of vehicles, Chinese domestic car brands occupy 7 seats.
Yang Jianlong, deputy director of the Industrial Economic Research Department of the Development Research Center of the State Council, once pointed out that countries around the world have begun to accelerate the pursuit of new energy vehicles, and the development of new energy vehicles is the only way for the development of China's automobile industry.
In the future, China will still start from the three major aspects of market, technology, and environment, focusing on breaking through core technologies, controlling key links in the industry chain, occupying the high end of the value chain, optimizing the industrial development environment, and opening up domestic and overseas markets.
