* Production and positioning: It will be produced in San Luis, will generate 40 jobs and will go on sale at the end of the year. It will have a sale price of 10 thousand dollars or 720 thousand pesos. It will compete against the Cordovan Volt Motors, which costs twice as much and is already being bought by government agencies.
* Batteries and benefits: Juan Manuel Baretto, president of Coradir, reported that the batteries are being developed in alliance with the Argentine company Probattery. With lead-acid batteries it declares a range of 100 kilometers and a maximum speed of 65 km / h. The battery recharge time is eight hours. It has capacity for four passengers. With lithium batteries that autonomy can be "tripled".
* Design and bodywork: The design was taken from an existing Chinese product. The vehicle parts would be imported from China and the assembly would be done in San Luis. For later, they promise to produce the body parts in kevlar and aluminum material, with the support of a Munro (Buenos Aires) autopartist.
anything from india?You can order LSEVs through Alibaba.com in fair quantities (use the search term "electric automobile adult" and Supplier Location: China), they have a good collection of Levdeos, Lansels and Lichis right now, but be aware of the transaction risks. For the purpose you have stated, you can look at the modern Mokes as well. Remember, large products once delivered cannot be returned. Also find out about customs rules in your country, the taxes to be paid, the kind of permits required to import and operate these kinds of vehicle in the public space (if there are any such permits), local laws of the municipio, the electricity charging infrastructure in the area, and above all, how to service the vehicles if anything goes wrong, and where to get spare parts since there would be no official distributor (although in EVs, fewer parts go wrong than in conventional vehicles)
In general, irrespective of the merits/demerits of the cars themselves, I would discourage importing new brands in the absence of an official distributor (also, they often shut themselves down if sales are not too strong).
Have you looked at Sero Electric from your own country? Here is a recent article. I admit they are not very pretty to look at , neither do they have 4-seater versions.
You may talk to Bajaj Argentina to see if they can import the Qute for you (a non-electric export-only model).
Also, for recreational purposes, you can consider these French vehicles:
Bee Bee XS
Mehari-Loisirs E-Story (article, link)
You may have to contact the companies directly to negotiate, and these vehicles will be a bit more expensive, as would be the Citroen E-Mehari or Bollore Bluesummer.
(I mention these French vehicles as suggestions to forum members/visitors from Europe who may have similar ideas as our friend's friend here)
IT LOOKS SO CUTE I WANNA HUG IT!
