Spy shots showing the new Geely GLEagle Panda EV, a full-electric vehicle based on the patrol-powered Geely GLEagle Panda sub-compact hatchback. The Panda EV will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September and launch on the China car market in Q4.

The Geely Panda EV will be powered by a surprisingly strong electric motor with 93hp and 226nm. Battery is lithium-ion. Charging on 220V will take six hours, and 35 minutes for an 80% load on a fast-charger. Price of the Geely GLEagle Panda EV will start around 90.000 yuan, but green-car subsidies by central and local governments will bring that down to about 50.000 yuan at the dealer.

  1. 90.000 rmb before the incentives ? I have some doubt… an EV with such powerfull motor and lithium battery could not have such a low cost… But if eventually it could be true , then it will be surely a hit in the EV market. I think that we are now in a transitional time in which the main domestic car maker has understood that to be sucessfull in the EV market need long range and low price. So is there any information about the range and the capacity of the battery pack of this new EV ?

  2. But this one has been around for awhile. Scheduled for launch in late 2009 it has gone by the name EK-1,EK-2 Tobe, and M’car in Taiwan, where reports said it would be assembled by Yulon starting back in 2010.
    The Geely-Kandi joint venture was also said to be putting out the Panda product for its EV project.
    However, it all seems to have remained in the planning stage until now, as the Panda never seems to show up on the tally of China’s EV sales.

  3. Last 2013-3-26 (http://en.kandivehicle.com/NewsDetail.aspx?newsid=47): Kandi and Geely Entered Into Joint Venture Contract to Establish Zhejiang Kandi Electric Vehicles Co, Ltd.; Committed to Create A Reliable, Convenient and Green Transportation System for the City (Hangzhou).

    The above Panda-EV is quite similar to the Kandi-Geely JV co-developed brands: JL7001BEV (lease/own) or K-11 (rental), both have plug-in & QBEX (quick battery exchange) features. Please see: http://kandigroup.com.cn/CarStyle.aspx

  4. Well, if the pricing info is correct and the range would be 120+ km on an 80% charge, i think i just found an even cheaper alternative to my F0. Taking into consideration that i’d get a free shanghai plate …
