As we reported earlier, Fengguang MINI EV is a rebadged DFSK Sokon Candy. DFSK (Dongfeng Sokon Automobile) is not a very known brand as it focuses mainly on affordable commercial vehicles. That is probably why Dongfeng decided to launch Candy under a more familiar Fengguang brand.

As another micro electric vehicle market product, the new car will become its main competitor with Chery QQ Ice Cream and its namesake, the Wuling Hongguang MINI EV.

The black trim sets off the center part of the headlight. The car’s wheel eyebrow has an outward protruding shape design which can naturally improve enhance the sense of movement.

In addition, a new LOGO is adopted at the charging interface, which uses floating points to form the letter “E” to show the characteristics of its pure electric brand.

  1. 1) Note how no Western journalists ever actually criticise Western carmakers for refusing to offer any 4-seater EVs priced below $20,000 let alone below $10,000. And likewise all journalists reporting the launch of this Fengguang 4-seat EV fail to actually mention the fact that it’s only available in China(ie. the same old story).
    2) And similarly no journalists ever criticise the West’s carmakers for collectively pushing in the polar opposite price direction – serving up ever more expensive($45,000+), elaborate, lush and plush EVs for the already pampered-to-death affluent or wealthy 20%-25% of the population.
    And it is primarily because of this lamentable lack of criticism from our media and politicians that our carmakers feel little pressure if any to change course or to offer a wide choice of 4/5-seater EVs at every price-point as is the case in China.
    No – instead we’re constantly told by our compliant, complicit or clueless media and politicians that it’s an apparently permanent lack of charge-points that’s preventing a full-blown EV revolution from happening everywhere except China and high-income Norway.
