The Wuling Bingo offers a remote-controlled Bluetooth key, an electronic parking brake, automatic parking, and electric 6-way adjustable leather seats. Storage capacity with the seats down is 1,240 liters.

Importantly 333 and 410 km versions get an upgrade with a three-in-one water-cooled flat wire motor, which have stronger heat dissipation capacity. Although peak power remains the same at 50 kW the top speed has increased by 10 km/h to 130 km/h. The 203 km version keeps the previous 30 kW electric motor and continues to have a top speed of 100 km/h.

All versions of the Wuling Bingo now support DC fast charging with a charge from 30-80% taking 35 minutes. Previously, there were versions of the 203 km range car without this. Battery sizes for the three ranges remain at 17.3, 31.9 and 37.9 kWh respectively.
