The microcar called Mini EV, which GM offers in China through its partner Wuling is very popular because of its low price. Now the Mini EV is en route to Europe – as FreZe Nikrob EV via the Latvian company Dartz Motorz at a starting price of 9,999 euros.
Dartz says the two-door city car will offer a range of up to 200 km (124 miles) on a charge and seat four. Plus, if they realise the price of less than ten grand, it could easily be the cheapest electric car in Europe (the Twizy quad aside).
In China, the Wuling Mini EV sells for the equivalent of 3,700 euros. There will likely be some adjustments and additional safety features for the EU version leading to a higher price.
Dartz aims for market entry in Germany, Norway and France first and told Carbuzz they wanted to get into rideshare fleets. The US is not yet a priority.
