"The small electric car segment was the best performing class in the Chinese EV market in 2017, accounting for nearly 50% of all EV sales. The Chinese consumer is spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting which small electric car to buy for city use. In 2017 there were 20 A0 class EVs to select from. Consumers in 2018 are in for a treat as many of these models are to get battery upgrades providing electric ranges up to 320km (200 miles)."
Now why can't we get a few small NZ-New EVs for sale in NZ? All we have at the moment is the BMW i3 which isn't exactly an affordable choice for many of us.
The fact that 50% of all EV sales in China is from the small electric car segment shows that small EVs (no longer than say 4 metres) would probably take off here as well.
Perhaps China should export a few of their small EVs to NZ?
