This Chinese EV Is Going To Be A HUGE HIT In Europe

This Chinese EV Is Going To Be A HUGE HIT In Europe

Elliot takes a look at the brilliant (if unfortunately) named Seal from BYD.

With sleek design inside and out, punchy performance and packing some seriously innovative engineering, this looks to be one of the most complete EVs to come out of China this year.

With first deliveries to Europe scheduled for late ’22, could this be one of the first Chinese electric cars to become a smash hit overseas?

Is This £12,000 EV The Bargain Of The Century??

Hot on the heels of his hugely popular review of the standard Wuling Mini EV – China’s cheapest electric car – Elliot takes a look at its slightly posher sibling: the Mini EV Cabrio.

With much improved engineering, top-down driving thrills and a price still less than half that of the cheapest EV you can get in the UK, is this tiny roadster the bargain of the century??
