It ain’t cheap and neither is it a car

Getting an affordable electric car is still the main objective of those who want something as simple as possible without a combustion engine. In spite of everything, you have to be careful when choosing a car, because worrying about getting something as cheap as possible, we can make a serious mistake.

what can happen to us Chang Lee S1 Pro, a small electric car manufactured by Changzhou Xili Car Industry and imported from China, is causing a sensation in Mexico once it went viral on social networks. In videos and publications we can see all its features: it’s small, it’s electric and it’s very cheap.

Specifically, it is easy to find this vehicle for a fork between 20,000 and 27,000 pesos. Mercado Libre, for example, has options on both ends (20,443 and 27,389 pesos). On Alibaba, it costs between 23,845 and 23,991 pesos, depending on who sells it.

As we can see, they are not the usual channels we might expect to buy a new car from. and that is chang li s1 pro does not have a official distribution network in country. To get hold of one, you’ll need to buy it from one of the vendors listed above… and assemble it with your own hands when you get home. A formula that has already been tested for very small cars.

It’s not as cheap as it sounds and with one big problem

The problem for the potential buyer of this vehicle is that, as our colleagues at Xataka México point out, customs costs must be added to the cost of sale upon entry into the country. it means between a 30 and 60% About 12,000 additional pesos to the value of the vehicle in the worst case.

To this should be added the cost of registration. An additional cost, however, it would not be necessary to pay, as this small vehicle does not comply with NOM-194 and 195 regulations. i.e., the vehicle cannot circulate on Mexican roads, as it does not meet the minimum requirements to carry tuition.

refers to these requirements obligations That all new cars must meet in terms of safety, both in equipment with ABS or airbags and structurally, as defined minimum requirements to be met in the use of steel and iron for automobiles.

Electric Cars Apply Brakes Without Stepping On The Brake Pedal.  Time To Rethink Taillights

Therefore, Mexicans will not see on the streets an electric car that will never cease to amaze. Its electric autonomy is, according to the manufacturer, between 50 and 70 kilometers, although it is very likely that these figures refer to Chinese approval cycles and in actual driving conditions they are capable of less.

To reach these kilometres, it has a 60V battery which is recharged with the included 110v charger. To enjoy its full autonomy, it is necessary to leave the vehicle plugged in for between four and eight hours. Also, available kilometers, to take care of the car does not exceed 30 km/h,

As for the rest of the specifications, the Chang Li S1 Pro measures 2.35 meters in height, 1.60 meters in length and 1.20 meters in width. Its cabin has room for up to four people, although ideally no more than three passengers.
