DFSK Launches Affordable Electric Mini SUV

China continues to challenge the notion that suggests “electric vehicles (EVs) can never be cheap” by launching decently equipped budget EVs.

In a recent development, DFSK has launched a cheap, fully electric mini-SUV called EX1 Pro. It is an A-segment EV that rivals Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and other similar SUVs.

The new SUV has features such as a multi-functional screen, passenger and driver airbags, DFSK’s latest multimedia unit, voice recognition, smartphone connectivity, an intelligent navigation system, ABS brakes with EBD and BA technology, parking sensors, and other driver assistance features.

The SUV has a 33 kW electric motor that sends 45 horsepower to the front wheels. It has a 27.17 kWh ternary lithium battery pack that allows for a maximum range of 331 kilometers.

The SUV’s length, width, and height are 3,732, 1,579, and 1,515 mm respectively, while the wheelbase is 2,423 mm. Although the exact weight is unknown, the EX1 Pro should be a lightweight SUV, given its tiny stature.

EX1 Pro has six different trim levels. The lowest variant starts at $7,800 (Rs. 1.8 million) while the range-topping variant costs $8,800 (Rs. 2 million).

This price makes DFSK EX1 Pro a genuinely cheap EV with a decent driving range and features. Sadly, the automaker has shared no plans to launch it internationally. However, it is safe to say that, if it goes on sale internationally, EX1 Pro will become a smash hit.

  • Local market of Pakistan is captured by 3 well know companies who never want to provide space for new manufacturing company with reduced price which impact their profitability of these giant’s either people’s of Pakistan had no rights to select their own choice like SBP impose ban on imported vehicales for leasing on local banks this policy implementation with the intention of saving parity exchange but another side this policy bonafide to that giants also

  • DFSK in Pakistan i.e. Glory is so far a just OK stuff. The price tag is relatively fine. At present majority of it’s service centers and maintenance workshops are owned by the dealers who have little experience to handle the technology. The problem is probably aggregated due to the Company owners have made no serious efforts so far to train and moblise an effective mechanical support system. Management probably requires singleness in decision making related to quality and post sales measures. Cosmetically the paint quality and interior material especially the plastic requires better composition.
    Mechanically the high fuel consumption, brakes maintenance and transmission delays even in medium speed of 80/100 km per hour are the few outcomes of this grey aspect of weak support i.e. workshops staff is found lacking.
    A serious effort is must or ppl will look for other alternatives.
    Correspondingly in my reckoning the EV of DFSK with the current situation is beyond Company capabilities.
    Let’s hope!
