Chinese brand Avatr has just revealed what could be a contender for the cutest electric car of all time. The new Lumin Corn has been designed specifically to compete in the Chinese domestic market where tiny electric cars are huge business.
Set to launch later this year, the Lumin Corn is available with two battery pack options; 12.9kWh and 17.6kWh and will have estimated ranges of 96 miles and 130 miles respectively. Avatr plans to introduce a larger 28kWh pack with 187 miles of range at a later date. Power is a modest 40bhp while charging can only be carried out by an AC connection. It’s unclear as to whether the Lumin Corn can be adapted for DC rapid charging, but given the size of the batteries and the fact that the car will be used for short journeys, this seems unlikely.
In terms of dimensions, the Lumin Corn is 3.27 metres long, 1.7 metres wide and 1.55 metres tall with a wheelbase of 1.98 metres. Inside, Avatr claims that there is space for four adults, although this would appear to come at the expense of boot space, which measures just 104 litres. The interior seems remarkably well appointed given its price point, with two digital displays, a multi-function steering wheel and electric windows.
