However, a top-of-the-line version with a range of 408 km will also be available, all according to the Chinese CLTC cycle.

Positioned as a 5-door, 4-seat mini EV, the Yue 01 has compact dimensions of 3.7 meters in length with a wheelbase of 2.4 meters, making it significantly smaller than the Wuling Bingo. Aesthetically, the car features 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a two-tone exterior design.

The interior of the Yue 01 follows a minimalist style, with a color combination that complements the exterior design. The cockpit is dominated by a 10.1-inch central screen, a 7-inch LCD cluster, a flat-bottomed two-spoke steering wheel, and round air vents. The center console is equipped with a rotary gear knob, a base for wireless charging, and two cup holders.

Powertrain

The flagship model offers advanced features such as keyless entry, remote start, remote control, over-the-air updates (OTA), voice recognition, and advanced driving assistance capabilities, including adaptive cruise control and autonomous parking, thanks to two ultrasonic radar sensors.

The entire range is powered by a front electric motor that delivers 35 kW or 48 horsepower and 125 Nm of torque, with a top speed of 100 km/h.

There are two versions of LFP batteries, the first with a 24 kWh capacity and a range of 251 km, and the second with a 32.5 kWh capacity and a range of 335 km, for low consumption of up to 10.3 kWh per 100 km. Charging is also fast, requiring 30 minutes for a 30-80% charge.
