In April, the company said it would build a convertible version, the Mini EV Cabrio, based on the current model.

According to pictures shared by Weibo user @Cars01 on Monday, the model is already undergoing road tests, except that the body is covered in camouflage.

The model is expected to be officially launched in 2022, according to the blogger.

On September 29, Wuling announced its first two-seat new energy model at the Tianjin Motor Show, called Wuling NanoEV. The model is limited to 5,000 units and is priced at RMB 59,800.
