Introducing another Chinese car company you never heard before: Kandi (康迪). It used to be a small company under Geely group producing cheap small “cars”, like this one:

Kandi K10

That's all I know now, they didn't provide more details about these two EVs. Kandi will launch these two EVs on August 18th at 10 am CST (4 pm UTC). And it will be a virtual launch. And they say if you pre-order, they will provide a refundable $100 down. So here comes the question. Would you buy one?

    • You are forgetting this is the American market we are talking about here. The short range one just doesn’t have enough range to sell no matter the price. The long range one is brushing up on the price of other established EVs in the American...
