Chinese manufacturer Wuling has introduced the cheapest electric vehicle models in Vietnam.

The newly-launched mini electric vehicle models were launched Thursday for prices starting at VND239 million ($10,139).

The Wuling Hongguang Mini EV, which is assembled in Vietnam’s northern province of Hung Yen, is one of the smallest electric vehicles in the country.

The four-seater, designed for urban transportation, can drive for 120-170 kilometers per charge, depending on the battery that users purchase. It takes 6.5-9 hours to fully charge a battery.

The car has a maximum designed speed of 100 kilometers per hour.

The inexpensive vehicle has one seven-inch screen for the driver to monitor the car.

Dealers are set to receive the cars starting this September.
