Electric vehicles have been revolutionizing the automotive industry, and Wuling Motors, a renowned Chinese manufacturer, is at the forefront of this green mobility revolution. The brand’s most famous electric car, the Wuling Air EV, has gained widespread popularity in Indonesia. However, Wuling Motors has an impressive lineup of electrified models, and their latest addition, the Baojun Yunduo 2023, is set to make waves in the electric vehicle market.
Scheduled for release in China on August 10, 2023, the Baojun Yunduo is the freshest entry into the world of EVs from the SAIC-GM-Wuling group. This futuristic electric vehicle is specifically designed to be a formidable rival to the widely acclaimed BYD Dolphin, making it an exciting contender in the electric car landscape.
A Legacy of Electrification: Baojun and Wuling
Before diving into the marvel of the Baojun Yunduo, it’s essential to understand the connection between Baojun and Wuling. Both brands belong to the same automotive group, and Baojun’s electric cars are often marketed under the Wuling brand. For instance, the popular Baojun E200 is rebadged as the Wuling Nano EV in some markets, showcasing the synergy between the two brands.
Unveiling the Baojun Yunduo 2023
With the Baojun Yunduo, Wuling Motors aims to bring a fresh breath of innovation and sustainable mobility to the market. The new model will come in four variants: 360 Plus, 360 Pro, 460 Pro, and 460 Max, each offering unique features to cater to diverse consumer preferences.
The price range of the Baojun Yunduo is estimated to start from 100,000 yuan (approximately Rp212 million). It’s appealing for those looking to embrace electric mobility without breaking the bank.
Empowered by Advanced Battery Technology
Powering the Baojun Yunduo are advanced batteries that come in two options. The first is a 37.9 kWh battery, boasting an impressive range of 360 kilometers. For those seeking an even greater driving range, the second option is a 50.6 kWh battery, which extends the range up to an impressive 460 kilometers.
One of the standout features of the Baojun Yunduo is its charging capabilities. In addition to supporting a regular 220 V charger, this electric marvel boasts fast-charging capabilities, allowing it to recharge from 30% to 80% in just 30 minutes. This quick-charging feature ensures that drivers spend less time waiting and more time on the road.

Interestingly, the Baojun Yunduo’s body length is about 100 mm shorter than the popular Toyota Avanza, making it a compelling option for urban dwellers seeking convenience without compromising space.
