The E200's stunted dimensions of 2497*1526*1616 mm (L*W*H) make it an ideal city car especially for the crowded metro locations where parking is a big issue. Moreover, its 3.8 metres of turning radius further makes it perfect for congested lots. Also, its cabin has been designed with 11 storage compartments, hooks, armrest and foldable seats for a more practical approach.
The Baojun E200 features list includes 7-Inch colour instrument cluster, LED headlamps, dual-channel speakers and a remote interactive system which offers information on the charging, parking navigation, power supply and vehicle inspection as well. Antilock Brakes (ABS) + Electric Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are the main safety features. Surprisingly, there are no airbags on offer.
