Between them comes the Nano EV minicar built by Hongguang, a company resulting from a partnership between General Motors e SAIC. In the past, they have dominated the market with the microcar Mini EV, and now they try again but even smaller.

Needless to say, the Nano EV in Hongguang it is steeped in technology. It is indeed present the BMS system for intelligent battery management, as well as the preheating and its insulation to protect it when there are low temperatures. Furthermore, finally, various types of ADAS for safety, such as hill assist control and tire pressure monitoring.
