The world’s most important electric car is launching now

The Renault City K-ZE has just been announced for the Chinese market, where it offers a stunning combination of electric range and low cost.

Starting at 61,800 Yuan, or about $8,700 US Dollars and its 30kWh Tianjin Lishen battery offers a remarkable 250 km or 155 miles of NEDC-rated range.

Even though this ends up resulting in a likely EPA range closer to about 100 miles, the fact that this eminently usable amount of range is available in a useful and well-proven vehicle for under $10,000 is a remarkable achievement.
