With the official introduction of Changan Lumin Corn, China’s ultra-mini electric vehicle (EV) industry has gained another powerful competitor. The tiny electric vehicle first appeared on our screens in April 2022, generating a lot of interest from both potential purchasers and enthusiasts.
Changan and CATL collaborated on the development of Lumin Corn, a battery-electric city automobile. The tiny EV competes with the Wuling Honguang Mini EV, Chery QQ Ice Cream, and other comparable cars under Changan’s Avatr Technology Marque.
The base model comes with a 12.92 kWh lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery with a range of 155 kilometres. The mid-range model has a 17.65 kWh LFP battery and a range of 210 kilometres, while the top-end model has a 27.99 kWh LFP battery and a 301-kilometer range.
All variations have a top speed of 101 km/h and produce 41 horsepower (hp).
Changan Lumin Corn Features
Lumin Corn has a number of unique and beneficial properties. It boasts a floating 10.25-inch touch screen with navigation, phone, audio, radio, and self-driving capabilities. It also has hazard lights, an engine start/stop button, climate control, a USB port, and a 12-volt socket.
Lumin Corn’s outer profile is rounded and smooth, unlike Wuling Mini EV’s. It boasts round headlights and taillights, as well as smooth bumpers, giving it a subtle but pleasing appearance.
Although not the most technologically advanced vehicle, the Lumin Corn has all of the essential elements of a tiny economic vehicle.

The base model is priced at 48,900 RMB (Rs. 1.48 Million). The mid-range model costs RMB 53,900 (about Rs. 1.63 million), while the top-of-the-line model costs RMB 69,800. (Rs. 2.12 million).
In terms of price and functionality, the Lumin Corn is a cut above the Wuling small EV. It was just released in China, where compact electric vehicles are in hot demand. It will first be available solely in China’s fast increasing EV market before being made available worldwide.
