After yesterday’s story lamenting the swollen battery issues I’m having with my Changli, the cheapest new car in the world, just for the hell of it I thought I’d see what Changli prices were like now, and what sort of new models were available. I saw that prices had gone up a bit, but they’re still dirt cheap, and, more importantly, I saw they’re still using pictures of me and my Changli on their Alibaba ordering pages. I’m amused to be the unpaid and seemingly official (?) American face of Changli, even with my current bloated battery woes.
Look at all the screengrabs they’re using from my videos! I love it. Also, I’m pretty sure they thought David and I were a couple at one point. Whatever helps them sell cars! Fine by me.
As you can see, the Changli lineup is pretty vast, and these seem to be just their four-wheeler options; there’s lots of three-wheel ones, too. It looks like mine, the Freeman, has gone up in price to $1,450, but a new $1,291 model is available too with different bodywork and, it seems, lacking the opening rear door. There’s also trucks and even full-sized, real-seeming cars, too, for about $20 grand. I’m really curious about those $10,000 options, too.
I need to get out to the Changli factory and really see what they’ve got going on. This is all just too fascinating.
Well, the two of you are holding hands in that top right photo, so… 😉
Looking forward to Jason’s posting about the electric fire that got him (safely) stranded 100 yds from home
Lord, I was born a Changli man
