Garland-based Kandi America, a subsidiary of Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Kandi Technologies Group Inc., acquired SC Autosports of Garland, in 2018 to distribute electric vehicles (EV) in the U.S. Now they have launched one of the most affordable electric EVs on the American market, with an initial focus on the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
Their Auto EVolution For All campaign permits customers to put a refundable $100 deposit down for models K27 and K23, which will be available for delivery later this year. Johnny Tai, CEO of Kandi America, states, “At Kandi, we are on a mission to make electric cars accessible for all.”
Priced at $12,999 after federal tax credits, the K27 is the compact model with ample interior space that can comfortably accommodate up to four passengers. The car features a 17.69 kWh lithium battery and a driving range up to 100 miles, making it a good choice for urban driving. The K23 is $22,499 after federal tax credits. The size of a small SUV, this model includes a 41.4 kWh ternary lithium battery with a driving range of more than 180 miles.
