The range is probably enough for basic needs, but we would expect better efficiency.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed official range and efficiency numbers for the all-electric Kandi K27. The results are in line with the estimations.

The K27 is expected to go 59 miles (95 km), according to the combined rating, but in the city, it should get slightly more range - over 64 mi (103 km).

Anyway, if the Kandi K27 will really enter the market, it will be not only the most affordable EV (especially after the $7,500 federal tax credit and state incentives), but also the one with the lowest range - half of the MINI Cooper SE (110 miles).

The combined energy consumption of the K27 stands at roughly 296 Wh/mi (184 Wh/km), not too efficient compared to what it offers to be honest (barely above Kia Niro EV - 301 Wh/mi).
