MAW Vriddhi AutoCorp, the authorized distributor of Changan vehicles in Nepal, is preparing to introduce the Lumin. It is a compact electric car designed for urban mobility.

The launch of the Deepal S07 helped Changan gain significant traction in Nepal’s electric vehicle market. The imminent debut of the Deepal L07 is certain to strengthen Changan’s foothold further.

With the introduction of the Lumin, Changan Nepal is expanding its offerings to cater to a broader range of consumer preferences.

Unlike its predecessors, which were built on the EPA1 platform, the Lumin is constructed on the EPA0 platform.

Both the EPA0 and EPA1 platforms are designed to support electric vehicles. However, the EPA0 platform is specifically developed to produce compact and subcompact vehicles, addressing users’ essential transportation needs, as seen from Lumin.

When discussing competition, the Changan Lumin will directly compete with the MG Comet EV in this segment.

The MG Comet features a 31.26 kW motor, which is smaller than the Lumin’s 35 kW motor. However, the Comet boasts higher torque, producing 110 Nm compared to the Lumin’s 83 Nm.

This difference arises largely due to the Comet’s rear-wheel-drive system, and it also benefits from being around 100 kg lighter than the Lumin.

While both the Lumin and Comet fall within a similar price range, the Lumin is slightly more expensive. Additionally, the Comet offers a ground clearance of 165 mm, which is 15 mm higher than the Lumin’s 150 mm.

That being said, Lumin utilizes a Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery known for its extended lifespan, improved thermal stability, and reduced fire risk. This battery choice, however, contributes to the Lumin’s higher overall weight.

Furthermore, beside these differences, the Lumin stands out due to its wider stance and better overall stability.
