Deepal SL03 Price in Nepal and Availability

Talking about the pricing, the Deepal SL03 price in Nepal will be on the premium side. It is priced around US$25000 to US$30000 in the international market.

Interestingly enough, it is supposed a good alternative to the Tesla Model 3.

Since Nepal is an SUV-dominated market, Changan Nepal will likely introduce the 515KM range option. Moreover, the company could opt for a 160kW Motor instead of a 190kW Motor.

This is pure speculation on my part. Nevertheless, we will know full details upon its official launch.

According to Changan Nepal, the company is already planning to introduce the Deepal SL03 in Q1 of 2024.

We will continue to update this article as new details come to light.
