Would you buy a Chinese electric sports car for S$60,000?

The SC-01 will boast a range of 500 km on a single charge, with a price tag of S$60,000 (or CNY300,000) overseas


The earnestly and very literally named brand, Small Sports Car (SSC), has launched an electric two-seat sports car that it claims will act as a “national sports car” for China, with a price tag of around CNY300,000 – the equivalent of approximately ​​S$60,000 in Singapore.

It’s a very early product announcement, we certainly wouldn’t bet on this car coming to Singapore. If it did, we estimate it would cost around S$250,000 at least, considering a Toyota Corolla retails for CNY130,000.


Called the SC-01, the small, electric coupé is the company’s first-ever car, measures at 4,085mm long, 1,820mm wide and 1,162mm high and weighs 1,300kg – meaning it’s similar in size to the petrol-engined Alpine A110 and Audi TT.


According to Chinese news site Sohu,and Autocar UK, the SC-01 will feature a pared back interior without an infotainment screen (we approved) and all controls as traditional switches and buttons.

It features a battery positioned behind the cabin, with electric motors at the front and rear producing a total of 429 hp (320 kW), with a 0 to 100km/h time of 3.9 seconds. SSC claims that its electric coupé will be able to travel up to 500km on a single charge on the NEDC cycle.


The company says deliveries of the SC-01 will begin in the fourth quarter of 2023, in China.
