200Km range+rugged off-road style


published in

On the evening of September 15th, the Geely Panda Mini added a new model – the Panda Knight. Compared to previous models, this car will appear more rugged, which can be considered as a manifestation of its originally rugged off-road style. Not only that, this Panda Rider also has a pure electric range of 200 kilometers, as well as a DC fast charging interface, and also offers a limited time flash purchase price of 49900 yuan. So, let’s take a closer look at the different product features that Panda Rider brings.

Firstly, from the perspective of the powertrain of the Panda Knight, the new car, like other 200 kilometer endurance versions of the Panda Mini, uses a 30kW (41Ps) horsepower drive motor, which is also a common power layout in the micro car market, allowing this “Knight” to have a top speed of 100km/h. In addition, in terms of pure electric range, Panda Knight is also equipped with a lithium iron phosphate battery provided by Guoxuan High Tech, with a battery pack capacity of 17.03kWh and a pure electric range of 200km, supporting DC fast charging.

It is also worth mentioning that after all, this is only a micro scooter with a cost of around 50000 yuan, and there are still some restrictions on the materials used, so driving it will not bring you too excellent comfort. But fortunately, the overall chassis performance is quite good, and it doesn’t give you a loose feeling. Driving it will be more like a more authentic four wheel “small car”.

Secondly, let’s take a look at the exterior design of the Panda Knight. In fact, since the launch of the Panda Mini, its exterior design has made me feel that it belongs to the micro car market as a “tough SUV”. I didn’t expect it to actually launch a Knight version with a tough off-road kit. So it is not difficult to see from the picture that the new car mainly targets the grille area of the front face, as well as the front bumper and both sides of the front hood, which are decorated enough to highlight the “tough” decoration. In addition, the iconic round hole headlights on both sides give it a bit of a tough off-road flavor.

From the side of the car, the Panda Knight not only has more “wild” side stairs than the regular version, but also has a roof luggage rack and new aluminum alloy wheels, making the new car’s side look a bit tough and adding a sense of luxury. In addition, in terms of size, the Panda Knight’s length, width, and height are also more outstanding than the regular version, such as the new car’s length reaching 3135 (old model 3065mm), width reaching 1565 (old model 1522mm), and height reaching 1655 (old model 1600/1610mm). As for the wheelbase of the car body, the Panda Rider still maintains it at 2015mm.

In addition, the rear bumper of the Panda Rider has also undergone a similar treatment, and the rear end of the car is also equipped with a design similar to a spoiler. However, in order to maintain the positioning of the “tough off-road” style, the Panda Knight did not provide an unopened panoramic sunroof, so compared to the Panda Mini with a sunroof, the interior of the new car will be more oppressive.

After finally arriving in the car, the Panda Knight offered two personalized color options: white and green, and was also equipped with faux leather seats, which improved comfort to a certain extent. In addition, the Panda Rider also comes standard with basic reverse camera function, as well as remote start function and voice control system.


From small to micro cars to large to medium-sized SUVs, it can be seen that the design of the tough style has become a trend in the entire vehicle market. After the launch of the Knight Edition, the Panda Mini provides better choices for users who pursue personalized travel experiences. At the same time, compared to the previous 200 kilometer range version models, the new car not only has a more personalized and fashionable appearance, but also comes with aluminum alloy wheels, As well as interior materials with relatively better texture, coupled with limited time discount welfare prices, it is indeed difficult for people not to choose them.

However, the consumer groups I am referring to are those who prioritize range and have decided to choose the Panda Mini. Of course, even if I haven’t figured out which mini car to choose as a scooter yet, I think relying solely on the appearance of the Panda Rider will still attract the attention of many potential consumers. So, in the end, if it were you, would you choose the Panda Rider? Welcome to leave a message in the comments section.
