Spotted in China: the Beijing Auto Senova EV200 electric taxi

A brand new Beijing Auto Senova EV200 electric taxi, Spotted in China in the Fengtai District in Beijing. The taxi is based on the sedan version of the Senova EV200 hatchback, which in turn is based on the petrol-powered Senova D20.

The Senova EV200 electric taxi is part of a pilot project consisting of 500 cars that will be put to work in the southern suburbs of Beijing. The project is a continuation of a similar scheme with 200 Beijing Auto E150EV (the predecessor of the EV200) that started last year in the north eastern suburbs.

The new project was announced on the very last day of 2014 but it hasn’t officially started yet. The example I found in Fangzhuang is probably one of the first cars to hit the road.

New Mini driver is a Woman in China

This particular sticker, Spotted in China in a Mini on the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing, adds an interesting detail: (). The character ‘nu’ means ‘woman’. So we got to be extra careful here! I stayed away clear but sometime later I somehow ended up alongside to the right, finding a smiling man on the passenger seat and a visible nervous female behind the wheel. Sadly I couldn’t get a shot at it. Hope they good…
