The first Made-in-China mini electric cars have been introduced to Vietnam by a company in Hai Phong City, but local authorities have warned people not to buy the vehicle.

There have been advertisements on Facebook about the mini cars which are priced at just VND40 million (USD1,739).

According to the trader’s introduction, the car is equipped with back LCD camera and a 1,000 Watt electric engine.

The cars are introduced to have average speed of 45 kilometre per hour, and can carry two persons. They are said to be easily operated and drivers do not need to obtain a driving licence.

The Ministry of Transport, however, warned local people not to buy Made-in-China mini electric cars for they were illegally imported and have not been registered for technical inspection.

“It is illegal to use this car in Vietnam and drivers will face fines if found running on local streets,” the ministry said.
