The E300 has a synchronous fixed ratio gearbox and rear-engine layout, generating 40 kW of maximum power and 111 ft lb of maximum torque. It has a top speed of 100 km/h and supports DC fast charging, which enables it to be fully charged in one hour.

The E300 is 2,625 millimetres long which makes it 70 mm shorter than a Smart Fortwo. It is available with a choice of two or three seats. The 4-seater E300 Plus is 2,894 millimetres long. Both have a McPherson independent suspension and double wishbone independent suspension design, for a comfortable ride.

They inherit Baojun’s new interstellar geometry design language. Their futuristic-looking two-tone avant-garde split body styling is instantly recognizable and will appeal to younger consumers.

All E300 models have height-adjustable and time-delayed shutdown functional headlights, concealed door handles, sparkling aluminum wheels, a touchscreen multifunction steering wheel and an interior incorporating eco-friendly materials.
