A brand new electric car is on sale for £3,700 and comes with a digital screen inside.

You can even have it as a convertible, but there is a catch to this minuscule motor.

That’s the fact that it’s made by Wuling in China and isn’t currently planned to be sold in Britain.

It’s also not the most practical car – there are four seats, but two doors and you’ll have to be very short to feel comfy in the back.

It’s called the Wuling Mini EV and you’ll need to fork out more than £3,700 if you want the open-top version.

The Mini EV is less than three metres long and only has 29hp but, being so light, can travel up to a respectable 170km on a full charge.

That said, its top speed is only 62mph.

Wuling reckons that if you fold down the rear seats of the solid-roof Mini EV, it has 741 litres of boot space.

It says that’s enough for ‘two 26-inch suitcases or a stroller,’ and you’ll find 12 storage cubbies inside.

The interior is basic, but you do get a screen for a set of digital driver’s dials which is surprising given the price and you can control the car’s charging with an app.

TikTok sensation @justinbuildcars took the convertible Mini EV for a drive and it looks hilariously small on the road.

While there was plenty of love for the Mini EV, not everybody was convinced.

One said: “I feel like I would wear this as a shoe.”

While another said: “I would be scared to drive it on the highway 😂😂. I prefer to keep my 23-year-old car for now.”

Another joked: “It would take like literally three to four people to pick up this car and walk away with it.”

The Mini EV also comes with a fixed roof and costs from just £3,700
