Hozon Neta Aya Full Electric City Car Is Only RM45k In Overseas Markets

With the tax structure in Malaysia, this Hozon Neta Aya will definitely cost triple as much

Neta, a pioneering force in the automotive industry, is steadfast in its commitment to crafting vehicles accessible to all. Its unwavering dedication to research and development in electric vehicle (EV) technology underscores its mission to democratise access to cutting-edge innovations in transportation.


Firmly planted in Thailand, Neta envisions a robust EV ecosystem where 100 percent EVs redefine the standards of innovation, safety, and comfort. The brand integrates state-of-the-art technology into every facet of our vehicles, ensuring that each individual can experience the transformative power of electric mobility.

Moreover, one such embodiment of our vision is the Hozon Neta Aya Full electric city car, a marvel of engineering designed to cater to diverse global markets. Available in both right-hand drive (RHD) and left-hand drive (LHD) configurations, this compact yet powerful vehicle boasts a motor output of either 40 or 55kW, coupled with a high-capacity 31.18kWh battery. 

On top of that, with an impressive electric range spanning 301 to 401km on a single charge, the Hozon Neta Aya offers unparalleled freedom and flexibility for urban commutes and beyond. It also boasts a top speed of 100km/h and accelerates from 0 to 50km/h in 5.3 seconds which delivers a thrilling driving experience without compromising efficiency.


Crafted with precision, the sleek body dimensions of the Hozon Neta Aya exude contemporary elegance, while its availability in five trendy colours allows drivers to express their individuality with flair. Moreover, with a starting price of just USD9,999 (about RM47,522), the car screams affordability in the realm of EVs, making sustainable mobility attainable for almost everyone.

Yes, I did say ‘almost’ everyone, this is because the way that taxes are set here in Malaysia, any car from a non-local brand is simply sold at a much higher price just for being a non-local brand. To make matters worse, these cars cost even more when they are not locally assembled so true affordable mobility will never be a thing here in Malaysia unless this changes.


Well, at the end of the day we know that all this was done in order to encourage more people to buy local cars instead, but for the most part, we all know that there wasn’t a single local car that could compete in a real way back then but that is slowly changing these days, however, we still have a long way to go to catch up to international EVs.
