BYD E6 is the first Chinese electric car, and just received authorization from the Chinese Government to start its series production. It will begin selling in your country this semester and will disembark in United States at year end. It is not a power of the heap, it promises a lot. Why? It has 600 kg of batteries, so you have an electric range a little elevated, up to 400 km without recharging. Its lithium-ion battery technology allows fast recharges 10 minutes (50%) or an hour for a full charge. Input, better than most of its electrical competitors. It accelerates to 100 km/h in 8 seconds and reaches 160 mph of tip.
It’s a minivan with front or total traction with a cast of powers of 101 at 268 HP. It is a pure electric, it only works with electricity. The AWD versions have no mechanical connection between axes, but two electric motors. Such autonomy has a price, a very high weight, 2.375 kg unladen. To get an idea, nor the heavier version of the SsangYong Rodius weighs so much. It has five seats and a trunk of 365 liters, more worthy of a compact. You won’t have the best performance, but their efficiency is unbeatable by any competing gasoline or diesel. Its price in China is 300,000 yuan to change less than 32,000 euros.
According to the website of the project MOVELE, it could be in Europe this semester also since it says that it will hit the market on March 14, 2010. The price is not defined but is a candidate for a major grant and Plan 2000E. With a price around 24,000 euros thanks to subsidies, became candidate to fight for the segment MPV especially in people living near the city, and the cost per kilometre would be attractive. There are logical questions such as, the veracity of these figures, safety, durability, etc. Original author and source of the article.
