Chinese manufacturers are rushing to implement development projects of electric vehicles, such a company is Chery Automobile Co., which launched a high-speed all-electric EV M1. Chinese cars to electric cars small city cars to come. With a cheap price. Do not panic, however, Chery M1 instead of the electric car. Hardly. Not a good model of the new brand is an electric version of the M1 Riich, which sold for more than a year in China. Riich is a sub-brand Chery.
What is strange for a company that is not even 15 years for a sub-brand, but has already four Riich Chery brand, with a little more elegant than the bread and butter of Chery Auto. M1 base gasoline engine of one liter begins just below the 40,000 RMB (~ $ 6000). But only two airbags, and you have to pay 70,000 yuan to close (~ $ 10,500) for a model with a 1.3 liter engine and power steering.
E-M1 has been seen before, and the name of the Chery S18. In fact, I remember the press release in February 2009, Chery said it had launched an electricity S18. It ‘just a lie … Only a few cars are made for testing, and none were sold to private customers. The cars are available at the time, price 149.800000000000 yuan (~ $ 22,600) and the base model, and 229.800000000000 yuan (~ $ 34,600), the best version, electric air conditioning system. This is not the price that we expect from Chinese producers. The Chery Riich M1 is a very small car, 142 cm long and 63 inches long. Who would pay much for such a small car?
Chery electricity in China with the support of incentives for zero-emission vehicles up to 60,000 yuan (~ $ 9,000), but no plans to export abroad. I understand. M1 EV has a top speed of 75 mph is a range of 93 miles on lithium batteries BAK. Even if a really good player, which I doubt, will have a difficult time against the sheet Nissan or Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
Chery has joined other local automakers, including the Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co and Great Wall Motor Co., the launch of a new energy vehicles, the sectors identified by the Government of China has strategic interests. M1-EV is equipped with an electric propulsion system is 336 volts, has a top speed of 120 mph and can cover 150 miles on one charge, the company said in a statement. The statement did not say how the cost of the new models. To promote Chery will be more difficult to produce environmentally friendly cars by electricity. Chery vehicles looking new with the new specification.
