New presentation of electric cars for China6. June 2019
The Chinese government is firmly committed to electromobility and promotes new technologies, environmentally friendly drives and introduces a quota for electric cars, which will already apply from 2020. That’s why this year’s Auto Shanghai trade fair will focus on electric cars and autonomous driving. Large vehicles such as SUVs continue to be popular with the Chinese, which is why Volkswagen has expanded its range of SUV models. The ID.Roomzz, part of the electric ID. family, has three rows of seats and a range of 450 kilometres. It is equipped with autonomous Stage 4 technology (fully automated) and will initially only be sold in China. Before the ID.Roomzz is ready for series production, however, the electric models of the Golf, Bora and Lavida – all based on the new MQB platform – will come onto the market.
As another German manufacturer, Audi will be represented at Auto Shanghai with the Ai:me. The futuristic electric car is equipped with a lighting system that visually displays the vehicle’s behaviour to pedestrians and cyclists. Designed as a compact city car, Audi has so far indicated an electric motor output of 170 hp and a battery capacity of 65 kWh, with no details being given on the range. VW subsidiary Skoda presents the Vision iV study in Shanghai. The electric car is powered by two engines with a system output of 306 hp and has a range of 500 kilometres.
Renault is in Shanghai together with its joint venture Dongfeng Renault Automotive Company and shows the series version of last year’s K-ZE study. The fully electric compact SUV is Renault’s sixth electric model and part of the international strategic plan “Drive the Future”. Infiniti, the Japanese premium manufacturer, has travelled to Shanghai with an electric sports sedan contrarily to the previous mentioned brands. The Qs Inspiration Concept will serve as the basis for a new electric car platform. The Chinese start-up SF Motors presented its first electric model, the SUV SF5, under the Seres brand. It is a compact SUV with 693 hp and a range of 500 kilometers. Customers and companies in China appreciate the quality of foreign products in the automotive sector.
