Singulato shipped their new iS6 electric crossover SUV to the Shanghai Auto Show, showing off its beautiful lights and dark blue body. Singulato is a brand under Zhiche Auto, a Chinese start-up based in Beijing. Small-batch production of the iS6 will start late this year and mass production in mid 2018. Price will range from 200.000 to 300.000 yuan ($30.000 – 43.000), pitching the iS6 straight up against the Tesla Model 3.

Driver’s can change the output of the screen in the grille. I hope it can do “Police Move Over”, in mirrored script.

Specs: range of 400 kilometers, And Singulato claims that a one hour charge on a fast-charger is enough for 320 kilometers. 0-100 takes four seconds. The battery pack consists of 18650 lithium ion batteries. No info yet on the motor.

Design is nice overall but it seems a bit stretched out and the shoulder line seems a tad too low. Large rear overhang.

Another talking screen at the rear.

The rear looks a bit empty between the light unit and the bumper.

The underbelly is completely flat.

The interior looks great. The screen seems a tad too tall, blocking the driver’s sight. It also seems to block at least a part of the air vents. Steering wheel very classy. Digital instruments. Luxurious leather seats.

The main screen is 15.6 inch, the instrument panel is 12.3 inch, there is and a 16.3 inch head-up display (HUD), which we cannot see on this pic. That adds up to 44.2 inches of beautiful distraction!

    If it’s good looking then maybe. Unfortunately the proportion is terrible.

  2. Well… 400 km NEDC….? That is not good enough. Chevy Bolt, Europe: Opel Ampera-e has 520 km. Same measure method. So, it come late, and not strong enough for the market – in Europe. And in 2019 -20120, forget it.

    But it is much more practical than the Tesla 3, that isn’t a stationcar/SUV. But don’t forget the VW competion, etc.

    Btw., I hope the picture No. 3 is shrinked, because the front door looks really narrow!
