This is the production version of the new Changan CS15 EV, a new electric car based on the CS15 compact SUV. The CS15 EV will launch on the Chinese car market in Q3. The grille differs from the petrol powered car and features a blue Changan badge. Blue is the color of green cars in China.

Power comes from an electric motor with 75hp and 170nm, good for a 110 km/h top speed and a range of 300 kilometers. Changan hasn’t specified whether the range is measured by the European NEDC standard or the American EPA standard, but in general Chinese manufacturers use NEDC.

    The rear is from the Renault Captur. Also, Ford EcoSport mirrors. The interior looks Ford-inspired too.

    Always interesting to see how Chinese cars and even EVs do (only) get exported to certain S.American countries. Automotively and politically “non-aligned” ballsy countries like Peru, Chile etc.
