Aiways is a new EV brand from China. The ION U5 is their first production car; a nice looking mid-size crossover. It debuted last year as a semi-concept, and the production car looks largely the same.
This is the new BYD Qin Pro, one of China’s prettiest sedans ever. It will launch on the Chinese car market on September 20. Sadly however BYD appears to be very uncertain about the future; the Qin Pro will be offered in a triple: petrol, EV, and PHEV. Come on BYD, make up your mind!
This little red beauty is the new Baojun E200, a small electric car from China. It is not some fancy pansy concept car; the Baojun E200 is for real, and it will launch on the Chinese car market next month.
Chinese EV startup NIO has only 17.000 reservations for their ES8 electric SUV, which is really not much for an over-hyped company in the biggest car market in the world. It gets worse:
When I was exiting my favorite Burger King hamburger shed in Beijing I saw a NIO charging van on the back of a stinkin’ diesel powered Foton flatbed. I ran across a boulder and a parking lot and got there just in time.
That can’t be right!
This little blue wonder is the NETA N01, a new small electric crossover for China. The NETA N01 will be launched on the Chinese car market in August. Price, after subsidies, will start around 80.000 yuan.
Last month we shocked the world with the images of a totally crazy new Baojun mini EV. Today we have a set of leaked official photos of the thing, confirming its unusual daring design. We have also learned that it will be called the Baojun E200.
What, can we say? … [waiting a minute]
Okay. There we go. It is a Baojun. It is an electric car. It is real. And General Motors is responsible.
