The LeSEE Super EV beats Tesla Model S with faster acceleration from 0-100 km/h, more distance per charge and it has a higher speed at its fastest point.
Jia Yueting, CEO of LeEco.
The LeSEE electric sedan was one of the hottest cars at the Beijing Auto Show. It is widely described as the “Chinese Tesla killer”, and the company has stated that it has Tesla in its sights. We have heard that one before. So does the LeSEE have what it takes?

The ultra crazy and mega interesting Faraday Future FFZERO1 has been unveiled to the media in Beijing and will have its public debut tomorrow on the Beijing Auto Show. The electric supercar got a much warmer welcome here than in Las Vegas, where it was almost murdered in a shit storm.

Another day, another new car brand from China. Today we celebrate the birth of ‘LeSee’, owned by LeTV, China’s largest internet television company, often compared to NetFlix. LeSee will have its public launch on the Beijing Auto Show next week.
For now the company focuses on two main projects: Faraday Future in the United States and the electric Aston Martin Rapide in the United Kingdom. On the Beijing show LeSee will also debut a new electric supercar concept, above, which seems to be a slightly more realistic variant of the crazy FaradayFFZERO1 that debuted in Las Vegas in January.
Interestingly, on the sketches the car wears ‘LeCar’ badges. This name would make some sense with LeTV and LeSee, but it also reminds us of a certain French vehicle, which is by the le way completely unknown in China, so maybe LeTV missed out on that.
