New Car from China: Greenwheel EV Jummer
Published on May 29, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
This is the new ‘Jummer’, an electric vehicle from a company called Greenwheel EV from the city of Shenzhen in China. I saw it today at the Beijing International High Tech Exhibition. Design is insipred by a certain American machine but much cleaner indeed.
The Jummer has a 72V150Ah battery coupled to an ‘AC Electric Motor’. Top speed is 45km/h and range is 100km. Staff told me it was a new car, price will be around 15.000 rmb and that ain’t cheap. But!, is has a 35% max grading, which other electric vehicle can do that? Power goes to the rear wheels. Size: 3085x1665x1635, wheelbase is 1968 and weight 880kg, it can carry two.
Spare wheel for unforseen troubles up mountain.
Dash needs some work me think, it’s a bit boring. Very small dial in front of the wheel and a screen on the center console. No radio or cd. No engine noise. Means you got to sing. The Jummer could do just that, quality-wise it was all good and well put together. If only good old Hummer would have thought of a car like this…
