JAC iEV5 debuts on the Beijing Auto Show

The new JAC iEV5 EV, debuted on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, sporting an eye catching grille featuring thick chrome rims and a large JAC logo in blue. The JAC iEV5 is a new all-electric vehicle that will be launched on the China car market later this year.

Interior in tech-style with blue detailing, a screen on the center console, and a very hip drive-selector sitting on a blue ball.

A look under the bonnet reveals the electric motor. Open bonnets are rare on the Beijing show where staff normally gets completely hysterical if you ask to see an engine.

Output is 67hp and 210nm. Battery is lithium-ion. On the show JAC claimed a range of 200 kilometer. Top speed is 120 kilometers per hour. Size: 4310/1710/1500, wheelbase is 2490.

Price for the JAC  iEV5 will start around 200.000 yuan, but green-car subsidies will bring that down to about 130.000 at the dealer.

The JAC iEV5 will be positioned above the recently launched JAC iEV4. JAC is so far the only Chinese automaker that is offering two full-electric cars in its passenger car line-up. Even better known BYD only got one, and most of the others got exactly zero.

    To be more precise there is another chinese automaker that has 2 Evs in the market:
    Lifan, that is selling his 520Ev and 620 EV in several cities around China.
    These automakers are hurted by the local policy that does not allow to sell freely EV in everywhere in China. This policy should be cancel to give more choices to the consumers that are interested in buy EV in the mainland market
