    another compliance EV with ridicolous range. When the chinese car manufacturer will acknoledge that a modern EV of this size can have at least 450 km range ? These Chinese Ev belong to the past generation of electric cars with low energy density battery. But it’s already a few years that are available also in China lithium cells that are able to triple the range of a standard Ev like this Changan Eado. Looks that the most of the chinese manufacturer are very slow to catch up with the leading technology. In this way the EV industry in China will never win at a global level.

    In August of last year you told us about a coming Eado hybrid (PHEV). Has this been substituted for that…, or will a hybrid also be available?
