Levdeo E60 EV will be launched in China in 2015

This is the Levdeo E60 EV, a new electric car for China that will be launched on the Chinese electric car market in the third quarter of 2015. The Levdeo E60 EV is manufactured by a company called ‘Levdeo Electric Drive Company’, based in the great city of Weifang in Shandong Province.

Rather rudimentary here but the large LCD touch screen and drive selector are just hip enough. The Levdeo E60 EV is powered by an electric motor with an output of 24hp and 70nm, mated to a lithium-ion battery. Top speed is 120 kilometer per hour, and range is 180 kilometer. Charging takes eight hours on 220V.

Size: 3994/1618/1497, wheelbase is 2400.

Whether the Levdeo D60 will become available nationwide is yet unsure. The company is currently awaiting type approval by the Chinese central government. Until they receive approval they can only sell in their home province Shandong, where Levdeo is already selling the Levdeo D50 and D70 hatchbacks. Confusingly, the E50 is called D50 on Levdeo’s website.

The infotainment system works on Android and supports Bluetooth. It houses an internet browser, an audio player, a sat-nav system, and a rear-view camera.

A fine looking vehicle that will work best in the cities. Alloys almost sporty. No word yet on price but a electric car of this kind should start around 70.000 yuan including all green-car subsidies.

    This kind of not approved EV are not eligible to any kind of subsidy both from the central and local government. So if the price will be 70.000 rmb only , it will be a very cheap EV taking into account that similar car vwithout subsidy are priced over 200.000 rmb.
    This is an important point to be better studied, as i have the impression that the prices of the EV are exagerately inflated by the government recognized makers .

      I’m not too sure about that. Considering the amount of funds that went into product development and advertising, state auto-makers would have to charge a whole lot to make a semblance of profit (It’s not like they can source the battery from Panasonic or BYD). Quality and safety are also unknown variables on this Levdeo model.
