It has been a while since we hear from Horki, but here they are with their ‘new’ 300E, a compact electric sedan that will hit the Chinese car market in Q4. Horki is a sub-brand under the Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia joint venture. We saw the first spy shots in 2012, the brand officially debuted in April 2013, and we saw new spy shots in May 2014, and then it got very silent.
New Spy Shots of the Chery @Antelectric mini car, scheduled for launch on the Chinese car market in the fourth quarter. It looks hop enough with two-tone paint, yellow headlights, fake vents in the bumper, and sporty wheels with red brakes.
The Hanergy solar-powered cars have caused quite a stir. We now have new information on the cars and the company’s plans. Production of the first solar car is two to three years away. The cars are fitted with a standard lithium-ion battery and can be charged at any charging station. The solar panels function as an extra source to extend range. In the future Hanergy wants to make fully solar-powered cars.
China’s Hanergy has unveiled four solar-powered vehicles. The company says production could start around 2020. Hanergy Holdings is a large clean-energy company and the world’s largest thin-film solar power company. The four vehicles are fitted with solar panels on the roof tops and on the bonnets.
Spy Shots of the interior of the faceliftedBYD Qin plug-in hybrid show a brand new dashboard with a giant Tesla-like touch screen in the middle. It seems slightly smaller, narrower in particular, than the 17 inch screen of the Tesla Model S. The instrument binnacle and center tunnel are all new too.
BYD is working on a facelift for the Qin plug-in hybrid sport sedan, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in Q3. The facelift includes a new grille, a new rear bumper, new badges, and blue wheels!
The facelift comes at a curious moment; in April BYD launched the Qin EV300, a full-electric version of the Qin, which is based on the non-facelifted car. Are they going to facelift that one too, just two months after launch..?
Spy Shotsshowing a new electric mini car for China by Beijing Auto. It doesn’t seem quite finished yet, check the tape on the A-pillar and the simple gray dash, but it will be launched on the Chinese car market sometime late this year. The yet nameless vehicle will be manufactured by BAIC BJEV, a subsidiary of the Beijing Auto Industry Corporation (BAIC) that makes electric cars.
When Beijing Auto bought Change in 2013 it was widely expected that the old Changhe-Suzuki joint venture would die. But it didn’t. They are still making cars, including the Beidouxing, which is based on the Wagon R+. Changhe will now use that car for a new electric vehicle called the Beidouxing E.
Chery is working on a small electric mini car for China, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in Q4. It is called the @Ant. This ultra hip name has been used before, on two innovative concept cars:
