Default Re: Zotye Zhidou E20

@Dragin: I agree with your first paragraph.

If I were to pick some hopeful candidates, the most likely manufacturers to transition to the NEV sector over the next few years might be Yogomo, Levdeo, Lichi and Shifeng.

Yogomo does have some type-approved vehicles, mainly cargo versions of their LSEVs, as well as EV and gas versions of their M6320/X6320 (Jieshun) van.

Levdeo of Byvin group is coming up with more powerful, lithium-battery powered versions of their D70 and V60. The V60i is expected to have a decent range. Their designs are good, too. So they are at least heading in the right direction.

Lichi's flagship car, the E9, has a mature design, good enough to be a mainstream car. If any LSEV deserves to become an NEV, in my opinion it is this one. Also remember, Loncin is going to make significant investments into this company and it is their stated goal to make Lichi a major EV player.

Shifeng has shown it is capable of making/acquiring respectable designs - viz. the D101 and D201. Also it is the largest LSEV maker around.

Apart from these, there is of course Kandi (the K10 is a licensed NEV, now upgraded to meet new requirements for 2016). Durabl is another maker which has a car reportedly capable of meeting 2016 standards waiting in the wings.

Hi Dmitra,
As for the Kandi K10, isn't it a Geely Meiri (aka SC6, MK)? I wonder if Kandi has any self developed models that have been licensed? Perhaps the K17 or K30?

No, dragin, Kandi K10 is Kandi's own model, the original small 3-door car. The K10 is the (technically upgraded) NEV-compliant version of their KD5010/5011/KD28E LSEV.

The K11, K17 and K30 are electric versions of Geely's existing cars. Another upcoming Kandi model is the K12.

Here are the models: http://www.kandivehicle.com/ProductL...=0&classid2=68

Thanks Dmitra. I had mistaken the K17 for a K10.
You have confirmed what I guessed about Kandi not having developed any model outside the small three door type.

Default Geely-Zhidou D2S

Facelifted D2, known as D2S. It appears no technical changes have been made.

Of note, the original E20 model that was distributed by Zotye is now known as "H1".

Further to the discussion about the legalization and certification of Low Speed Electric Vehicle is this article of today:

Unfortunately it doesn't go too far beyond what we know already, but it does agree with your suggestion that Shifeng will be among the lucky ones.
