BAIC of course holds a license to produce NEVs, but does its subsidiary Chang'he limit itself to producing just the low output/low speed "LSEVs" (with the exception of the EVS3)?
Or, does the "EV", you use to name these models, mean fully licensed NEVs.
These "EVs" are/will be NEVs of course. The Ideal EV3 was included in MIIT's July notice, which I had linked to in the first post, and which automatically suggests it is a licensed NEV, not an LSEV, even though it has a puny motor of 20 kW. The body is borrowed from the LSEV, Zhongke K1 (which has a 4 kW motor).
In spite of the small motor, the Ideal EV3 has a max. speed of 101 km/h and NEDC range of 256 km, complying with the "double 100" rule, and its range also exceeds 150 km, making it eligible for a little bit of subsidy and a purchase tax exemption.
Changhe has been making electric versions of the Beidouxing; even those are NEVs. It is true Changhe has not yet come up with a family size/midsize electric car/SUV yet.
