Re: Changhe EV3

The Changhe EV3 will be followed by two other electric vehicles, the EV5 based on another LSEV (Yudea YD360) and EVS3 based on the Q25 SUV:

Changhe has started construction of a new factory (New Energy Base) in Chaisang Dt., Jiujiang, which will be their fourth plant. In the initial phase this will have a capacity of 50,000 NEVs per year.

Re: Changhe mini EV

The name "Ideal" (爱迪尔) will be revived for the small car EV3, according to MIIT. Range is 256 km; equipped with a 29 kWh battery pack.

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.
