    Roewe E50

    Post by Windy on Wed Feb 29, 2012 2:41 am



    Last time we saw this it was an MG!


    SAIC, the first pure electric vehicles will test the water a private car market



    SAIC and Shanghai International Automobile City signed a new energy vehicle demonstration to promote strategic cooperation agreement. SAIC will work with the Shanghai International Automobile City, the first batch of 200 pure electric vehicles, E50 Roewe to the private car market, accelerate the process of new energy vehicle market.

    It is reported that SAIC, the Shanghai International Automobile City Shanghai Gao Zhan, the new energy car sales Services Limited, will soon reach a cooperation intention to buy on the the Roewe E50 pure electric vehicles. Gao Zhan, a new energy company plans to buy 200 the Roewe E50 pure electric vehicles, and gradually push the private car market.

    Roewe E50 SAIC took three years of independent research and development, the real mass production of pure electric vehicles the objective of “zero emissions”, with completely independent intellectual property rights. It has a fast charge and slow charge two charging modes to meet different customer needs of the different conditions of use on a single charge conditions in the city mileage is greater than 120 km.

    April, 2011, electric vehicles, international model city in China (Shanghai) officially inaugurated the Shanghai International Automobile City is actively involved in promoting the implementation of the main demonstration and promotion of electric vehicles in China. The SAIC, the first pure electric car is officially sold to the private car market, will promote the development of the new energy automobile market.

    The lithium ion battery-powered E50 uses several lightweight materials for various applications to support reduced energy consumption and lower emissions, such as Plexiglas acrylic resin for the side screens, rear window and rear lamps, and Rohacell polymethacrylimide (PMI) rigid closed cell foam and an epoxy resin formulation based on Vestamin hardener technology for the engine hood.

    China's first real mass production and the objective of the pure electric car, the Roewe E50 will be available in volume in October this year, and plans this year, sales will reach 1000. Yesterday, SAIC Group and Shanghai International Automobile City signed a new energy vehicle demonstration to promote strategic cooperation agreement.

    Meanwhile, SAIC, the Shanghai International Automobile City, the Shanghai Gao Zhan, a new energy vehicle sales and service the Roewe E50 pure electric vehicles to promote the intention to reach a consensus, 200 pure electric Roewe E50 is expected to test the water a private car market. Electric vehicles, international model city in China (Shanghai) is about to enter one thousand level substantive new energy vehicle demonstration stage.

    The Roewe E50 by SAIC last three years of independent research and development of "zero emissions" pure electric vehicles, with a fast charge and slow charge two charging modes. Roewe E50 mileage in city conditions than the more than 120 kilometers on one charge.

    SAIC new energy and technology management, executive director of yesterday revealed Roewe E50 price has not been finalized, because the yield is less, the recent car sales will be the largest corporate buy-based.

    General Manager of Shanghai Gao Zhan, a new energy car sales Services Limited Zengxiang Yi said in an interview with reporters yesterday, the company plans to buy 200 Roewe the E50, and sold within the model city. 4S shop in November last year, 23 New Energy since the establishment of reception visits and telephone consultation 2,000 people, and to achieve the actual sale of 20 new energy vehicles, and more than 30 units also discuss the future sales of 200 electric car is not a problem. "

    Yesterday also said that the saving rate of more than 20% of the the Roewe new 750 hybrid cars last year, has been listed this year, fuel economy rate of 50% of the Roewe 550 plug-in hybrid cars and own brand of pure electric cars will soon mass production.

    SAIC executive vice president and general manager of Shanghai Automotive Passenger Vehicle Company, Chih-Hsin Chen disclosed that date, SAIC has in the field of new energy investment of two billion yuan in the next five years will continue to invest 6 billion yuan.

    General manager of Shanghai International Automobile City (Group) Co., Ltd. Rong Wenwei also told reporters that after 10 years of construction, the Shanghai International Automobile City has attracted investment to more than 70 billion yuan. Shanghai International Automobile City will new energy vehicle development as one of the main work. In addition to the new energy vehicles, Rong Wenwei said the next step will be pushing the development of auto finance.

    In addition, Rong Wenwei, led by the China Machinery Industry Federation, Shanghai Automotive Industry Fund is to raise long-term scale of up to 50 billion yuan. This fund will be used to put on the Shanghai and the country's automotive R & D and investment, such as the urgent need of investment in new energy vehicles, and other fields.

    It's turned into the Roewe E1 with MG badges again!

    With a 47KW electric motor it should be quite fast from the traffic lights even if the top speed is only the motorway speedlimit - remember that electric motors provide most torque and bhp at 0 rpm and least at top speed unlike a petrol engine.












    Not little room in the back row Roewe E1 - more spy photos exposed



    Roewe has exhibited at the Beijing motor show two years ago called E1 electric concept car . When people are still discussing rush to launch pure electric concept car at this time is to follow the hype when roewe facts clearly prove that it is not the concept, because the mass production of E1 version already in the road test. Roewe E1 production car spy photos is not the first time exposure. We get this set of spy photos of the details this time more detailed, particularly the exposure of the spy photos in the back row for the first time, show that this is a very good city commuter cars.

    E1 and picture from the side of the body concept contrast can be found , although the production car in the whole lines and concept cars as much as possible to keep on, but vehicle concept car designs are not copied. Compared to concept cars, production version has fewer fluent, more compact, and show the E1 in the postpartum, is not ready to play stunt, but also take into account the cost of control, finally launches consumer (price) to accept the product.

    Does not involve details of vehicle manufacturing cost, mass production models and concept cars as much as possible. E1, after all, after the concept vehicles on display, design was unanimously praised.

      Used to face the past, design of the production car is basically a concept car but engine along under the cover not extend so low, instead of using the General layout of the models commonly used. Location and shape of the headlights and the concept is similar, from the test car will be seen, it is similar to love Europe so no shade design. Under the front bumper along with a similar mass -model blade outstanding design, to better protect pedestrians.

    Although some compact concept car, but mass production of E1 side lines are still expressed in dynamic and fluid motion, side window shape a sense of design, front door side window-sink design is still being preserved. Unique wheel shape is not a Maverick, but for the better and wheel motor arrangement. Wheel motors are the future electric car development trends, is also developed with General Motors for electric vehicles converted an important difference between electric vehicles. This design is more efficient, drive system is simpler, belonging to the many practices in one fell swoop. 175/60R13 wheels and tires should be said to be zhongguizhongju it, comply with the position of the city car.

    Tail design highlights that can be counted as E1, although the production version different from the concept version, but the essence has basically preserved. Includes rear design of the large-area, there is also integrated with the c-pillar of the rear window, tail lights, etc. Pictures by local features can be seen, this model of more ways to use black paint to achieve, but you can still get good visual results.

    Interiors, E1 version designed for mass production is also very impressive, a high degree of innovation in many details, reflect the electric and General "cars" are different. For example the entire central console without the use of complicated design, simplicity is surprising. But you don't have to worry about E1 interiors will be very flat, large LCD touch integration host not only looks pretty cool, and the technology should not be overlooked. Despite the current features of the host how to implement is unknown, but can be sure of is that these features are done by touching the keys, and is integrated in the control Assembly.

    Feels cool design of the instrument. Spy photos of the shooting angle is not ideal, but still can be seen as a digital instrument, in addition to some central display of numerical and other function keys should also uses a liquid crystal display, and mouldings of the blue line with the host, is full of the sense of science fiction.

      Only is not to force and MG3 steering wheel. But judging from MG3 LOGO on the steering wheel, this is only an expedient measure, this electric vehicle should have a single Deputy in the future belong to his steering wheel.

    E1 from a size point of view at best be micro-car, and it has only two side door design, it should not focus on the feeling of riding in the back row. However, judging from the exposure of the spy photos in the back row for the first time, its not cramped rear space, ride will do nothing less than mainstream micro sedan on the market. Four layout is still preserved, but this cannot be regarded as a disadvantage-design-using two separate seats in the back row, it can make people have a better ride. After all, such a micro-car, even the 5 seat design, and who will be at the back at the same time by three people?

    E1 on the production version of the ultimate power equipped with unknown. The data given in accordance with the concept before, E1 is the use of electric drive technology, electric power up to 47-kilowatt, you can let E1 be the maximum speed of 120 km/h. Battery pack using autonomous common lithium iron phosphate batteries for electric vehicles, ideally cruising range of up to 135 km/h. In response to the electric car charging problems that may arise, E1 battery pack also comes with a feature-filled, 30 minutes to charge 80%.

      With the State's industrial policy advocacy, more and more domestic automakers are trying to launch electric vehicles. Because of the different energy conversion principle and the nature of the driving principle, electric power transmission links and the traditional internal combustion engine cars are radically different. Those based on a traditional car, directly into the engine with electric motor can only be regarded as an expedient measure, unlikely to become the mainstream of electric vehicles. Electric cars of the future, only based on the core of the motor and battery energy storage for a new development, taking advantage of the motor-driven to maximum effect, is the only way. At the same time, at this stage, the electric vehicle should be dominated by small, mainly commute daily to and from work and other cities, rather than go in for grandiose projects, in line with the current battery technology is equipped with. In this regard, SAIC did reflect the style of a number of domestic manufacturers. From the perspective of spy photos, roewe E1-no gimmicks to the blind pursuit of Luxury upscale, but commute to urban micro vehicle positioning of electric vehicles at the present stage to reflect the core requirements. According to the current message, E1, are likely to be listed this year. Then if the price reasonable, in the case of subsidized prices not too much more expensive than the average small family car, believes it will be able to access to consumers, in particular (unlimited rows, do not shake, for electric vehicles) line of urban consumers.

    When I think what many cars are used for - driving to work or the station and park there, to school, to the shops - an electric car whose engine is really designed "to start from cold" is a very good idea and surely a way forward.

    And MG is in the forefront!

    You can always hire an MG6 from Avis for you family holiday, for many people an E1 would be ideal and the fuel is very cheap. Only problem is the cost of the batteries and that will surely drop once real mass production begins.

    Very good point - my wife would be happy to have an electric car for her comute to work etc but they are priced uncompetively.

    If the MG6 had an auto I'd hire one for me hols :-)
