China’s Sunra has released its first electric car i03December 4, 2020
The first electric hatchback was released on December 2. In terms of its dimensions, the electric car is smaller than the same KIA Picanto. Prior to that, the company produced electric scooters and bicycles.
The history of the Chinese company Sunra began in 1999. The brand manufactures electric scooters and bicycles. Two years ago, the firm merged with Brilliance and began building a joint venture that will roll off electric vehicles. Now the plant has begun to produce battery-powered hatchbacks Sunra i03 and i03A.
The enterprise is going to produce 100 thousand cars annually. The length of the Sunra i03 is 3,288 mm with a wheelbase of 2,185 mm. It is a compact and stylish city car with expressive round headlights and a slightly cartoonish front end. Electric motor power reaches 45 kW (61 HP, 150 N • m). In conjunction with it, a battery with a capacity of 38.5 kW • h works. Without recharging, an electric car will travel about 410 kilometers.
The i03A version differs from the i03 with a slightly modified design. This electric hatch has redesigned bumpers, original optics for LED, etc.
But in terms of the interior, these two models are identical. The electric car will appear on the home market in December-January.
Sunra keeps the price lists secret. Competitors for the new electric car today start at 28,800 yuan. By 2022, a four-seater electric sedan and a battery-powered commercial van will join the electric hatch.
