The new Arcfox entered the assembly line of the BAIC plant in Zhenjiang back in mid-July 2020. The four-door was known under the factory index N61. Now, the Chinese media have declassified the official name of the sedan.

A new Arcfox αS electric sedan will appear in China early next year. Recall that Arcfox is part of the BAIC Group. In terms of its dimensions, the novelty is similar to the Korean models Hyundai Sonata and Kia K5 – the length of the car reaches 4930 mm with a wheelbase of 2915 mm.

Without recharging, the new sedan will be able to travel 525, 603 and 708 kilometers – everything will depend on the chosen modification. The 218-horsepower electric motor will receive a torque of 360 N • m (previously the lower figure was called – 300 N • m). According to rumors, the new electric sedan will have a version with a powerful 238 hp electric motor. However, most likely, this has nothing to do with the real plans of the brand.

The Arcfox αS car interior was designed in a retro style, modernizing the classics through the latest technologies. So, the Chinese placed displays across the entire width of the front panel.

The arsenal of an environmentally friendly sedan includes a media center that can recognize voice commands, a projection display, wireless charging for gadgets, matrix optics on LEDs, etc. An autopilot is also announced for the novelty, but there is no information about the level of autonomy.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen has unveiled an updated Phideon sedan for the 2021 model year. Compared to its predecessor, the updates were not very noticeable. Sales will begin in November.
