The car opens a line of models of the sub-brand with the R index. The SAIC concern is responsible for the production of the car.

Roewe has unveiled its first all-electric sedan, the ER6. Such an index was not a coincidence – some time ago, the SAIC concern and the Roewe brand decided that all electric cars would belong to the R sub-brand. Six electric models should be produced in total, and one of them should be a coupe-crossover. In terms of its dimensions, the novelty is similar to the popular Volkswagen Jetta and Skoda Octavia – the length of the car is 4,724 mm, and the distance between the axles reaches 2,715 mm.

In general, the silhouette of the car resembles the Roewe i6, but has a number of detailed differences from it. The main innovations are located in the cabin – the ER6 has been equipped with a fully digital instrument panel, as well as a large vertical multimedia system tablet. Its diagonal is 14.3 inches. The infotainment complex is equipped with an operating system that allows Internet access.

Also worth mentioning is the presence of climate control, electric adjustment of the front seats and all-round cameras. The electric motor is capable of delivering 184 hp. at 258 Nm of torque.

The operation of the power plant is supported by a 70 kWh battery. The manufacturer claims a power reserve of 620 km without recharging.
However, we are talking about the NEDC cycle, which reduces the real figure to 400 kilometers. The Roewe ER6 will go on sale in China before the end of this summer. The preliminary cost of new items is about 140,000 yuan

Meanwhile, Volkswagen has begun taking orders for the ID.3 electric hatchback. Initially, the First Edition trim level will enter the market, which has become limited. The model is one of the most anticipated on the European market this year.
