Mercedes-Benz has previously confirmed that an electric version of the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV is in development, but so far the car is at the concept car stage, and the official release is still far away.

While Mercedes-Benz is thinking, the Chinese have already released their electric Gelendvagen

However, in China, those who wish can already purchase an electric Gelendvagen of local production. Externally, the car looks like a reduced copy of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. At the same time, it is equipped with an engine with a power of only 4 kW.

Also, the Chinese Gelendvagen received front and rear parking sensors, a large digital instrument panel and a multimedia entertainment system screen, a “washer” for switching driving modes and a classic parking brake handle, which looks like a real alien from the past in this cabin.

The car can be charged from a conventional 220 V network, and the charging connector is hidden under the manufacturer’s logo. This is also a three-beam star, like Mercedes-Benz, but turned upside down.

Even the Chinese media have already questioned the safety of this car, as well as the strength of its body. In addition, poor battery placement and a poor charging system can lead to spontaneous combustion.

578 hp acceleration to 100 km h in 3

The electric vehicle brand Avatr launched in 2018 as a joint venture between Changan and Nio. Later, Nio withdrew from the project due to financial problems, so now Changan and CATL are responsible for the creation of Avatr electric vehicles, and Huawei helps them. The images below show the Avatr 11, the brand’s first car. Now its interior can be seen on high-quality renderings.

But first, a few features. In the top version of the Avatr 11, it will be all-wheel drive, the power plant will produce 578 hp. Such a car will accelerate to 100 km / h in 3 seconds, and the maximum speed will be 200 km / h. The capacity of the traction battery, for which, of course, CATL is responsible, is an impressive 90.38 kWh.

Crossover dimensions – 4880 x 1970 x 1601 mm, wheelbase dyne – 2975 mm. For the autonomous driving system, three lidars, 6 millimeter-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and 13 cameras are provided. Its “brain” is Huawei’s 400 trillion operations per second (TOPS) computing system.

Developed by Huawei and “inside” is HarmonyOS, which runs the car’s infotainment system. You can manage it, by the way, with both voice and gestures.

A floating 15.6-inch touch screen is fixed on the center console, there are two more displays – with a diagonal of 10.25 inches (one of them is part of the dashboard). The central tunnel housed a charger for two smartphones. The audio system is represented by 13 speakers connected to a 12-channel amplifier.

At the back, there are two options for decorating the space: with two separate seats (in the top version, then the car will be four-seater) or with one common pillow, then five people will fit in the crossover.

You can book Avatr 11 in China for only $72, but there are no prices, even indicative ones. The novelty will go on sale in the third quarter of this year.

517 HP and a range of up to 700 km

The Chinese company BYD has completely declassified the Seal electric car: it has revealed specifications and prices, and has also started accepting pre-orders. It should be said right away that Seal became a hit: in just six hours, 22,637 cars were ordered. The result is no worse than that of some Cybertruck.

However, Seal will compete with other electric vehicles. For example, the same Tesla Model 3. And here on the side of the Chinese car there is an advantage in terms of dimensions: it is 106 mm longer, 26 mm wider and 17 mm higher than the Model 3. The wheelbase is 45 mm longer. Dimensions BYD Seal: 4800 x 1875 x 1460 mm, wheelbase – 2920 mm.

BYD Seal is based on the BYD e-platform 3.0 platform, the key feature of which is CTB (Cell to Body) technology. This means that the battery is integrated into the body structure. In particular, the cells are located under the floor. BYD says that it is completely safe: the battery can withstand a pressure of 50 tons.

Another notable technology is iTAC. It is an intelligent torque control system. Due to her, the car passed the “moose test” at a speed of 83.5 km / h. At about the same speed, the McLaren 675LT supercar passes this test.

Outwardly, the BYD Seal resembles the Tesla Model 3, and for good reason: it has well-developed aerodynamics. Aerodynamic drag coefficient Cd – 0.219. This is even less than the Porsche Taycan.

BYD Seal is available in four versions. Basic – with a single electric motor on the rear axle, a traction battery with a capacity of 61.44 kWh with a cruising range of 550 km. The price is $31,890. The second configuration is no different technically, but due to different options it is more expensive – $ 33,840.

The third BYD Seal is rear-wheel drive with a 82.56 kWh traction battery that provides a range of 700 km. The price of this option is $39,380. At the top of the range is the all-wheel drive BYD Seal with a power plant with a capacity of 517 hp, the same battery with a capacity of 82.56 kWh, but the power reserve is already less here – 650 km. The price is $43,430. By comparison, a rear-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 costs $43,600 in China. Seal is not only bigger, but also cheaper.

The version of Chery’s electric car with a high-capacity traction battery is capable of driving 408 km on a single charge.
