A (pretty) electric car
A (pretty) electric car with 500 km of autonomy for less than 13,000 €, is it possible?
CAR If we believe the Chinese manufacturer Qiantu, yes, it is possible! The model in question, the K20, will however only be able to carry 2 passengers.Qiantu is a Chinese car manufacturer founded in 2016 and specializing in electric vehicles. A few years ago, the brand had launched the K50, a small electric roadster, but the success has not really been at the rendezvous and its production was stopped two years ago. Today, the manufacturer is back with a small two-seater electric sports car with very attractive lines.
On paper, the K20 is very promising. With barely 780 kg on the scale, its 215 hp and 290 Nm engine should allow it to achieve the 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5 seconds. No information has filtered about the capacity of the battery, but Qiantu announces a range (presumably according to a Chinese standard less strict than “our” WLTP) of 500 km.
Better yet, the starting price (in China) of the K20 is very interesting: 12,500 € (count 21,000 € for the best equipped model). It remains to be seen whether it will be distributed in Europe. For now, we can only cross our fingers.
