The Alliance of Renault, Nissan and Dongfeng launched one of the cheapest electric cars

The Alliance of Renault, Nissan and Dongfeng launched a small City K-ZE: a, but of revolution it is unlikely.

Compact pyatidverka was presented in the spring, but entirely characteristic of City K-ZE sounded just now. Given the original intention of the partners to make electromobility as accessible as possible, the imagination they hit. For example, power reserve, measured by the NEDC cycle (which has long been suspected of being detached from reality), is only 270 km, and provided it is small with a 26.8-kilowatt battery to recharge which will take at least 4 hours.

The electric motor on the front axle develops 45 HP and 125 Nm of torque, driving the Renault City K-ZE to a maximum of 105 km/h. other dynamic characteristics are not known, but it is known that the equipment of electric cars for the same reason, is not luxurious. However, in addition to only two airbags and air conditioning is mentioned, and a full multimedia system with 8-inch monitor.

Built City K-ZE on the basis of the acclaimed Pseudorasbora Renault Kwid, designed for emerging markets. As previously reported, the electric car has retained almost all the dimensions of “Kvid”, with the exception of clearance: a battery mounted in the floor panel, was forced to reduce it to 151 mm.

It is known that the Renault Kwid is considered one of the most affordable offerings, but the electric City K-ZE was more than twice as expensive in the market of China it will be asked at least the equivalent of 8 $ 700, and it is based on public benefits. However, in Europe for comparable money offers from Renault electric cars Twizy only, which is called a full car is still complicated.
