The Chinese company is preparing to market a new electric SUV. For the model stated two electric motors, it is possible that will be all-wheel drive version.
New cross involved in “trains” a unit of Chery New Energy announced at the end of last year, and in February, the Network posted photos of test prototypes. Now, however, published a full-fledged brand image of the production model. Chery in five-seat SUV is still called internal index S61. However, on the boot door you can see the signboard eQ5 – apparently, under this name, the cross and will go on sale.
Chery S61/eQ5 was the second model of the brand (and first SUV), built on a modular platform LFS, which was developed specially for electric vehicles (claimed the share of aluminium in construction – 93%). The firstborn of this “truck” – sitikar eQ1 (it is also known as AnteQ). Note, the other “train” Chery New Energy is created on the basis of “traditional” models (the range includes the “green” version of the SUV Tiggo 2/3x and Tiggo 4/5x, sedan Arrizo 5 and compact QQ).
If the name of the new Chery crossover, in tune with the Audi, then the appearance of “echoes” with the cars Lynk & Co (a joint project of Geely and Volvo). So, S61/eQ5 also received multi-storey head optics: located on top of the section, daytime running lamps below the main headlamp units connected by a jumper (the jumper Links this wider, because it is a grille), under them – fog. Feed read about the Porsche Macan and Cayenne. By the way, in previous releases, Chery New Energy says that a hand in the design of the crossover has made the staff of Studio Pininfarina.

Flagship Chery Tiggo 8 long (4700 mm), but the distance between the axes of the “eight” is less (2710 mm).

About the technique in Chery silent, but we already know about motors, thanks to the “plum” of the industry Ministry of the PRC. For S61 stated two motor – 163-strong index 112AAR and 177-strong 112AAT. According to preliminary data, the base cross has rear-wheel drive, but the presence of two motors, that means that for the model provided four-wheel drive option (motor on each axle). However, it is better to wait for official presentation. Battery information is also unavailable, while the local media have tipped cross “range” in the 500-510 km, however, this indicator is calculated on obsolete cycle NEDC. By the way, front-wheel drive Chery Tiggo e (elektroversiya Tiggo 4) with a 129-horsepower engine and a battery capacity of 53.6 per kWh on a single charge can travel 401 kms (also on the NEDC cycle).
