SAIC Motor’s brand Roewe unveiled at the 2015 Guangzhou Auto Show in China an interesting electric concept car.

It’s called Roewe Vision-R and brings new design style to the Chinese brand.

On the drivetrain side, two electric motors (one per axle) are reported. Electric AWD is strong enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.

The range is outstanding at 540 km (335 miles), but  we certain this is on a very optimistic test cycle.

Unfortunately, there are no other specs available.

Australian site CarAdvice suggests a production version coming, but sadly it’ll be with a conventional drivetrain from SAIC partner General Motors – Buick LaCrosse.

  3. Mikael says:

    It looks good and with the range like that it would even be about the same as a Tesla (the 90D gets 560 km on the very optimistic NEDC cycle).

    What’s the problem? It’s just another concept in the long line of concepts. Get some vehicles that you will get into production out there instead…

    With almost a ton of batteries, you can get range.
