Qiantu K50 Electric Sports Car Debuts In China – Live Review/Test Drive
Auto China motor show in Beijing was full of electric cars this year.
One of the most conspicuous was the Qiantu Motor K50, a pure electric sports car with an aluminium frame and carbon fiber body, which is based on the earlier prototype shown in Shanghai in 2015.
Update: Full video review of the K5o in action below (hat tip to Maxim!)
The Qiantu K50 (shown in coupé and roadster versions) is scheduled for production in 2017 with price tag north of $100,000.
Spec includes 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds. Two electric motors provides 402bhp of power and 479lb ft (650 Nm) of torque. The range is apparently up to 186 miles (300 km).
Inside there is Tesla-style large touchscreen.
According to Autocar, Qiantu Motor is building a new factory with annual output of 50,000 cars, but we assume that most of the production will be designed for other low-spec, more popular models (two other were also shown in Beijing).
