As is well known, there are currently small batches of domestically produced new energy vehicles from foreign brands that enjoy the same subsidy treatment as Chinese brand new energy vehicles
Domestic new energy vehicle companies not only have technological gaps compared to foreign countries, but many even fall into the misconception of "range". Due to the limitations of materials and technology, the current battery provides limited range. In order to provide range, car companies often adopt the method of increasing battery packs, which to some extent increases energy consumption and reduces the available space in the car.
"Although electric vehicles with a range of 200 kilometers and 300 kilometers have already been launched in the Chinese market at this time, Changan will not adopt a simple research and development method of increasing the number of batteries to obtain a range," Ren Yong told reporters. The difference between Changan and other manufacturers in creating pure electric vehicles is that they pay more attention to "vehicle layout" and "comprehensive energy consumption", that is, they will not blindly add batteries to the vehicle body to pursue factors such as range alone. ", This leads to consequences such as limited interior space, reduced comfort and safety.
Taking Changan Yidong pure electric vehicle as an example, in the overall vehicle layout, Changan automotive engineers raised the chassis, enlarged the tires, and replaced the shock absorbers in order to install batteries. "If I go to see someone else's car, test driving is one aspect, and I also need to look at its overall layout, because the layout involves the open workload of the product," Ren Yong said. If I want to increase the range and affect the interior space to reduce the driving experience, it will not be worth the loss.
In terms of comprehensive energy consumption, the current energy consumption of Yidong pure electric vehicles reaches 15 kWh per 100 kilometers. Ren Yong proudly asked, "How many car companies can truly achieve it now?".
