Zotye had two EVs in Shanghai
The E200 EV And The Zhima E30 Are Electric Mashups
The E200 EV comes in two- and four-door versions, powered by an electric motor with 24 horsepower and 60 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is listed as 80 kilometers per hour (50 mph), but we're not sure if it can actually go that fast. The number is important because only cars that can go at least 80 km/h are classified as proper electric cars instead of a Low Speed Electric Vehicle (LSEV), they can use the highway, and they're eligible for national and state subsidies. Range is said to be 120 kilometers, the price around 70,000 renminbi ($11,255 US).
The Zhima E30 appears to use the same electric motor - it has the same power output and the same top speed - but its range is a claimed 150 km. We don't know the price but it does have a nifty interior, we'll admit. Well, if that central touchscreen actually works.
