［GUANGZHOU, November 16, 2018］ Qiantu Motor today showcased the QIANTU K50, the first production electric city sports car in China, at Auto Guangzhou. Qiantu Motor has for years been committed to NEV manufacturing for “driving pleasure” and delivers it in the QIANTU K50, built to express its brand slogan of “Evolution in Motion”. For the auto show, Qiantu Motor has brought a full lineup of QIANTU K50 sports cars in all available colors to present an iridescent feast of electric mobility.
Engineered for true driving pleasure
During Auto Guangzhou, the QIANTU K50 has grabbed countless eyeballs from both media and visitors because of its visually impactful appearance and use of new materials and become a unique sight at the auto show. Featuring a distinctive design language of “EXPRESSION OF LIFE”, it has an exterior that is at once ethereal and powerful, like a shark at rest in the city that is ready to sprint at any moment. The sports car’s elegance and power are highlighted by its succinct lines exuding tension and strength. In addition, the QIANTU K50 has a body comprising an all-aluminum frame and carbon-fiber covered parts, all in new composite materials which endow it with an outstanding lightweight construction.
“Built for city and born for driving pleasure”, the QIANTU K50, as the first pure electric city sports car in China, has daily driving pleasure as its soul, backed by a quality worthy of the racetrack. The emphasis on driving pleasure is shown in extensive desirable features including Brembo 4-piston brake calipers found in top sportscars and 19-inch forged aluminium wheels with Pirelli tires. To deliver a super sportscar performance, the QIANTU K50 has front and rear double wishbone suspension, a dual stabilizer structure and a chassis calibrated by British vehicle-testing company Mira to provide superb handling and superior comfort at once. To verify its sportscar quality and demonstrate its sportscar DNA, the QIANTU K50’s prototype was put to the test with flying colors on many professional racetracks in China and abroad, including Silverstone Circuit in the United Kingdom and domestic tracks in Beijing, Ordos, Zhuhai, Chengdu and Zhejiang.
Excellence from the inside out: Unique RESS at the Heart
Since its inception, Qiantu Motor has been committed to building a complete automobile manufacturing system that integrates design, R&D, manufacturing, sales and supply chain. It has not only established its own battery system production line but also mastered core electric technology and developed a unique rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) for the QIANTU K50.
To ensure efficient and robust power output, the QIANTU K50 has a front and rear dual electric motor based all-wheel drive system which accelerates it from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 200km/h and an overall battery range of 380km. Qiantu Motor’s signature RESS system fitted on the QIANTU K50 adopts high-performance Li-NCM cells with an energy intensity of up to 134.35Wh/kg which offer far higher safety, efficiency and durability than the industry standards. With a standard battery box made of high-strength SMC composite material, the RESS system scored 30% higher than the national standard in the battery impact test and reaches an IP67 protection level. In addition, advanced battery management and battery thermal management systems keep battery capacity loss within 5% in five years.
Strong service in South China
Qiantu Motor is stepping up its presence in South China, having opened in September its QIANTU LOUNGE brand experience store at G.T. Land Plaza in Tianhe District in Guangzhou, which provides a new platform for consumers in South China to know about Qiantu Motor while further strengthening the company’s service capacity in the region.
Since its launch on August 8th , the QIANTU K50 has found its way into the everyday life of an increasing number of consumers, bringing them extraordinary driving experiences. To help consumers start their QIANTU K50 experience early, Qiantu Motor offers highly competitive auto finance options, including 0 interest, ultra-long-term and ultra-low interest plans.
