[October 13, 2016] Today, Qiantu Motor displayed its Qiantu K50 and a series of proprietary core technologies of electric vehicles at the 2016 Energy-saving and New Energy Automobile Industry Development Plan Achievement Exhibition (2016 IEEV China). This is the debut of Qiantu Motor after it was qualified as a producer of pure electric passenger vehicles and of its three core technologies, i.e. Vehicle Control Unit (VCU), Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) and overall lightweight technology.
VCU is like the brain of a person which controls the various "functional organs" of an electric vehicle and enables the vehicle's various modules, including travel management, energy management, communication management, human-machine interaction and safety management modules, to work harmoniously, thus guaranteeing the integration of the vehicle's driving system and energy system.
As the "Energy Regulatory System", RESS allows the battery to work safely at reasonable temperature conditions and can improve the charging/discharging performances and service life of the battery pack in all seasons. These technologies have all been applied to Qiantu K50 and undergone considerable tests, and the vehicle safety is well guaranteed in extreme weather conditions or upon crash.
For overall lightweight technology, Qiantu Motor fully utilizes new materials to make a lightweight but robust auto frame. Qiantu K50 is made of an aluminum alloy body frame and carbon fiber body cover which reduces the vehicle weight by about 250 to 300kg compared with the conventional body and chassis design. The carbon fiber body cover as suspended above the booth of Qiantu Motor has a weight of less than 100kg and well demonstrates Qiantu Motor's leading overall lightweight technology. With the substantial decline in vehicle weight, the number of power batteries is reduced and the acceleration and braking performances are optimized. It takes only 4.6 seconds for Qiantu K50 to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h, thus bringing the unlimited driving pleasures of electric vehicles to users. Qiantu Motor's Suzhou plant, which is under construction now, is expected to include a brand-new production system comprising the "carbon fiber fast molding workshop" and "all-aluminum body welding workshop", both designed for the lightweight of car body. The workshop is expected to start trial production in mid-2017.
CH-Auto Technology Co, Ltd., as the parent company of Qiantu Motor, has already established its electric vehicle division in 2010. The division focuses on the R&D of core technologies of electric vehicle. Its core electric vehicle parts are all independently designed. According to Mr. Lu Qun, chairman of Qiantu Motor, Qiantu Motor will continue to cherish the philosophy of "vehicle first and human first" to address the difficulties encountered in the development of its EV-related core technologies and develop the pure electric vehicles that bring pure "driving pleasures" to users.
