［SUZHOU, August 8, 2018］Qiantu Motor’s first production model, the QIANTU K50, manufactured at its plant in Suzhou, has officially hit the market with a subsidized price of RMB 686,800, available for booking on its official website from today. The launch was celebrated with an exciting E-roadster invitational at the Suzhou plant, where the model was delivered to its first customers. At the same time, Qiantu Motor celebrated its launch with a “K50 Cup” E-roadster Invitational on the makeshift racetrack at the Qiantu plant.
Extraordinary pleasure for both driver and passenger
As NEV startups have mushroomed in China, Qiantu Motor has carved out a distinctive identity of its own by putting driving pleasure at the core and promising to bring a disruptive experience for both driver and passenger and now delivering the promise with the QIANTU K50. “Everything we do at QIANTU, we do it to build a high-quality car for people who know cars,” said Lu Qun, Chairman of Qiantu Motor, at the launch ceremony. “We expect our first product, the QIANTU K50, to stimulate people’s enthusiasm of driving, to infinitely magnify all the pleasure a car has to offer and provide a pleasurable experience that exceeds expectations every time it is used. It is a car that makes driving singular pleasure.”
As an electric city roadster, the QIANTU K50 has driving pleasure as its soul. With double wishbone front and rear suspension, a dual stabilizer structure, and a chassis calibrated by British vehicle-testing company Mira, the car offers superb handling and excellent stability at once. To make handling even better for city use in particular, the QIANTU K50 is fitted with a dynamic torque vectoring system that provides near-perfect neutral steering so that the car can both accommodate fierce driving and adapt to complex urban traffic conditions.
The QIANTU K50 is an electric car that makes driving relaxing and anxiety-free. It boasts an outstanding lightweight construction with a body comprising an all-aluminum frame and carbon-fiber covered parts, all in new composite materials. The model is powered by a front and rear dual electric motor based all-wheel drive system that produces a maximum power of 320kW in the BOOST mode and gives a NEDC overall range of more than 380km, adequate for daily use. It deserves special mention that the QIANTU K50 features a rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) and an active liquid cooling and heating system to ensure normal use in the temperature range between -30°C and +55°C and unaffected battery range, in addition to a battery management system (BMS) that keeps battery capacity loss within 5% in five years.
To demonstrate the powerful performance of the QIANTU K50 which is “built for city and born for driving pleasure”, Qiantu Motor celebrated its launch with a “K50 Cup” E-roadster Invitational on the day of launch. On the makeshift racetrack at the Qiantu plant, the QIANTU K50 stunned the audience with its agile and swift movement and compellingly demonstrated its “built for city” DNA. In addition, the QIANTU K50 is available in six standard color options-Vibrant White, Night Black, Dune Gold, Phantom Silver, YuanQi Red and Dream Blue—to suit different preferences.
Comprehensive warranty to make driving pleasure lasting
At the launch event, the official subsidized price of the QIANTU K50 was announced at RMB 686,800. It merits noting that the QIANTU K50’s subsidized price is uniform nationwide regardless of the differences of NEV subsidy policies in different regions. In the face of the trend of decreasing government NEV subsidy, Chairman Lu Qun said that even if the city has low or no subsidy, the QIANTU K50’s price will remain the same.
The launch event also saw the official start of booking for the QIANTU K50 and the announcement of the sales and service policies, which offer owners a solid protection for them to enjoy the extraordinary driving pleasure of the K50 in a hassle-free way. In addition, Qiantu Motor also offers a highly competitive auto finance scheme, including zero interest, ultra-long-term and ultra-low interest options. The 24-installment and 36-installment options enjoy the low-interest policy. For the 36-installment option, one can get a fantastic city roadster with a down payment as low as RMB137,400. Moreover, to put electric car owners’ “car use anxiety” to rest, Qiantu Motor, via the “Qiantu Yi” service platform guided by the “lifecycle consultant service” concept, offer “four permanent services” for individual consumers who buy the QIANTU K50 before December 31, 2018, i.e. permanent free warranty, permanent free maintenance, permanent unconditional free data use, and permanent free roadside rescue. These will make car ownership effortless and enjoyable.
Delivery to the first owners
Building a high-quality car is a promise solemnly made by Qiantu Motor to consumers. Since the establishment of its EV division in 2010, Qiantu Motor has stayed steadfast in its core philosophy of “Evolution in Motion” by taking every step solidly towards its goal, delivering on QIANTU’s promise of “building a high-quality car” with a fantastic product and taking them on a new journey of a pleasurable car life.
At the launch event, a grand delivery ceremony was held for the first owners of the QIANTU K50. In the witness of hundreds of guests and media, Qiantu Motor Chairman Lu Qun passed car keys to the first owners one by one. The first owners will be the best spokespersons and messengers for the QIANTU K50 as the fantastic car brings them great experiences and accompanies them to open new life possibilities. The day after, QIANTU K50 customer experience activity will be held, in order to make more customers feel the driving pleasure of QIANTU K50 close enough.
