In China, Baojun launched the E300 and E300 Plus electric vehicles, which have a range of 305 kilometers (190 miles). Six variants are priced between RMB 64,800 (US$9,200) and RMB 84,800 (US$12,000).
The E300 has a synchronous fixed ratio gearbox and rear-engine layout, generating 40 kW of maximum power and 150 N·m of maximum torque. It has a top speed of 100 km/h and supports DC fast charging, which enables it to be fully charged in one hour.
All E300 models have height-adjustable and time-delayed shutdown functional headlights, concealed door handles, sparkling aluminum wheels, a touchscreen multifunction steering wheel and an interior incorporating eco-friendly materials. The driver and passenger seats are four-way adjustable, creating flexible seating space.
Safety has been enhanced with the adoption of electronic stability control (ESC), the anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), hydraulic brake assist (HBA), and dual front air bags. More than 80% of the body consists of high-strength steel. The battery pack is also wrapped in super-strong steel and equipped with an active power-off system for extra protection in the event of a collision.
Baojun is offering a special package to E300 and E300 Plus buyers. It includes a low down payment, 24 periods of zero interest and a replacement subsidy of RMB 3,500 (US$495).
