The latest cars, latest innovations and technological developments will be introduced. The Shanghai Auto Show will focus on the main trends such as electro mobility, autonomous driving, and mobility concepts with the motto “Embracing Change”. In this direction, we have compiled the electric cars introduced at the exhibition for our readers.
Audi A6 E-Tron
The all-electric A6 e-Tron is built from the “Premium Platform Electric” or PPE platform, which will form the basis of the cars in the C and B Production segment of the brand from the end of 2022. The design of the car is eye-catching, while its size is quite magnificent: It is about 5 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.5 meters high. Equipped with two electric motors, the car can travel 700 km on a full charge according to WLTP standards. The front lights of the car have Image reflection technology, while the side mirrors have cameras.
Volkswagen VW ID 6
The VW ID 6, which will only be available in China, is produced in two versions. The CROZZ version was produced in the north of China, and the other version, the X, was produced in the south of the country. Thanks to the LED light bars on the front of the car, it is easy to notice that it is an all-electric vehicle. Both cars have their own design elements. Both ID 6s are offered with two batteries; one of the batteries can travel about 280 miles, and the other can travel up to about 380 miles. The interior designs of the vehicles are quite minimal.
Another German brand that introduced its electric vehicles at the fair was Mercedes. Produced within the Mercedes-EQ range, the EQs is built with a design concept of “entering a breathtaking new and intuitive era”. One of the most notable aspects of the car was its digital interior. The MBUX virtual instrument panel with augmented reality makes the car’s driving experience easier for everyday life. Extremely luxuriously furnished seats also create a massage effect with relaxing heat.
Genesis Electrified G80
Genesis Electrified G80 becomes the first electric car of the brand, the car is called the G80 because it is like an electric version of the brand’s G80 model. The car, which can travel 427 km with a full battery, is equipped with many luxury freezes, such as noise prevention and camera-assisted suspension. The vehicle will be available only in China but is expected to be available in North America as well.
Silk-FAW Hongqi S9
Born from the collaboration of the famous Italian design and engineering company Silk EV with FAW, one of China’s largest car manufacturers, the Hongqi S9 was announced as the first vehicle of the Sports Car Series Hongqi. Signed by the famous car designer Walter De Silva, the car has an electric V8 engine and, of course, one of its most important features is zero-emission driving. The Hongqi S9 looks like it will make its name in the electric sports car lane as a Sino-Italian collaboration where elegance and sustainability technology come together.
