The production of Russian electric vehicles Evolute will start in September with the i-JOY model – so far this is the only car of the brand, for which a Vehicle Type Approval has been obtained. Later, the i-Pro electric sedan will be launched, but, as it became known the day before, it will not be sold to individuals. So for some time, until the range expands with other models, those interested in the Russian electric car will be able to purchase only the i-JOY. And now Motorinvest has disclosed its parameters.
They don’t differ much from the i-Pro’s specs. So, i-JOY will receive a single electric motor with a capacity of 176 hp. The capacity of the traction battery will be 53 kWh, the declared range on one charge, according to measurements according to the NEDC standard, will be 405 km (but in reality it will, of course, be less). Up to 100 km / h, the car will accelerate in almost 9 s.
With a vehicle length of 4385 mm, the wheelbase length is 2655 mm – the i-JOY is 55 mm longer than the Geely Coolray both inside and out. At the same time, Coolray is more dynamic, and it has 10 mm more ground clearance. The cost of i-JOY has not yet been announced. Most likely it will be announced at the end of August during the official premiere and the Evolute brand itselfand specific models.
