Zhidou-D3-EV-China-auto-sales-statisticsSales figures for the Zhidou D3 EV in China.

Like the Zhidou D2, the two-seat electric car D3 is classified by the Chinese government as a real electric car, as opposed to a Low Speed Electric Vehicle (LSEV), which means it can be driven on the highway (it has a top speed of 100 km/h, 62 mph) and buyers benefit from green-car subsidies. Power comes from an electric motor with 30kW/40hp and 27,5Nm of torque, energy is stored in a 17,5 kWh Lithium-Ion battery pack, which gives the car a range of 180km. Dimensions are 2.808/1.499/1.555mm with a wheelbase of 1.865mm and a curb weight of 870kg. In the interior the first thing you’ll notice are the double 9″ color screens with 4G capability and Voice WeChat. This is very similar to what the Arcfox Lite has to offer. Other rivals are the Zotye E200 and Chery eQ1.
