Lightweight construction shining at Pudong automotive show
Through years of development, Shanghai Pudong International Automotive Exhibition has gained increasing influence and attracted an increasing number of car brands. Regardless of the many car brands and their cars on display, the QIANTU K50 stood out and grabbed many eyeballs as the first pure electric city sports car in China.
The QIANTU K50 has an incredibly lightweight construction, with dragonfly-like lightness being one of its biggest highlights. Its body comprises an all-aluminum frame and carbon-fiber covered parts, all in new composite materials. The model has a distinctive design language of “EXPRESSION OF LIFE”, which makes it lightweight and visually impactful at once. Its seats have aluminum-magnesium unibody seat frames with leather-Alcantara covers to provide a level of comfort comparable to that of a super sportscar.
The ultimate driving pleasure
As an electric city sportscar, the QIANTU K50, which is “built for city and born for driving pleasure”, 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.
To ensure efficient and robust power output, the QIANTU K50 has a front and rear dual electric motor based all-wheel drive system which accelerates it from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 200km/h and an overall battery range of 380km.

Moreover, the QIANTU K50 is equipped with Brembo 4-piston brake calipers found in top sportscars and 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with Pirelli tires to provide a true professional-grade sportscar quality.
