【2016年4月25日,北京】今天,中国纯电动汽车品牌前途汽车亮相2016北京国际车展,为充满激情、追求驾驶乐趣的中国汽车爱好者带来敞篷版和准量产版K50这两款潜心力作。其中,首次亮相的敞篷版K50是迄今为止中国首款自主研发的敞篷版纯电动跑车,而另一款准量产版K50则在造型设计和工程结构上都较去年的工程样车更为成熟。

这两款车均采用电池中置的双座跑车布局,搭载双电机四驱系统,应用了前途汽车自主研发的纯电动汽车核心技术解决方案:通过全铝合金车身框架,以及全碳纤维车身覆盖件的应用,尽量减少电池配重对车身总质量和加速性能的影响;通过独有RESS 可再充电能量储存系统对电池进行严格的恒温控制,确保电池在全路况、全天候下的可靠性和耐久性;通过VCU整车控制管理系统,实现对电动汽车电驱系统、可充电能源系统、充电系统等的统筹管理及整车控制。

可以看出,前途汽车想要打造一台具备更好驾驶体验、更优安全性能的纯电动跑车。2015年,中国新能源汽车市场呈现出一片喧嚣繁荣之势,然而国人对电动汽车企业造车的初衷仍持有怀疑态度,对国产电动汽车品牌在性能、质量上也充满担忧。前途汽车作为新建纯电动汽车企业会如何应对?

一年以来,前途汽车着重发力于K50的整车优化和量产车型的品质保证。去年11月,前途汽车K50工程样车顺利完成3万公里耐久性测试和C-NCAP碰撞测试;又于今年初与博世、埃驰等全球顶级汽车技术供应商签约成为战略合作伙伴;而前途汽车以“新能源汽车特殊工艺”为核心全新规划的苏州生产基地也已于今年2月奠基。

“此次北京车展对于前途汽车而言意义非凡,”前途汽车董事长陆群先生也在车展期间吐露心声,“我们不仅希望通过车展上的亮相让更多消费者认识前途汽车这个品牌,更希望通过这个难得的与消费者面对面交流互动的机会,获得更多直接来自他们的信息反馈。离量产还有一年多的时间,我们可以根据消费者的需求进一步完善我们的产品,打造更加贴合用户需求的K50。”

如果说去年上海车展时炫酷的跑车造型和别致的“蜻蜓”标志是前途汽车给中国汽车爱好者和跑车文化拥趸带来的一份惊喜,那么本次北京车展上的敞篷版及准量产版K50则更像前途汽车交出的一份中期作业。从这一年内取得的进步可以看到,前途汽车正在“先天下之行而行”,满怀着对纯电动汽车事业的激情与探索精神,通过脚踏实地的努力,全力打造真正满足汽车爱好者需求的高性能纯电动汽车。

【Beijing, April 25】Today at 2016 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, Chinese electric vehicle brand Qiantu Motor brings K50 roadster and quasi-production K50 for passionate Chinese automotive fans pursuing driving pleasure. The debut K50 roadster is the first open-top electric sports car developed by a Chinese carmaker; the quasi-production K50 is optimized from the engineering sample car of last year in terms of styling design and engineering structure.

Both cars are two-seat sports cars with mid-battery, dual electric motors and an all-wheel-drive system. They both adopt the core technical solution for electric vehicles developed by Qiantu Motor (Suzhou) Co., Ltd., which includes the application of all aluminum alloy body frame and exterior body panel made of carbon fiber composite. Minimizing the influence of battery weight on total body weight and extracting maximum acceleration performance.

The Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) ensures strict and constant temperature control of the battery pack which provides high reliability and durability on any road surface and in any weather conditions. The RESS is integrated with the control of the dual electric motors drive system through the Vehicle Control Unit (VCU).

Qiantu Motor wants to build an electric sports car with better driving experience and higher safety performance. The Chinese new energy vehicle market was prosperous in 2015, however, Chinese consumers still has doubts about Chinese electric vehicle manufacturers, and they are also concerned about the performance and quality of domestic electric vehicle.

During this past year, Qiantu Motor focused on the vehicle optimization of K50 and quality assurance of future production models. In November 2015, K50 engineering prototype completed the 30,000 kilometers durability test and the C-NCAP crash test. At the beginning of 2016, Qiantu Motor established strategic partnership with world-class automotive parts suppliers including Bosch and IAC. In February 2016, Qiantu Motor celebrated the cornerstone laying of its Suzhou manufacturing center which is designed to meet the manufacturing demand on electric vehicles.

“It is important for us to participate this year’s Beijing autoshow,” said Lu Qun, Chairman of Qiantu Motor, “We want more potential buyers to know Qiantu through the exhibition. We also want to acquire direct feedback from potential buyers through face-to-face interactions. There is more than one year before the final production of K50. We can further optimize our products to meet the needs of our buyers.”

K50’s dazzling sports car styling and distinctive dragonfly logo were a pleasant surprise at 2015 Shanghai autoshow. Qiantu Motor offered Chinese car enthusiasts and sports car fans a brand new option. This year, the K50 roadster and quasi-production K50 at 2016 Beijing autoshow are more like a mid-term homework by Qiantu Motor. As a passionate industry pioneer, Qiantu Motor is striving to make high-performance electric vehicles that meet the expectations of car fans.
