The SERES company presented the SERES SF5 electric car in January of this year, and today at the Shanghai Motor Show, announced the start of sales of the new product.
From April 21, the car will be available in all Huawei flagship stores in the country. The fact is that the SERES SF5 is the world’s first electric vehicle based on Huawei DriveONE. For those not in the know, it is a versatile platform that includes seven mechanical and power components of an electric drive: microcontroller (MCU), motor, gearbox, DC / DC converter (DCDC), charger (OBC), power distribution unit ( PDU) and Battery Management Unit (BCU). Simply put, such a platform increases autonomy and also improves the performance of the electric motor.
Thanks to Huawei DriveONE, the SERES SF5 electric SUV has a range of 180 km in urban mode and more than 1000 km in extended mode. The electric car has a lightweight aluminum chassis and four-ball joints, double-wishbone front suspension, and multi-link rear suspension providing faster acceleration, smoother ride, and stability on the road. The declared acceleration to “hundreds” – 4.68 s.
Of the interesting things in SERES SF5, it is also worth noting the Huawei HiCar system. It allows you to switch between applications on your smartphone and the vehicle’s host computer, providing access to navigation, music, and more. Also, the car is equipped with an 11-speaker audio system, an emergency recharge mode that allows you to recharge the battery of another electric vehicle (V2V), and sports front seats with ventilation, heating, and massage functions.
SERES SF5 will be sold in China in two versions. A car with rear-wheel drive will ask for $ 33,320, and with a full one – $ 37,925.
